Vernon senior Brandon Urquizo has been named the District 5-3A Most Valuable Player after having a big hand in the Lions' turnaround this season.
Urquizo threw for 1,376 yards and 13 touchdowns, ran for another 569 yards and 13 scores plus started at cornerback for the Lions, who went from 2-8 in 2011 to 9-3 this season.
State semifinalist Graham took home both the Offensive and Defensive MVP honors.
Quarterback Ben Davis threw for more than 3,300 yards for the 13-2 Steers, while safety Jerrod Mahan made plenty of big plays on defense, including two interceptions for touchdowns in a 34-24 win over Vernon that ended up deciding the 5-3A title.
Graham's Landon Gonzales and Vernon's Corrie Luster were 5-3A Newcomers of the Year as sophomores, while Lions senior AJ Naredo was the Special Teams MVP.
Led by Mark Bateman, Vernon also was named the district's top coaching staff.
Hirschi, which finished fourth in district, had four first-team selections. Quarterback Terrance Cooper, receiver Dominique Bobo and lineman Reggie Hickman were offensive picks, while linebacker Colin Joyce was the Huskies' defensive first-team player.
