Tompkins paces 19-6A all-district football honors

Posted

The 2020 high school football season was yet another impressive, if not surprising, one for Katy ISD and District 19-6A.

For the first time in 12 years, the district crowned a new champion in Tompkins, which went undefeated at 6-0. Katy saw its incredible 11-year district title win streak and 75-game district win streak snapped. The Tigers finished second in district to Tompkins at 5-1, followed by Taylor (4-2) and Seven Lakes (3-3).

The strength of the district would be proven in the postseason. Katy went on to dominate Class 6A, Division II and win its ninth state championship. The Falcons and Mustangs each finished as regional semifinalists.

For all its success during district play, Tompkins was well-represented when the 19-6A all-district selections, voted upon by district coaches, were announced last week.

Falcons senior quarterback Jalen Milroe was named Most Valuable Player. Milroe completed 65.9 percent of his passes for 950 yards and 12 touchdowns to no interceptions in district play, while rushing for 102 yards and two touchdowns. It was the second straight year the Alabama signee won the district’s MVP award.

Tompkins senior safety Colby Huerter was recognized as Defensive Player of the Year. He totaled 40 tackles with three interceptions and two fumbles caused in district play. Falcons coach Todd McVey was honored as Coach of the Year.

Mayde Creek senior running back Julius Loughridge was named the district’s Offensive Player of the Year after sharing the honor last season. Loughridge rushed for 837 yards and 10 touchdowns in district play.

Taylor senior Trevor Woods, the Mustangs’ punter and returner, was named Special Teams Player of the Year. Cinco Ranch sophomore quarterback Gavin Rutherford was named Newcomer of the Year after throwing for 798 yards and seven touchdowns in five district games.
