Oakman quarterback Jase Trotter has been a leader for the Wildcats for more than three years, guiding the team to 28 wins and three second-round playoff appearances during his time under center.

Defensive back Purvis Coger has been just as dominant on the defense end, allowing only three touchdowns over the last two years.

Both Trotter and Coger are first-team All-State selections by the Alabama Sports Writers Association.

They are among five first-team selections in the Daily Mountain Eagle’s coverage area, along with Dora defensive lineman A.J. Smoot and Lynn’s prolific duo of quarterback Brody Meeks and  receiver Ben Cagle.

Trotter, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound senior, was Oakman’s offensive leader, passing for 2,409 yards with 19 touchdowns and five interceptions. He added 859 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns on the ground.

Unlike other positions, there is only one first-team quarterback in each classification.

“When we needed a play, not only coaches, but the players, looked at him,” Oakman coach Mark Hastings said. “He came through more times than not. He did that for three years. He’s an incredible leader on and off the field. It’s hard to replace a player like that.”

Coger, a 6-1, 170-pound junior, is a first-team selection for the second straight season.

He finished with six interceptions, four fumble recoveries and eight pass breakups on defense. He also had 551 receiving yards along with five touchdowns.

“Purvis, over the last two years, has turned out to be a solid receiver for us and a great defensive player,” Hastings said. “He’s one of those players that can play on either side. He also had a big return against Berry that went 100 yards for a touchdown. That was a big play in that game.”

Dora’s Smoot, a 6-2, 230-pound, junior defensive lineman, was a first-team selection after wreaking havoc on opposing offenses all season for coach Johnny Wright’s squad.

Smoot, who was the Daily Mountain Eagle’s Defensive Player of the Week twice, had 139 tackles, including 58 tackles for loss and a Class 4A high 21 sacks. He also caused four fumbles and blocked two punts.

Lynn seniors Meeks and Cagle were clear selections in Class 1A.

Meeks (5-10, 180) set two career state records during the season — offensive yards and all-purpose yards — while piling up 34 total touchdowns during his senior season.

Lynn’s offense relied on Meeks’ arm. He threw an average of 27 passes per game. He finished the year with 2,277 passing yards with 25 touchdowns and six interceptions. Meeks rushed another 132 times for 952 yards and nine scores.

Cagle (6-2, 172) was the only player in the state this season to amass 100 receptions. He also led the state with 1,480 receiving yards and was tied for second in the state with 17 touchdown receptions.

Another five area players were honorable mention selections on the team: Walker senior linebacker Austin Mansell, Corner senior linebacker Jake Averhart, Oakman senior receiver Deontre Muse, Oakman senior offensive lineman Zach Fondren and Addison senior linebacker Franky Melson.
