It was another banner year for high school football in the Pensacola area, and that's certainly reflected in the Associated Press Class 5A and 6A All-State teams.
The area had a total of 16 players named to the 5A and 6A teams on Friday, as selected by sports editors and sports writers from around the state.
The West Florida Jaguars, which wrapped up the school's first-ever unbeaten season before losing to eventual state champion Godby, lead the way with five Class 5A All-State selections.
Two of those picks were first-team selections, as junior wide receiver Lawrence Lee and kicker Luke Jackson were named to the first-team offense.
Quarterback Joey Baker, defensive end Nate Crawford and defensive back Demetrius Smith were all named to the second-team units.
Lee was among the state leaders in receiving yards with 1,104 yards and 11 touchdowns on 56 catches. He also finished with 301 rushing yards and four touchdowns. He added another touchdown on a kickoff return.
Jackson was the area leader in scoring this past season, converting 47-of-49 extra points and 11-of-15 field goals to finish with a total of 80 points. He had 67 of 71 kickoffs go into the end zone for touchbacks.
Baker was in a tight battle all season for the top passer in the state, ultimately finishing second with 3,106 yards and 27 touchdowns on a 199-of-349 passing slate.
He also led the Jaguars in rushing yards with 786 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Crawford and Smith were part of a Jaguars' defensive unit that led the area in interceptions and among the leaders in sacks.
Smith finished with five interceptions, while Crawford ended his season with 70 tackles and five sacks.
Gulf Breeze had two selections to the Class 5A All-State team, both members of that massive Dolphins offensive line. Senior guard Austin Droogsma was named to the second-team offensive line, while senior guard Alex Pagonis was picked as a third-defense offensive lineman.
Players from six different teams are represented on the Class 6A All-State team, led by Pace kicker Ryan Santoso as the area's lone first-team selection.
Santoso was named to the first-team after leading the state in field goals made with 14-of-17 attempts converted. He was also perfect on extra point attempts at 29-for-29. In kickoffs, 46 of his 48 kicks reached the end zone for a touchback.
Four players got the nod for second-team honors, led by Navarre tailback Jay Warren. Warren was the area's top rusher this season, finishing with 1,832 yards and 19 touchdowns.
Warren is joined on the second-team unit by teammate Nick Benton (89 tackles, 5 INT, 20 PBUs), who was one of three second-team defensive selections.
Milton's DeMichael McQueen (160 tackles, 2 sacks) and Pensacola defensive back Reggie Warren were also second-team defense picks.
The third team features Navarre wide receiver Jordan Leggett (55-964, 7 TDs), Pine Forest offensive lineman Shamar Johnson and Tate punter Todd Ryals (20 punts, 37.9 average; 17-of-17 PATs).
Pine Forest's Trebian Suggs and Milton's Andre Flakes were honorable mention selections.
