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.

Offensive linemen Cole Garcia (65 pancake blocks) and Juac Angoi (45 pancakes) were also 1st Team recipients.

Broussard, Moore, Landry, Garcia and Angoi were also named 1st Team All-State while Mask made the All-State 2nd Team.

Making the All-District 2nd Team were sophomore Jack Bradley, Carson Garrett (68-69 PATs, 5-7 FGs) and Chris Sigsbee (104 tackles, team-high 8 sacks).

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).
