Minden High dominates 1-4A list with 20 players, two MVP’s

The Minden Crimson Tide enjoyed a highly-successful 2015 campaign, culminating with the announcement that a whopping 20 Crimson Tiders made first team, second team and honorable mention all-district.

The Tide finished the season with a record of 9-3 as district 1-4A runner up to Benton. Minden featured a prolific offensive attack and a smothering defense with a knack for causing turnovers. Such is evident in the all-district voting, as the Crimson Tide came away with the co-offensive MVP and defensive MVP of the district. Here is a look at who landed where.

They all put in a lot of effort this offseason and throughout the course of the year. I’m excited for them and excited that a lot of them are coming back next year.”
