Mr. Texas Football

The Most Deserving High Schooler in the State.

Dave Campbell’s Texas Football, along with Wells Fargo and in conjunction with the Texas Bowl, is proud to present the Mr. Texas Football Player of the Year award to the most deserving high schooler in the state of Texas.

congratulations MARVIN MIMS, 2019 Mr. Texas Football winner

Mims, a 6-foot, 173-pound receiver, put together one of the most remarkable seasons in Texas high school football history, finishing with 117 catches for a national record 2,629 yards and 32 touchdowns. Aside from his national single-season receiving yards mark, Mims also finishes as the state's all-time leading receiver in a career, finishing with 5,485 yards - breaking the mark set by Jordan Shipley in 2003. His prolific talents fueled a Frisco Lone Star offense that averaged 49.2 points per game and pushed the Rangers into the Class 5A Division I state semifinals for just the second time in program history. Mims' gaudy numbers and stalwart leadership make him a worthy recipient of the 2019 Mr. Texas Football Player of the Year award.

Former winner of the award include 2018 Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray (2013-14, Allen), 2012 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel (2010, Kerrvill Tivy), former Texas Longhorns running back Johnathan Gray (2011, Aledo), Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Jacquizz Rodgers (2007, Lamar Consolidated), current Oklahoma State quarterback Spencer Sanders (2017 winner, Denton Ryan) and Carolina Panthers quarterback Garrett Gilbert (2008 winner, Lake Travis). Mission Veterans Memorial quarterback Landry Gilpin, now at Southwestern University, took home the honor in 2018. 

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.
