All Basin Offense

Narrowing down the quarterback selections did not come easy, and it should come as no surprise that each one had 1,000-yard passing seasons.  Four of these talented athletes were successful to add 1,000-yard rushing efforts to an already stellar throwing yardage.  Six of our running backs also achieved the 1,000-yard rushing milestone.

All of our receivers recorded 600+ yards, with Odessa High’s Ivan Carreon joining the 1,000-yard Club courtesy of 77 receptions.  Permian’s JaQuan Richardson was just 80 yards short of celebrating that achievement, and also added 472 yards in kick/punt returns.

– Wink’s Kanon Gibson (6-1, 190) tops the chart with his multi-talented skills.  Kanon threw for 3,009 yards including 37 touchdowns and rushed for 1,550 yards for another 21 TD’s to account for 4,559 total yards in 2021.  He also played defense for the Wildcats, where he had 160 solo tackles and four interceptions.  Gibson is just a junior, so expect big things from him next year as well.
Ryver Rodriguez (5-11, 185) just led Midland Christian to an appearance in the state championship game in TAPPS Division I. Ryver finished with 2,036 yards passing and 1,877 rushing for an impressive 3,913 total yards including 52 TD’s.  He has a very promising collegiate career ahead of him.  Smart athlete with a positive and well-grounded attitude.
– Sophomore Cheno Navarrette (5-10, 185) led Monahans to a 9-4 season.  He threw for 2,432 yards and rushed for another 1,232 to account for 3,664 yards and 35 touchdowns.  He’ll be back for the Loboes the next two years.
– Seminole’s Blake Flowers (6-1, 185) is a junior and also turned in solid numbers this season.  The pocket passer threw for 3,255 yards, which included 22 TD passes.  Flowers added another 352 yards on the ground.
Diego Cervantes (6-1, 185) recorded 2,556 through the air and added 479 yards rushing.  Diego racked up 34 touchdowns (21 passing / 13 rushing) for Odessa High.  Good size with proficient field awareness.
– Andrews junior EJ Lopez (6-1, 180) also spent the majority of his snaps setting up and slinging the rock downfield.  EJ threw for 2,655 yards with 25 TD’s, while adding another 117 ground yards.
Dominic Aguilar (5-10, 185) found more success on the ground than through the air in Fort Stockton’s run-based offense.  Dominic accounted for 3,007 yards (1,756 rushing and 1,251 passing) and put the ball in the endzone 36 times.
– As a sophomore, Marcos Davila (6-4, 200) led Legacy to a district champion title.  Marcos contributed 2,589 of his 2,653 yards through the air, and was responsible for 25 of the Rebels’ touchdowns.  In 2021, he was more than a handful for several of the opponent defenses that will be having to deal with him for two more years.
– Statistically short of a roster spot on the All Basin, but deserving to be included in this conversation for their contributions and outstanding play are:  Permian’s Rodney Hall, Crane’s Jaxon Willis, and Garden City’s Logan Seidenberger.  Hall (5-11, 170) posted solid numbers as a junior, passing for 1,667 yards and rushing for 827 more.  Willis (5-11, 175) threw for 1,338 yards while adding 652 ground yards.  Seidenberger (5-10, 170) also broke the 1,000-yard passing plateau with 1,337 and 28 TD’s.  He was absent of any rushing yardage due to 1A stipulations on quarterbacks running the ball… but Logan did deliver stout blocks when called upon.  All three are justifiably worthy.
Running Backs
– Legacy’s Makhilyn Young (5-10, 185) not only made his mark on the district, but tops all area ball carriers in 11-man football.  Young racked up 2,099 yards while scoring 36 touchdowns rushing, and he added another 389 yards receiving.  Would be of no surprise to chart a successful collegiate future.
– Out of Pecos, senior Ezekiel Saldana (5-9, 185) posted 2,149 ground yards while scoring 26 times.  Jorge Martinez (5-8, 165) followed closely behind with 1,069 yards rushing and crossing the goal line 12 times for Snyder.  He’s also a senior.
– McCamey’s Matthew Rosas (5-7, 160) proved to be a dual threat as both a runner and receiver.  He finished the season with 1,428 rushing yards and 475 receiving yards for a total of 1,903 yards with 30 TD’s as a junior.
– Coahoma’s Brysen Kerby (5-10, 180) and Garden City’s Sebastian Balcazar (5-8, 175), both in their senior year, complete our 1,000-yard rusher list.  Kerby had 1,318 yards with eight touchdowns, while Balcazar collected 1,110 yards and 17 TD’s.
– Midland High running back Zion Ward (5-7, 165) needed just 20 more yards to break the 1,000-yard plateau.  He finished the season with 980 yards and 10 touchdowns.
– Fort Stockton sophomore Corbin Luna (5-8, 195) and Garden City junior John Lopez (6-2, 185) made their team contributions to the tune of 972 and 885 yards, respectively.  Each successfully made it into the endzone seven times.
Wide Receivers
– Leading the receiving corp, hands-down Odessa High sophomore Ivan Carreon (6-6, 190) gave defensive backs fits all season.  Ivan hauled in 77 passes for 1,114 yards, but was surprisingly limited to seven touchdowns.  With a six to eight inch vertical advantage over most opposing DB’s, the district will have to contend with this rising talent two more years.
– Junior JaQuan Richardson (6-0, 180) was a big-play magnet for Permian, recording 840 yards from 30 catches… for a whopping 28 yards a reception average.  He also handled kick/punt returns which added another 472 yards to his tally.  He’s another talented young man that will be returning next season.
– Wink’s Braden Dunlap (5-10, 145) and Odessa High’s Terrance Samuel (5-10, 165) held their own all season.  Dunlap secured 53 passes from Gibson for 858 yards while scoring 14 TD’s.  Samuel finished with 720 yards from 50 catches including six touchdowns.
Chris Brazzell (6-4, 180) stood tall for Midland Legacy, recording 819 yards and 12 TD’s from 48 receptions.  Monahans’ Leonard Davis (6-2, 190) appears on both our offensive and defensive elite.  He logged 35 catches for 613 yards with 8 TD’s as a receiver, while picking off seven opponent passes and dishing out 29 solo tackles.  The potential for college ball is there for both of these seniors.
Stat numbers for our remaining standout receivers include:
– Seminole junior Cuyler Cramer (6-0, 170) – 59 catches for 670 yards with 4 TD’s
– Wink junior Jordan Tally (6-5, 175) – 31 catches for 633 yards with 7 touchdowns
– Midland Christian senior Sean Madison (6-1, 175) – 41 catches for 658 yards with 6 TD’s
– Examples of “dynamite in a small package” were no better exemplified than by Garden City’s Jordan Jones and Crane’s Oliver Cervantes in 2021.  Both stepped on to the field as 5-6, 140-pound utility players.  As a junior, Jones produced 667 yards rushing with 11 touchdowns and added 102 yards receiving. He also turned in 85 tackles and three interceptions on the defensive side of the ball in six-man action.  Cervantes hauled in 45 passes for 635 yards, which included nine TD’s during this senior season.  Defensively, he was credited with 14 solo tackles.  Not only did he handle kickoff returns but also made 34-of-39 of his PAT attempts.
– As a one-stop shop and Swiss army knife for Rankin, Braxxton Kirkland (6-0, 195) rushed for 2,874 yards (54 TD’s) on 214 carries and passed for another 464 yards (6 TD’s) on offense to dominate the six-man football scene.  Defensively, he had 42 solo tackles, 24 tackles for a loss, five sacks, and an interception.  
– Dual-threat Mason Walker (6-3, 200) utilized his size, speed, and hands to add to Garden City’s iron-man offensive attack.  Mason caught 24 passes for 411 yards and nine scores, and added another 254 ground yards as a junior playing on both sides of the ball.
