It was a season to remember for District 9-5A Division II, especially in Region III as the Port Neches-Groves Indians and Fort Bend Marshall Buffaloes both advanced to the 5A Division II Region III Finals and played each other.

Of course, the Indians downed the Buffaloes 29-21 in that battle after absorbing a 35-14 loss back in district play.

PN-G first-year coach Jeff Joseph went on to lead the Indians (13-3) to the Class 5A Division II State Championship Game were they fell to defending state champion Dallas Oak Cliff 34-24.

The Buffaloes (12-2) picked up most of the superlative honors on the All-District 9-5A Division II Football Team due to winning the district title.

However, the Indians were well-represented.

Wide receivers Chance Prosperie and Shea Adams were both First Team picks along with fullback/tight end Brock Hebert, center Bryce Loftin and offensive linemen Jansen Ware and Jackson Christian. Indian linebacker Mason Droddy was also First Team along with Cole Crippen, who made it as a punter, and Andres Sandoval at kicker.

Crippen made Second Team at quarterback along with offensive lineman Mario Miguel, defensive lineman Isaac Baker, cornerback Dylan Lawless and safety Torryan Hinton and Adams made it as a utility player.

The Nederland Bulldogs were represented on the First Team by offensive lineman Jack Bieber and defensive lineman Joseph Dugat.

Bulldogs that made the Second Team includes running back Hubert Thomas, linebacker Landen Caywood and punter Carter Piletere.
