Reporter/Bill Martin Like John Jentsch before him, Dominique Messer has proven to rise to the top in two different sports.

Milano’s Messer was named to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches All-State team after being named first-team All-State in football this past season.

Former Milano star Jentsch was awarded the double

Messer led the Eagles to a 27-6 record and the regional finals for the second straight season where they again fell to neighbor Mumford.

The 6-foot-4 Messer—who has signed to play football at West Texas A&M—averaged 17.9 points per game, 13 rebounds, 3.3 steals and 2.8 blocks.

Messer’s teammate Toby Sanders was named to the all-regional team.

Milano resident and Mumford star Aubrie King was chosen the Class A player of the year after leading the Mustangs to a 39-1 record and into the state championship game where they lost to Triple A Academy.

The 6-foot-6 King nearly averaged a triple- double in 2013, putting up 15.4 points, 10.8 rebounds and 8.1 assists from his point guard position.

King is a three-time All-State selection and went over the 2,000-point career mark in the state tournament.

Teammate LaKendrick Hyson was also named to the first-team.

District 25A

King and Hyson were named co-MVP’s of the league, while Messer was tabbed as the defensive player of the year.

Sanders, along with Jacob Willingham, David Jentsch and Jordan Millar were named firstteam all-district.

Efrain Flores and Jonathon Reyes were named homnorable mention.

Mumford’s Chris Sodek was named the district coach of the year.
