Since 2008, Ryan has landed nine players on the Associated Press’ all-state football team.
That streak was extended Thursday morning when the 2012 AP Class 5A all-state team was announced and Ryan junior defensive lineman Nolan Robinson was named to the first team.
The voting is done by sportswriters across the state, and only statistics from the regular season are considered.
Robinson finished Ryan’s nine-game regular season with 55 tackles, 11 tackles for loss, two sacks and a blocked punt returned for a touchdown.
It’s the fourth consecutive year a Ryan defensive lineman has been named to the first team.
Ryan senior offensive lineman Matt Griffin, junior defensive lineman J.T. Williams, senior defensive back Reynal Caldwell and junior punter Marc Orozco received honorable mention.
Southlake Carroll senior quarterback Kenny Hill was named the Class 5A Offensive Player of the Year. Hill passed for 2,291 yards and 20 touchdowns and rushed for 905 yards and 22 touchdowns.
DeSoto senior linebacker Taylor Young was named the Defensive Player of the Year. Young had 130 tackles, four interceptions, three sacks, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.
