All-County Football 2023: All-County Defense

Published 10:30 am Monday, December 25, 2023

The 2023 high school football season was an outstanding one for Warren County’s teams. Warren Central and Porter’s Chapel Academy both won district championships, and Vicksburg High also reached the playoffs for the fourth year in a row.

Individually, more than a dozen players were named to all-state teams, MHSAA or MAIS all-star teams, or both. A number of them also set school and county records or reached career statistical milestones.

Today we celebrate all of their accomplishments by unveiling the 2023 Vicksburg Post All-County defensive team for Warren County. The 15-man squad is led by Defensive Player of the Year Julien Demby. The linebacker from Warren Central led the county with 117 tackles, to go along with 28 tackles for loss and five interceptions. He was a first-team MHSAA Class 6A All-State selection and played in the Mississippi-Alabama All-Star Game.
