    Donovan Stewart’s Class 1A All State Team


    A month after Dresden won the school’s first state championship in football, tnhighschoolfootball.com lead writer Donovan Stewart is looking back on the season in 1A with a statewide all state team.


    Tnhighschoolfootball.com will roll out an all state team for each classification (1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A, 6A, as well as both Division II classifications) this week.

    Also selected was an Offensive and Defensive Player of the Year and as well as a Coach of the Year. The selection process was based on discussions with 1A coaches across the state as well as seeing players live and on film.


    Dresden under the tutelage of second year coach Derek Rang won the school’s first state title in dominating fashion outscoring their opposition (49.0 to 9.8) for the season.
