Presenting the 2019 All-Clovis Football Team

They played all season with passion and purpose, representing their school every week on the field football and sharing a bond not easily broken. Highlighting 23 total athletes, the Clovis Sports Report is proud to announce the inaugural 2019 All-Clovis Football Team, a special group of young men who laid it all out on the line every time they took the field. 

Clovis Sports Report founder Paul Meadors and Austin Kemp were on hand to watch games and practices from August to December, on the sidelines, watching film and interacting with coaches and the players themselves. We feel these are the top 23 players that proved the best at their position. 

The team includes a 5-star running back headed to the University of Georgia, a talented junior defensive end with multiple D-1 offers, a coach’s son and pair teammates who patrolled their linebacking positions side-by-side.
