The team also had five first team All-Conference picks and two second-team All-Conference honorees.
Morse (back/Lb) was All-Conference and All-State. He had 111 carries for 1,404 rushing yards, 10 touchdowns, 2,001 all-purpose yards and 65 tackles on defense. He returned 15 kickoffs for 573 yards and three touchdowns.
"Pound for pound, he is probably the toughest kid that I have ever coached," head coach Larry Treadway said.
Ryan Weir (running back/Lb) was chosen as first team All-Conference. He had 101 carries for 1,107 rushing yards, 10 touchdowns, 1,319 all-purpose yards and 90 tackles on defense. He had 12 catches for 123 yards.
"Ryan rarely came off the field, he's a great competitor," Treadway said.
Seth Chamblee (split end/safety) was chosen as first team All-Conference. Chamblee had 53 catches for 757 yards, seven touchdowns and 80 tackles on defense.
"Seth would do anything you asked him to do," Treadway said. "He blocked punts, returned punts and kickoffs and made some game saving tackles, but offensively he was our playmaker. It may be a long time before anybody catches 53 passes for the Bobcats again."
Jason Martin (center/tackle) was also chosen as first team All-Conference. He played both ways with 40 tackles on defense.
"Nobody brings a better attitude and work ethic than Jason Martin," Treadway said. "He set the bar high for future Bobcats in the weight room and on the field."
Tyler Meadors (quarterback) was the only junior to receive a first team All-Conference selection. He had 54 carries for 277 rushing yards, four touchdowns and 1,398 all-purpose yards. Meadors attempted 147 passes, completing 83 for 10 touchdowns and 1,166 yards. From his strong safety position, he had 55 tackles.
"Tyler made some great plays for us this year." Treadway said. "Nobody is harder on himself than Tyler is. He expects good things to happen and always leads by example."
Cody White and David Rogers were chosen as second team All-Conference. White had 19 catches for 214 yards and 46 tackles from his corner position, while Rogers started both ways for the Cats at tackle and made 50 tackles on defense.
This is the second All-Conference selection for Morse and Chamblee.
