Football: LA doesn’t earn any postseason nods

Aztec’s Adam Lucero was named the top quarterback of Class 4A for 2011.
Lucero was among six players from the 4A champion Aztec Tiger team that was named first team All-State. The All-State teams were announced Tuesday by the New Mexico High School Coaches Association.
No one from the Los Alamos Hilltoppers was selected for either the first or second teams this season.
Lucero led Aztec to its first-ever football title, with the Tigers upsetting the Goddard Rockets in the championship game.
Aztec, Goddard and Valencia, which were among the top teams in the state most of the season, dominated the first team selections. No player from District 2-4A was picked for All-State honors this season.
In Class 5A, Cleveland’s Cole Gautsche, who recently committed to play for the University of New Mexico next year, was the All-State first team quarterback.
Los Alamos finished 6-5 this season, won the District 2-4A championship and advanced to the 4A playoffs before being knocked out in the first round at Los Lunas.
