Indians earn honors
Many Byhalia Indians have received post-season honors for their performances on the football field in 2011.
Head coach Markeith Washington said Andrey Collins headlined the list. The junior, who rushed for more than 2,000 yards, was selected to the all-state squad.
“I’m proud of him,” Washington said. “It’s a great accomplishment.”
Tackle Jamal Danley, a senior, was named the Region 3-3A most valuable player on defense.
Making the all-district first team were Collins, senior cornerback Cameron Stewart, sophomore linebacker Curtis Akins and junior right tackle Davion Johnson.
Selected to the second team were junior right guard Ferdalreus Wilson, junior strong safety Cordell Anderson, junior free safety DeAndre Buchanan and senior linebacker Corderious Dean.
Receiving honorable mention recognition were junior running back Devonte Norman, sophomore quarterback Markeise Rodgers, junior center Edwin Jones and junior running back Terence Phinessee.
The Indians made the state playoffs and lost in the first round at Booneville. They finished 6-6.
