The Daily Advertiser celebrated more than 300 Acadiana-area athletes, coaches and state champions during the fourth annual Sports Awards at the Cajundome.

An impressive year of high school sports was celebrated, including both first-time state champions and perennial powerhouses. We recognized academic achievements and athletic dominance. We were inspired by our Special Olympians and the coaches who lead our teams on and off the field. We celebrated everything that makes Acadiana sports special.

“What an honor to celebrate some of our area’s most talented and committed student athletes,” said Brett Blackledge, The Daily Advertiser’s editor. “They’ve worked hard to achieve this success, and they serve as an inspiration to all of us.”

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson served as guest speaker, and each award winner was able to meet Watson and take a photo with him.

Congratulations to all of our student-athletes, and we hope to see you back next year! Below are the award winners from Wednesday’s banquet:
