But I commend the fans — they selected a fine group of athletes that represent the best of Texas high school football all across the state.”

In total, of the 40 Whataburger Super Team honorees, 29 of them are expected to play at the next level.

“Celebrating the standout players selected for the Whataburger Super Team builds on our long tradition of supporting high school football in our home state,” said Rich Scheffler, Whataburger’s Chief Marketing Officer. “We’re proud to be feeding the fandom again this year.”

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) and Jamal Adams (Hebron HS, New York Jets).

About Whataburger:

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 830 locations in 10 states with sales of more than $2 billion annually. Visit www.whataburger.com for more information.
