Anderson County High School juniors Ross Cox and Darius Harvey were named honorable mention selections on The Courier-Journal all-state football team.


The prestigious team, selected by the state's coaches, was announced on Christmas Day.

Cox was listed as a wide receiver. He caught 51 passes for 1,153 yards and 13 touchdowns.

 He also caught a school record 93-yard scoring catch against Shelby County and equaled a school record with 10 catches against West Jessamine. Cox also saw action at running back and safety, where he intercepted five passes.

Harvey, a powerful tackle, was selected for his work as an offensive lineman. He was often clearing the way for Bearcat running backs or providing protection for passers. As a defensive lineman, he was in on 20 tackles and credited with 3.5 tackles for a loss.

The team, honored in the state's largest newspaper, is generally considered the most prestigious of the all-state teams. Coaches are not allowed to vote for their own players.
