Bremond High School quarterback and future Texas A&M Aggie Roshauud Paul has been named the 2016 Mr. Texas Football winner. Paul will be honored on field in front of his future Aggie fans at the AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl on Wednesday, Dec. 28 at NRG Stadium.
Mr. Texas Football presented by Wells Fargo annually recognizes the high school player of the year in the state of Texas. The award, given in collaboration with Dave Campbell’s Texas Football, is voted on by fans, players and coaches throughout the state.
Paul, a 6’0”, 170-pound dual-threat quarterback led the Bremond Fighting Tigers to an undefeated and unforgettable season. This year alone the stellar quarterback has accounted for more than 2,000 yards passing, more than 2,000 yards rushing and scored a total of 68 touchdowns. After leading the Tigers to two consecutive state championships and being named Offensive MVP in both games, Paul is looking to win his third later this month and finish with a 47-0 record in his high school career.
In addition to being named Mr. Texas Football, Paul was awarded the Built Ford Tough Texas High School Football Player of the Week by Jason Ehlers of Glover Ford last month. Paul will continue his football career at Texas A&M when he joins the Aggies at the wide receiver position next season.
Past winners of the award include former NFL quarterback and 2012 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel (2010 winner, Kerrville Tivy), star Texas running back Johnathan Gray (2011 winner, Aledo), Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Jacquizz Rodgers (2007 winner, Lamar Consolidated) and former Oakland Raiders quarterback Garrett Gilbert (2008 winner, Lake Travis). Texas Tech quarterback Jett Duffey took home the award in 2015.
Fans, coaches and players voted for the state’s player of the week each week during the high school season by going to TexasFootball.com and AdvoCareTexasBowl.com. Each weekly winner was announced online on each of the voting sites and their social media pages. All of the weekly winners were nominated for the Player of the Year award.
The Mr. Texas Football Player of the Year is selected at the conclusion of the high school football season, based on votes cast throughout the season as well as editorial staff consideration. The votes were tabulated by Dave Campbell’s Texas Football.
