DALLAS – Dave Campbell’s Texas Football has partnered with Whataburger to honor the best and brightest stars in Texas high school football with the 2019 Whataburger Super Team. Starting in August, Dave Campbell’s Texas Football will give fans from across Texas the opportunity to nominate players from their community to be named to the final ballot of 300 that will be announced in November. From there, the real competition begins. Voting will be hosted on TexasFootball.com from November-December putting the pressure on the fans and local community to will their player to the top for a chance to receive one of the forty (40) coveted spots on the Whataburger Super Team.
Former Super Team winners include Andrew Luck (Stratford HS, Indianapolis Colts), Garrett Gilbert (Lake Travis HS, Carolina Panthers), Malcom Brown (Brenham HS, Los Angeles Rams), Jonathan Gray (Aledo HS, NFL), Kyler Murray (Allen HS, OU), Jamal Adams (Hebron HS, New York Jets) and Malik Jefferson (Mesquite Poteet HS, Cincinnati Bengals).
“There’s nothing like high school football this time of year in Texas and Whataburger is proud to be a part of post-game rituals across the state,” said Whataburger Vice President of Marketing and Innovation Rich Scheffler. “Some of our biggest fans bring some of the best talent under the Friday night lights and we’re looking forward to seeing them compete for a spot on this year’s Whataburger Super Team.”
Fans, coaches and players will nominate and vote during the high school season by going to TexasFootball.com. Updates will be announced online on TexasFootball.com, live on Texas Football Today and across each Whataburger Super Team social media pages – www.facebook.com/whatasuperteam and www.twitter.com/whatasuperteam.

Whataburger has focused on its fresh, made-to-order burgers and friendly customer service since 1950 when Harman Dobson opened the first Whataburger as a small roadside burger stand in Corpus Christi, Texas. Dobson gave his restaurant a name he hoped to hear customers say every time they took a bite of his made-to-order burgers: “What a burger!” Within the first week, people lined up around the block for his 25 cent, 100 percent beef burgers served on five-inch buns. Today, the company is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, with more than 820 locations in 10 states with sales of more than $2 billion annually. Visit www.whataburger.com for more information.
