Staff • Feb 1, 2018 at 11:30 AM

Chilhowie took top honors when the Virginia High School Coaches Association announced its 2017 All-Region 1A football team.

Chilhowie juniors Greg Sanchez (running back) and Logan Branson (linebacker) were named the Offensive and Defensive Players of the Year, and the Warriors' Jeff Robinson and his staff earned Coach of the Year honors.

J.I. Burton had five players named to the first-team units. Raiders' receiver and defensive back Andrew Cavins was a first-team selection on both offense and defense, while teammates Taylor Mullins (defensive end), Mikey Culbertson (linebacker), Houston Thacker (punter) and Eric Fletcher (center) all received first-team honors.

Four Eastside Spartans - Jordan Rasnick (quarterback), Seth Boles (receiver) and Luke Lawson (receiver) on offense and Cole Harness (lineman) on defense - were also named to the first-team unit.

Here is the complete roster of first- and second-team selections, as well as those who received honorable mention:
