Highest-Rated: 2022 ATH Brenen Thompson (Spearman)
The 5-foot-10, 165-pounder is considering offers from Texas A&M, Texas and Oklahoma State. Thompson is one of the state's fastest prospects and his 10.38 speed is a definite difference-maker at the 3A level. Spearman checks in at No. 12 in the DCTF 3A rankings but a player of Thompson's caliber could make them a contender.
Top Underclassman: 2023 ATH Bryson Washington (Franklin)
The 6-foot-0, 185-pounder does a little bit of everything on the field for Franklin. While he is dangerous on offense with the football in his hands, his best college position may be safety. On the recruiting front, look for Washington to have another huge year and catch the eyes of more colleges.
MVP: 2022 ATH Hut Graham (Gunter)
The 6-foot-1, 175-pounder is committed to Texas Tech as a defensive athlete, but his play under center has Gunter as one of the favorites to lock down a state title. Graham was the 5-3A Division II Co-Offensive Newcomer of the Year in 2019 and was the 8-3A Division II Overall MVP in 2020.
