Fourteen Raiders earn all-district honors

by | Dec 8, 2021 | Latest, Sports

The Wylie East football team had 14 players earn all-district honors for the 2021 season.

In Marcus Gold’s first year as coach, the Raiders won their first two games and finished with a 3-7 record. They went 1-5 in district play, defeating West Mesquite at home Oct. 26.

Juniors Terrell Washington Jr. and Robert Ngasoh earned a spot on the all-district first team.

In his second season as the Raiders’ starting quarterback, Washington Jr. was their leader on offense. He finished with a team-high 1,124 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns on 141 carries.

Washington Jr. also completed 26 of his 79 passes for 334 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions and finished with a team-high 297 receiving yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries. His best game of the season was against Nimitz where he scored a rushing, passing and a receiving touchdown in the win.

Ngasoh had big contributions on the defensive line, providing pressure at the line of scrimmage for a scrappy Raiders front seven. He finished the year with 28 total tackles and two sacks in nine games played. Ngasoh’s best game occurred against Tyler, recording two tackles and a sack.

Three players were selected to the all-district second team: senior offensive lineman Marcus Harbert, senior linebacker Tyler Jackson and junior defensive lineman Anthony James.
