The District 5-4A all-district team is out, just beating Christmas.
And that's because in the playoffs District 5-4A beat just about everybody with Denton Guyer winning its first state championship Saturday in Arlington in Division I.
And Rider made its first trip to the state semifinals in Division II, bowing out one week ago.
Guyer junior quarterback Jerrod Heard was named the Most Valuable Player of the district. Heard had 1,139 yards rushing and 1,147 passing during the regular season as the Wildcats went 7-0 in District 5-4A.
Senior defensive end Gray Schantz of Lake Dallas was named the Defensive MVP, while Azle senior quarterback Corbyn Koiner was the Offensive MVP.
Rider went 6-1 in 5-4A but only took home one special honor and that was kicker-punter Brandon Williams as the Special Teams MVP.
The Raiders did have seven players on the 23-man first-team defense and six more on the 23-man first-team offense.
The Raiders' defensive honorees included both safeties — D.J. Arnold and Fred Williams — who combined for 15 interceptions.
Other Rider defenders on the first team were defensive end Sam Scribner; defensive lineman Cody Ribble; inside linebacker Josh Haisten; outside linebacker Caleb Levell; and cornerback Tanner Weir.
Wichita Falls High School placed punter Chance McWhorter on the first team.
Rider offensive first-teamers were quarterback J.T. Barrett, who was injured in the second 5-4A game; running back Domanic Thrasher; receivers John Hatch and Brylan McCoy; tackle Harrison Sorge; and guard Mason McGinty.
The Raiders placed seven players on the second team, while WFHS had six second-team selections, including Orryn Clark who made it on both sides of the ball.
