The playoffs didn’t turn out how Minden had hoped, but the 2019 season was a huge success and the Tide have been rewarded with multiple All-District selections.
In a district loaded with talent under center, junior quarterback Trenton McLaughlin was selected District 1-4A First Team All-District after throwing for over 1500 yards and 15 touchdowns this season. McLaughlin and Huntington’s J’rell Joseph both made the first team as junior quarterbacks and should be back next year to compete for district MVP.
