Dave Campbell's Texas Football, along with both Wrangler Retro and Cavenders, is proud to give a weekly Player of the Week award to the most deserving high schooler in the state of Texas. Every Monday at noon, TexasFootball.com will announce ten candidates for that week's award, based on the previous week's on-field performance. Fans can vote online at TexasFootball.com's online poll, where you can see the current vote standings. Voting will close at noon each Friday, with the winner being announced shortly afterward. The award will be given every week through Week 11. Check this page every week to view the full list of ten candidates and the details of their most recent performance.
This season, each weekly winner will be automatically nominated for the Player of the Year award, presented with Cavenders, Wrangler Retro and the Texas Bowl. Those candidates will be announced in Week 13, and voting for that award will continue until the end of the high school season.
Congratulations to Stephenville WR Jared Stidham, the Week One winner of the Gridiron Legends Texas High School Player of the Week!
In a big bounceback win for the Yellow Jackets, Stephenville's star wide receiver was every bit worth the hype, hauling in 11 catches for 172 yards and two scores in his team's win over three-time defending 4A state champ Aledo.
Congratulations to Jared and Stephenville High School!
