A pair of Ben Bolt-Palito Blanco High School football players were among those in Class 1A who were named all-state by the Texas Sports Writers Association.

Ben Bolt guard Juan Garcia, a senior this season, was an honorable mention. Teammate and linebacker Justin Lopez, also a senior, was also an honorable mention.

The two played key roles in helping the Badgers back to the Class 1A playoff this season.

In Class 2A, Hebbronville defensive back Jose Perez, an all-South Texas and all-district selection, earned third team all-state honors.

Hebbronville running back Joseph Maldonado, only a junior, was an honorable mention.
