Two Sweetwater High School football players â€” senior defensive lineman Tadeo Canon-Masjoan and senior linebacker Ryan Linebaugh â€” have received honorable mention to the Associated Press Sports Editors Class 3A all-state team released on Tuesday.
Both Canon-Masjoan and Linebaugh were named to the All-District 4-3A first team that was announced in early December.
Linebaugh had a team-high 135 tackles and Canon-Masjoan 118. Canon-Mas-joan also led the team with 16 tackles for a loss, nine sacks and 12 pass hurries and he and Linebaugh both had three fumble recover-ies, while Linebaugh also caused three fumbles.
This was the first time for either Canon-Masjoan or Linebaugh to receive all-state recognition, though both of them also earned all-district honors in 2011.
Kam Williams of Midland Greenwood at punter was the only 4-3A player on the APSE all-state first team. Wylie offensive lineman Riley Olsen and Monahans linebacker Jackson Scharf made the second team. Wylieâ€™s DeAndre Key (offensive line) and Garrett Martin (running back), Monahansâ€™ Joe Brandenburg (offensive line) and Tivo Armendariz (defensive line), Green-woodâ€™s Williams (quarter-back), Logan Day (linebac-ker) and Mason Fraley (defensive back) and Big Springâ€™s Chris Nunez (offensive line) also received all-state honorable mention.
