Joining Holcomb on the all-region squad for the Eagles were senior tight end/defensive end Rhyan Barrett, senior wide receiver/defensive back Jake Hendricks, senior athlete/defensive back Parker Law, junior offensive/defensive linemen AJ Gant and Caleb Green, junior linebacker Caiden Hawkins, sophomore offensive/defensive lineman JD Martin and freshman running back Legion McCrary.
