Picayune is fresh off winning their second 5A State Championship in two years, so its no surprise the Maroon Tide lead the way in 5A awards. Head Coach Cody Stogner was awarded 5A Coach of the year, whereas phenom runningback Dante Dowdell was chosen as the 5A Player of the Year. Four other Picayune players were granted 1st Team honors. Also worth noting include Gautier’s 10,000-yard passer Kaden Irving, Vancleave’s state-leading rusher John Peterson and George County’s up-and-coming sophomore Deuce Knight earning a spot on the 2nd Team.

Moss Point’s Jamarious Brown was crowned the 4A Defensive Player of the Year, and Poplarville’s two-headed monster in runningbacks Avan Jarvis and Maurice Travis was also recognized.
