Eastside junior running back Dallas Johnson was named to the All-Region 8-AAAAA First Team Offense on Thursday. Johnson played in all 13 of the Eagles' games, rushing for 1,466 yards and eight touchdowns on 190 carries. - Anthony Banks | The Covington News

Eastside’s first season in Region 8-AAAAA was a resounding success.

The Eagles went 5-1 in their new league, the only loss coming by one point on the road to eventual region champion Clarke Central. They went on to win a pair of games in the state playoffs as a No. 2 seed, reaching the quarterfinal round for the second time in three years.

Consequently, it comes as no surprise that All-Region 8-AAAAA Teams were littered with Eastside players when the list was announced Thursday morning.

Eastside earned 13 All-Region selections, trailing only Clarke Central’s total of 14. The Eagles who earned All-Region honors for offense, defense and special teams can be seen below:
