Nine area high school football players were named to the Class 2B and 2A All-State team, the Florida Sports Writers Association announced Tuesday.
In 2B, offensive lineman Jonathon Rodgers and linebacker Kendrick Odom of state runner-up Union County were joined by rival Dixie County running back Paul O'Hara, offensive lineman Bobby Leverette and linebacker Joey Miller, as well as state interception leader Andres Morgan of Hamilton County on the first team.
The 2A first team featured three members of Bradford's state semifinalists.
Mammoth offensive lineman Brandon Luther earned his third consecutive all-state selection, and he was joined by defensive lineman Letroy Guion and tailback Alphonso Smith, who broke single-season school records for yards and touchdowns in 2003.
