Running back/linebacker Jameon Gaskin was also named Athlete of the Year.
On the eve of the Coffee Trojans' first appearance in a state football championship game, the Region 1-6A All Region teams have been released. And three Trojans top the list. Quarterback Wade Sumner has been named Offensive Player of the Year while defensive lineman Derrick Newton was named Defensive Player of the Year. Athlete of the Year honors went to running back/linebacker Jameon Gaskin, whose offensive performance this season (after three years of playing solely defense) might have saved the Trojans' season.

Wide receiver Dalrone Donaldson
Wide receiver Milton Jackson
