Playing in one of the toughest districts in Central Texas, several Elgin Wildcats stood out on the football field as All-District honors were released last week. 

Senior Declayvin Simmons earned first team honors as a wide receiver. Simmons finished the season with 54 receptions for 1,113 yards and 12 touchdowns. 

Representing Elgin on the second team were linebacker Ethan Owens, quarterback Ben Langford, corner back Willie Johnson, fullback Dontae Woodard, running back Jerome Wreh and linebacker Michael Guyton. 

Wildcats earning honorable mention included safety Ty Mcfarlin, safety Shelbie Hill, and offensive linemen Cedric Truitt, Kadin Lawrence and Eliel Salazar. 

Athletes earning Academic All-District honors included: Jajuan Singleton, Daniel Gonzales, Xavier Briones, Odie Henze, Jacob Navejas, Jonathan Gonzales, Michael Price, Dontae Woodard, Elijah Hubbard and Brian Aldridge. 

A few Wildcats earned the Academic All-State distinction. Nominated students include seniors who are of good moral character and have an overall grade point average of 92 or above for 9th-11th grade and current 12th grade courses. When reviewing the nominations, the Texas High School Coaches Association considers each students’ GPA, class rank, SAT and/or ACT score. The students receive points based on each criterion. 

Those athletes are: Jonathan Briones, 2nd Team All-State; Jonathan Gonzales, 2nd Team All-State; Elijah Hubbard, 2nd Team All-State; Kadin Lawrence, Honorable Mention; Jacob Navejas, Honorable Mention.

The Wildcats finished the season with a 3-7 record, and 3-5 in District 19-5A, with wins over Cedar Creek, Bastrop and East View under first-year head coach Jens Anderson.
