Three senior Arp Tiger football players were rewarded for their outstanding work in the classroom Thursday.
The trio was named to the Texas High School Coaches Association and Coaches Education Foundation (THSCA) 2021 Academic All-State team.
Offensive and defensive lineman A.J. Arrington made the first team.
Offensive lineman Hayden Wright garnered second team honors.
Outside linebacker David Barocio received honorable mention.
Arrington, Wright, and Barocio were instrumental in the Tigers success on the field in 2021 as they returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2017. But the three of them also set an example for their teammates and peers outside of the gridiron.
Congratulations to them.
