Kooper Boatwright in a game from 2017.

Two Alex players received recognition from VYPE Oklahoma. The players were named to the preseason Class B All-VYPE team.

Senior Doc Harrington was named to the team as a linebacker. Harrington is coming off of a year in which he surpassed 70 tackles (solo and assisted), according to stats provided by Alex. He also had multiple sacks, tackles for loss and fumble recoveries.

The other player named to the All-VYPE team was Kooper Boatwright. Boatwright was named to the team as an athlete, but he received more recognition from the magazine at the quarterback position.

Boatwright was also selected as a top-100 player by the publication. He is coming off of a season in which he nearly reached the 1,400-yard passing mark. He also threw for more than 20 touchdowns and rushed for double-digit touchdowns as well, per the provided stats.

The Longhorns went 8-5 last season, advancing to the Class B quarterfinals. Alex knocked off Central High and Seiling in the playoffs before losing to Depew.
