Ridge Point Panthers’ linebacker and running back Chad Bailey was voted District 20 6A most valuable player by the district’s head coaches.
Last season Bailey was voted District 20 6A defensive most valuable player, and in his sophomore year, he was a first team all-district selection.
“I just want to thank my teammates and coaches for making me the best player I could be. Bless up,” Bailey said.
Prior to the season, Bailey, a four-star recruit, announced his intention to play at the University of Missouri next year.
This season the Panthers were District 20-6A champions with an undefeated 7-0 record and had a 9-2 overall record. The postseason awards included a number of Panthers. In addition to Bailey, quarterback Aaron Allen was voted offensive co-most valuable player, and defensive tackle Dennis Osagiede was voted defensive most valuable player.
“Thank you. And its an honor. Hard work does pay off,” Allen said.
Allen is a three-star recruit who has committed to Louisiana Tech.
“Thank you. I appreciate the recognition and honor to be the defensive MVP. God bless,” Osagiede said.
A three-star recruit, Osagiede has committed to play for the University of Massachusetts next year.
In addition, the Panthers’ Jack Fisher was voted best deep snapper, Dylan Malpass was voted best kicker, and Head Coach Brett Sniffin was voted co-coach of the year.
Wade Freeman of Bush was named offensive co-most valuable player.
“Thank you. Hard work and working with our offensive coordinator Shawn Gray helped me a lot,” Freeman said.
Sophomore Cameron Peters of Dulles was named offensive newcomer of the year, freshman Trey De Los Santos of Clements was named defensive newcomer of the year, and Chris Vann of Clements and Ainias Smith of Dulles were named co-all-purpose players.
“I want to thank God for giving me the opportunity to play the game, and thank my coaching staff for putting me in a position to make plays,” Smith said. “I also want to thank my teammates for putting in the work, so we can all be successful. None of it could have been done without them.”
Brennan Williams of Austin was named punter of the year, and Naveon Mitchell of Travis was named return specialist of the year.
“I just want to say thank you. It’s a blessing. I am extremely blessed,” Mitchell said.
