Mason County had two players chosen to the 2019 Class AA football teams, as selected by members of the West Virginia Sports Writers Association.
Point Pleasant did not garner a first or second team selection this fall after missing the playoffs for the first time in a dozen years with a 4-4 overall mark.
The Big Blacks did, however, avoid their first losing season since 2007 and had a pair of two-way players selected at different levels of the list.
Senior Wyatt Stanley — a 6-foot-1, 242-pound lineman — was named to the special honorable mention squad, while classmate Jacob Muncy — a 6-3, 300-pound lineman — was chosen to the honorable mention list.
Stanley and Muncy were both first-time recipients of all-state honors in football.
The Big Blacks had previously landed seven selections in each of the last three seasons.
Fairmont senior lineman Zach Frazier was the first team captain on offense, while Bluefield lineman Sean Martin was the defensive first team captain.
Atticus Goodson of Independence was the second team captain on offense and Gage Patterson of Oak Glen was the second team defensive captain.
Roane County senior Alex Miller was an honorary selection to the first team offense.
