WESLACO - It's only appropriate that Roma running back Orly Solis wore number 1--because he became the Valley's first 1st-team AP All-Stater on Wedneday. Yes, Solis earned AP 4A 1st-team honors. He rushed for just over 2,450-yards and 29-TDs in 2013, and also set the Valley single-game rushing record with 460-yards versus Laredo Cigarroa in week 2. Meanwhile, seven Valley players earned 4A honorable mention props: offensive linemen Nick Garcia & David Martinez of Edcouch-Elsa; defensive lineman Robert Trevino of Edcouch-Elsa; Mercedes linebacker Carlos Acosta, Edcouch-Elsa linebacker Jacob Barrera; Edcouch-Elsa defensive back Diego Garcia and Mission Veterans defensive back Julian Meza.
