MALAKOFF — The post season awards continue to come in for Malakoff seniors Damontes Dowell and Israel Chavez.

Chavez finished out his high school career with a District 7-2A Co-Defensive Most Valuable Player award.

He is also a nominee on the Texas Sports Writers Class 2A All-State football team.

Chavez was named as a second team defensive lineman on the Athens Daily Review All Henderson County football team.

Chavez recorded 73 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 4 quarterback pressures, two sacks and one fumble recovery.

The Tigers were led offensively by senior Damontes Dowell — a 1,814 yard rusher with 31 touchdowns.

He was also named the District 7-2A Most Valuable Player for the football season.

Dowell is also a nominee on the Texas Sports Writers Class 2A All-State football team.
