Three players each from Boyd-Buchanan and South Pittsburg were named to the Tennessee Sports Writers Association 2012 all-state football teams for their respective classifications.
Buccaneers quarterback Jim Cardwell, offensive lineman Malik Brewer and linebacker Rance Harden are joined on the Class 2A team by Marion County running back Blake Zeman. On the 1A team, South Pittsburg running back Demetric Johnson, linebacker Corbin Hale and defensive back Jake Stone are joined by Lookout Valley punter Morgan Sexton.
"Those are three very deserving, hard-working kids that represent the school the right way, so I'm happy to see them get recognized for the way they play the game," Bucs coach Grant Reynolds said. "Malik had a great year up front for us and Jim was our leader on offense, and having someone like him back to lead the offense is a great asset to the team. Rance is just a really smart, hard-nosed and aggressive guy that did a lot of good things for us on both sides of the ball."
