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 Shallowater RB Jarek Black, the Week Zero winner of the Gridiron Legends Texas High School Player of the Week!
The junior running back for the Mustangs was unstoppable in the season opener against Muleshoe, running for 311 yards and a whopping seven touchdowns to lead Shallowater to a 56-40 victory over the Mules.
