A lengthy list of head coach Paul Gould's Alto Yellowjackets garnered yet another award this week, when the announcement of the 63rd Annual Collin Street Bakery/Texas Sports Writers Association's Class A All-State Football team was made known.

Highlighting the Alto choices was running back Jacolby Whitaker, a 5-11, 250 lb., senior earning a spot onto the First Team.

Two Yellowjackets were voted onto the Second Team.

Armando Arroyo, a 5-10, 230 lb. senior, was selected at the center position, while place kicker Nicolas Leon, 5-10, 190 lb., senior accompanied Arroyo onto the unit.

Honorable Mention from the offensive side from Alto included, quarterback Zac Sturns, a 6-2, 185 lb. senior.

Meanwhile, a pair of Mean Sting players earned Honorable Mention accolades on the defensive team.

Tyarius Hackett, 6-1, 195-lb., a defensive end, and junior linebacker Logan Smith, 5-10, 180 lb., senior were the Alto selections on that roster.
