Who made the All-Bay County high school football teams? (2024)

Banji BamidelePanama City News Herald

Bay County is filled with talented high school football players and teams who shined this past season.

Bozeman led the way with an undefeated regular season and a program and county-best 12-1 record. The Bucks, along with Mosley, reached the state playoffs.

Here's who county coaches and the News-Herald are honoring as all-county players for the 2023 season.

Offensive Player of the Year: Peyton Gay, Bozeman

Constantly overlooked Bozeman quarterback Peyton Gay aimed to cement his name in the Bay County history books and he did so efficiently.

The 5-foot-11 senior threw for 2,665 yards and 35 touchdowns to just nine interceptions. He added 777 yards and five scores on the ground.

"This year we had chemistry where I trust you, you trust me and we got the job done," Gay said. "My mindset was different this year and I had something to prove."

Gay said after battling a rare knee injury as a junior, an avulsion fracture of the tibial tuberosity, he came back fearless, with nothing to lose and everything to gain.

One shining moment came in a 25-24 thriller over Chipley. Gay led the way with two touchdowns and set up kicker Chance Jenkins for the game-winning field goal.

"We broke their 11-game home win streak and that win made us a dominant team to beat," Gay said. "I thrive under pressure and with the game on the line I make plays."

Defensive Player of the Year: Trevor Oswald, Bozeman

Trevor Oswald is the epitome of consistency from the linebacker position. In his junior season, Oswald totaled 111 tackles and nine tackles for los. He followed it up his senior year with 180 tackles, five sacks and 18 TFL's.

"I have always had great coaching, who taught me what to do, how to do it and how to do it good," Oswald said. "I am selfless and like to set stuff up for other people so they can get the hit."

The senior credits offseason weightlifting as a major part of what makes him different. Oswald is a state-champion weightlifter with a max bench of 355 pounds and a clean and jerk of 330.

Oswald said he knew the matchup against Chipley was a turning point for the season because the defense answered when called upon and was able to get stops against a tough opponent.
