The Associated Press released its 2014 all-state football team Monday. Observer-area players are well represented on the 24-man team.
East Lincoln quarterback Chazz Surratt, Lake Norman tight end Dylan Galbo, Charlotte Christian offensive lineman Brian Chaffin and Ardrey Kell offensive lineman Mason Veal made the all-state offensive team. Lake Norman QB Josh Ladowski, earlier named the N.C. Gatorade player of the year, made the team as an athlete.
On defense, Lincolnton’s Darian Roseboro, a defensive lineman, made the team along with Mallard Creek linebacker Josh Brown, Rocky River defensive back Jaire Alexander, Mallard Creek DB Amari Henderson, the Observer’s defensive player of the year, and South Point DB Tanner Muse.
Charlotte Country Day’s JD Dellinger was named all-state picker and South Meck’s AJ Elam was named all-state punter.
The team was voted on by a 20-member panel of state media reps.
