WEST JEFFERSON — Ashe County senior wide receiver Maison McNeill was named to the NCPreps 2A All-State preseason team on Tuesday.

According to MaxPreps stats, McNeill had 44 catches for 834 yards and 11 touchdowns last season playing a huge part in the most prolific passing attack in Husky history, and one of the best passing offenses in the state.

With Colin Ellis moving to quarterback and the graduation of Jacob Blevins, Carter Calhoun, Jacob Worley and Evan Owen, McNeill will be relied on even more for this year’s passing attack.

Mount Airy’s offensive lineman Gabriel King, Alleghany’s defensive lineman Avery Hash, East Surry athlete Blake Marion and Starmount athlete Brandon Prescott were all named to the preseason NCPreps 1A All-State team.
