Telford is joined on the All-Region First Team by running back Jaden Morgan, wide receiver Que Carothers, linebacker Walker Tedford, defensive back Saveon Freeman and offensive linemen Donalvin Wilson and Jamerious Jenkins.

Six Blue Devils were also selected to the All-Region Second Team, as wide receiver Elijah White, offensive lineman Jack Woodard, athlete Brayden Buford, linebacker Will Embry, defensive back Daylon Vaughn and punter Andrew Paysinger all earned Second Team honors.

Offensive lineman Jason Carothers and defensive linemen Brandon Turner and Will Sanford were selected as honorable mentions.
