For the first time in Talihina football coach Kelly Gravittâ€™s eight-year tenure, the Golden Tigers made it to the state semifinals â€” and along with way won District A-6 with a perfect regular season. Thus, several Golden Tigers got top honors from their district.
Talihina quarterback Alan Lockhart was named the districtâ€™s Most Valuable Player.
Logan Hillebrand was named the Linebacker of the Year in District A-6.
Bryar Humphreys was the Running Back of the Year.
Preston Derby was awarded the Newcomer of the Year.
The Blue brothers, Caleb and Jordan, were named the Co-Offensive Linemen of the Year for District A-6.
Several other Talihina players made the All-District A-6 Team. As a combined wide receiver and cornerback, Christian McClain made the all-district team. On the defensive side, Ty Trowbridge and Marcus Baker made it as a linebacker, while Tucker Trowbridge did so as a defensive end.
