Fourteen Brentwood High School students received post-season honors recently for their performance in football, volleyball and boys’ soccer.

Nine members of the BHS football team were named to the All-District 3 first team. Three BHS volleyball team members were named to the All-South Central Athletic Association Conference (SCAAC) first and second teams. Two Brentwood soccer players were also named to the All-SCAAC first and second teams.

The BHS football team won the Class 2, District 3 championship game so it’s no wonder the Eagles are well represented on the all-district team. David Rivera was named to both the first team offense and the first team defense. Tyler Jones and Danny Lynch were named to the first team defense and received honorable mentions for their offensive play.

Boys’ Soccer

Fourteen of the 22 members of the 2011 BHS soccer team were either freshmen or sophomores. So perhaps it’s fitting that the Eagles’ only first team all-conference selection is a sophomore.

“He’s just a phenomenal one-v-one defender,” head coach Cory Grage said of sweeper Dustin Sneed. “He’s got lightning fast feet and he can always get back.”

Brentwood’s only other all-league selection was its leading scorer, forward Qais Noori.

It was a rebuilding season for the Eagles as they finished 3-15 overall and 2-7 (fifth place) in the six-team conference.
