The 10-6A season had a familiar storyline as once again it was Sachse and Rowlett battling it out for district supremacy.

And for the third consecutive season, it was the Mustangs who retained the 10-6A belt, handing the Eagles a 48-0 defeat in their head-to-head meeting in the final game of the year.

It was no surprise that Sachse led the way in all-district honors, as well, nabbing 35 spots on the list, including a pair of superlative honors. The Eagles were not far behind, with 22 selections on the list.

District newcomer Wylie had a strong inaugural campaign in making the playoffs and a big reason was senior quarterback Rashad Dixon, who was named 10-6A most valuable player.

South Garland senior Jaquarion Turner was tabbed the offensive most valuable player, with Sachse senior Braylen Brooks earning defensive player of the year honors.

Lakeview snagged a pair of superlative awards as running back Camar Wheaton was named offensive sophomore of the year and defensive tackle Ikechukwu Iwunnah was voted the defensive sophomore of the year.

Naaman Forest sophomore tight end Tommy Dunn was chosen as the newcomer of the year, while Sachse and North Garland shared the coaching staff of the year honor.

Here is a look at the Sachse and Rowlett selections:

The Mustangs got off to a 0-3 start for the first time ever, but head coach Mark “Red” Behrens and his staff got things turned around in time for the 10-6A season, as they rolled to an undefeated 7-0 record to claim the district championship.They would run that winning streak to eight in a row with a playoff win over Plano East before falling in the area finals to Waco Midway.
