Lawrence Central's small quarterback made a big impact in the school's state title run.

On Friday, when Indiana's all-state football teams were announced, Drake Christen was the headliner on the Class 5A team.

Christen's teammates, offensive lineman Tim Gardner and linebacker Brandon Lee, also were named to the 5A team. Defensive back Nick Reese and offensive lineman Ruben Holcomb are Snider's representatives.

The Associated Press has chosen All-State teams with input from its voters, who compile the weekly polls from coaches who respond to inquiries from the voters and experts around the state.

First team picks for Class 4A champion Indianapolis Cathedral were running back Gino Gillum, lineman Collin Sandor and defensive back Stuart Stanley.
