The Atlanta Journal-Constitution released its All-State Football Teams for each classification, and it was no surprise that the Class AAA state champion Calhoun Yellow Jackets were represented among the selections.

Calhoun senior linebacker Bailey Lester was named the Class AAA Defensive Player of the year after an incredible individual season in which he recorded 124 tackles, 15 tackles-for-loss, 12 sacks and one fumble recovery.

Calhoun head coach Hal Lamb was also named the Class AAA Coach of the Year, and JC Fuller (Sr., OL) and Brannon Spector (Jr., DB) were named to the First-Team Offense and First-Team Defense, respectively.

Calhoun’s Gavin Gray (Jr., QB) earned an Honorable Mention nod.
