|Luckett, Witcher make all-region grid teams|
Friday, December 7, 2012
Franklin County offensive lineman Kris Luckett has earned second team Group AAA All-Northwest Region accolades for the 2012 season in a vote of the region's head football coaches.
Luckett, a tackle and a first team All-Western Valley District selection, anchored an offensive line that helped generate 3,044 yards (5.5-yard average on 552 plays) of offense with 2,544 yards of that total coming via the rush.
FCHS accumulated 154 first downs and scored 259 points, an average of 25.9 per game during a 4-6 (1-3 in the WVD) campaign.
Luckett was the only FCHS player selected to either the first or second team by the coaches, both of which are comprised of players from Division 5 and Division 6 schools.
Return specialist Ray Witcher was one of two return specialist who earned second team All-Northwest Region honors in voting by Virginia Preps.
Witcher returned 10 kickoffs for 328 yards (a 32.8-yard-average). His 98-yard return for a touchdown in the Eagles' 31-28 overtime loss to Group AA Christiansburg established a new school record.
