Rockport-Fulton High School Pirate football players Cruz Estrada and Chris Darnold were recently named to the Associated Press Sports Editors Class 4A All-State team Tuesday, Dec. 17.

Estrada was the only 4A player in the Coastal Bend area that was named to either the first or second team. He was named to the second team as an offensive lineman. Estrada was a stalwart on the Pirates line at right tackle.

Darnold was selected as an honorable mention to the all-state team as a linebacker. The Pirates’ outside linebacker was the heart of a stingy defense in 2019. Darnold was also a key special teams contributor, blocking two kicks. He recorded, (up to the area round game against Hondo) 100 total tackles, 12 tackles for loss, four fumble recoveries, three sacks, and one interception.
