Calallen saw his historic playoff run in girls’ football and ended with a win just before a state championship with a 6-0 loss to Midlothian Heritage.

Gonzalo Alvarez Alonso, Sr., London

Not only has London soared to heights behind Alonso this season that haven’t been seen at school this season, but also in 2021 that Corpus Christi Boys’ soccer teams have seldom reached. The Pirates reached the regional tournament and became the ninth Corpus Christi team to ever reach the state’s Sweet 16 in boys’ football. The extremely accomplished ball handler led the pirates in goals (38) and assists (25) and his technical skills made him difficult to defend. The attacking mid was named District 29-3A MVP.
