2018 All-Central Texas High School Football Team
The 2018 high school football season in Central Texas was filled with record-breaking performances, amazing moments and memories, exhilarating comeback wins and gut-wrenching last-second losses. We discovered new up-and-coming stars blended in with players who have staked their claim among the best we’ve ever watched. And, in the end it was a season that included state championship victories for La Vega, Mart and Grandview.
In what is almost an impossible task, the staff at ESPN-Central Texas took on the project of creating an All-Central Texas High School Football Team. A team made up of every classification, Six-Man to Class 6-A, public and private schools from nearly 100-programs we covered on an every week basis.
We start the release of our team with those players who shined the brightest under the Friday Night Lights.

This is my 38th-year covering Texas High School Football and I’m continually blown away by how the torch of greatness is passed on from one year to the next. And, I’m a firm believer in recognizing all three phases of the game, offense, defense and special teams.
Of course there will be the playmakers on offense and defense, the stars who earn the weekly and annual awards, but what about those who are far too often overlooked, including a deep snapper on field goals and extra points or the dirty work of a player who covers on kick and punt returns. And, so we hope you enjoy as we honor the elite of the elite in Central Texas.

In the end and as I mentioned from the start, it’s a nearly impossible task to breakdown dozens upon dozens of individual players and select the best. But, we took this project very seriously, contacting every single program until a coach responded with a nomination or more, or we were told they had no one to nominate from the 2018 season. And, we compiled every player nominated for every position and then some.
The entire staff at ESPN-Central Texas voted and based on overall votes and tabulations, we selected the overall 1st and 2nd-Teams. But, it would be a disservice to stop there because there are so many young men who earned their name on this team in some way. And, with that, here are those who were nominated for what they accomplished during the 2018 football season.
