3 football players make all-area

Three Davie football players made the Winston-Salem Journal’s all-area team: Markel Summers, Elijah Chaffin and Ty Miller.

While Summers and Chaffin made first team offense and defense, respectively, Miller was selected second team offense. The 6-2 senior quarterback threw for 3,131 yards and 30 TDs and added 10 rushing scores. He threw a school-record seven TD passes in a win over West Rowan. He has a 4.31 grade-point average.
