Given the mantra of “team-first” that has fueled Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School the entire football season it is fitting that only a handful of Tiger Sharks were recognized on the Florida Athletic Coaches Association All-District 2-Class 1A team.
The FACA District 2 encompasses teams from Walton County to Jackson County.
The 1A team represents the small schools within those boundaries.
Port St. Joe placed just one player, sophomore linebacker Marcell Johnson, on the All-District team for players regardless of grade.
State top-ranked Blountstown, represented by the Coach of the Year Greg Jordan and district Most Valuable Player Hunter Jordan, placed the most players on the team with eight.
Chipley had five and Sneads and Vernon four apiece.
The district All-Senior squad included Drew Lacour, Jacobie Jones, Natron Lee and Dwayne Griggs from Port St. Joe.
Griggs finished third in the MVP voting behind Hunter Jordan and running back Kobe McCrary from Chipley.
All players selected to the all-District seniors team are eligible to play in an all-star game in late December.
Nominations for those players will be made later by coaches from the district.
