Christian Carter, Lee's Summit North
Carter was one of the catalyst for Lee's Summit North's resurgence, leading the Broncos at quarterback to the Suburban Gold league title and the top district seed. Carter rushed for 808 yards and 14 scores, and threw for 546 yards and six scores in nine games before a season-ending injury before the playoffs started. Carter was selected as the Offensive Player of the Year in the Suburban Gold in 2018.

Jonas Bennett, Odessa
Bennett was a major cog for Odessa on both sides of the ball, helping the Bulldogs to a 12-0 start. The Missouri Western commit rushed for 517 yards and 12 scores, as well as 57 receptions for 971 yards and 16 touchdowns. Defensively, Bennett notched 52 tackles as a defensive back, along with three interceptions.
Bennett earned first team on offense and defensive in league, and second-team all-state in Missouri Class 3.

Keenan Garber, Free State
Depending where you look, Garber was a first-team all-state selection at wide receiver (814 yards), with his 17 receiving TDs second in the Metro - or at defensive back with four interceptions - 2 returned for TDs. Garber also scored three rushing TDs for 22 total. Either way, he was a major reason for Free State's 10-1 season, and will be a factor ahead as he signed with K-State in December.

Agnew-Whitten did just about everything Bishop Miege asked the junior to do. He subbed in at running back and scored six touchdowns. Agnew-Whitten also scored on a punt return - and passed for touchdown as well. Defensively, Agnew-Whitten picked off five interceptions and one recovered fumble for the Stags - all in just 7 games before he suffered a season-ending injury midway through the year at Aquinas.
