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 McAllen Memorial RB Trevor Speights, the Week Six winner of the Gridiron Legends Texas High School Player of the Week!
He may only be a freshman, but Speights played like a veteran in McAllen Memorial's win over rival McAllen Rowe, running for 294 yards and three touchdowns to pace the Mustangs to a critical District 31-5A victory.
