Guyer Holds Its Own on All-District Team

Guyer Holds Its Own on All-District Team

by Steve Gamel

The high school football season ended last month and postseason honors are rolling in. Guyer, in particular, was well represented when the District 6-6A All-District team was released.

While district champion Allen dominated this year’s list with 25 total selections, the Wildcats didn’t do so bad either while nabbing five first-team selections. Overall, Guyer had 11 players named first or second team in a season where its only loss in league play was to Allen.

Leading the charge for Guyer were running back Myron Mason, tight end Brian Polendey, offensive tackle John Lanz, linebacker Gio Williams and safety Bryce Jackson.
Mason, a senior, finished with 1,035 yards and 11 touchdowns while averaging just more than eight yards per carry. Mason fared well behind Lanz and a solid offensive line, which helped Guyer roll up nearly 4,000 rushing yards.

Guyer had two 1,000-yard rushers in Mason and sophomore phenom Noah Cain, who recently transferred to IMG Academy and is no longer a student at Guyer.

Polendey, who is committed to Miami, turned heads as more of a blocking tight end, but he still caught seven passes for 60 yards with one touchdown.
