A total of 80 players were named to the 2015 Lexington Herald-Leader All-City football teams, which were voted on by the seven city coaches — Frank Parks (Bryan Station), Sam Simpson (Henry Clay), Eric Shaw (Lafayette), Mark Perry (Lexington Catholic), Ethan Atchley (Lexington Christian), Paul Rains (Paul Laurence Dunbar) and Antoine Sims (Tates Creek).

Three players of the year were selected by the Herald-Leader based on their performance over the course of the season. This year’s Lexington Player of the Year is Mason Alstatt, a Lafayette senior. Alstatt, who has committed to Wofford as a safety, was dynamite in the Generals’ return game. He returned seven kickoffs or punts for touchdowns, including multiple returns of 80 yards or more.

Alstatt finished with 27 TDs on the season, 17 coming on the ground and three through the air. He was the Generals’ second-leading rusher with 1,558 yards on the season and also had 36 tackles on the year.

The Generals’ leading rusher was junior quarterback Walker Wood, the Herald-Leader’s Offensive Player of the Year. Wood, a University of Kentucky commit, threw 21 touchdowns and rushed for 22, finishing with 2,611 passing yards and 1,622 rushing yards. For the second straight season he finished in the top 15 in both catagories among Class 6A leaders.

Davonte Robinson was named Defensive Player of the Year. The UK commit led the Blue Devils with 100 tackles and had one interception on the season. He also scored seven touchdowns for Henry Clay this season — four on the ground, two on catches and one on a 91-yard return of the opening kickoff against Tates Creek in September.
