Following a 3-7 season that saw competitive improvement, the Goose Creek Memorial Patriots football team saw many of their players reap the benefits.

The District 9-5A I All-District Football team was released last week and 15 Patriots have earned post-season accolades – nine from the defensive side of the ball.

Brice Lane (running back), Riley Banks (offensive lineman), Holden Hill (cornerback) and Bryce Johnston (inside linebacker) led the way earing First Team recognition.

Terry Alfred (defensive tackle), Jalen Davis (wide receiver), Jaylon Thompson (wide receiver), Auriel Hector (cornerback), Richie Rodney (defensive end), Joshua Tarver (defensive end), Peter Semien (inside receiver), Jayson Gipson (outside linebacker), Braeden Paige (offensive lineman), Reggie Holmes (safety) and Amauri Norris (safety) also earned second team accolades.

“It is always great to see your kids being voted by the opposing coaches for their play,” GCM head coach Shannon Carter said. “We represented quite well and it is a testament to the kids play for these accolades.  We had 3 first team selections and 12 2nd team selections and 6 received honorable mention.  Of our 15 1st and 2nd team selections we will have 10 of those kids returning.”
