Winning a state championship brings a lot of attention — and awards. The Bishop Lynch Friars found that out recently with the naming of the All-State and All-District teams.
A total of 15 Friars received All-District recognition, including six on the 1st Team and one of those receiving a superlative. Jarek Broussard was named Special Teams Player of the Year in addition to being a 1st Team selection after a season that included 2,478 all-purpose yards (842 rushing, 830 receiving and 806 return yards) and 23 total touchdowns.
Broussard, Moore, Landry, Garcia and Angoi were also named 1st Team All-State while Mask made the All-State 2nd Team.
Other 2nd Team selections include Brodrick Watson (62 tackles, 4 sacks), Daniel Packard (179 tackles, 2 interceptions, TD return) and Jeremy Harris (71 tackles, team-high 4 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles).
Michael Menditto played on both sides of the line and received honorable mention for both. Menditto had 83 tackles and 6.5 sacks on the defensive line.
During Saturday's championship celebration, WFAA-TV and Chevy presented the Friars with its Team of the Year award, and the players were recognized during Sunday night's High School Sports Special on WFAA. Watch the segment here: https://youtu.be/csLAIegmMb0.
