Estacado Running Back Named as Mr. Texas Football Semifinalist
Jermiah Dobbins is having an incredible season for the undefeated Estacado Matadors. He's rushed for 1,939 yards and has 15 touchdowns in 9 games, and is poised to take the Matadors deep into the playoffs this season.
Dobbins is now being recognized for his accomplishments, being named a semifinalist for Mr. Texas Football, presented by Wells Fargo and awarded by texasfootball.com.
The award is given annually to the most outstanding high school football player in the state of Texas. The finalists will be named on December 6th, 2019, at which point the voting will be turned over to the fans.
The winner is then announced at the Texas Bowl, which will be played at NRG Stadium in Houston on December 27th, 2019.
Former winners of Mr. Texas Football include two-time winner and current Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray, who won in 2013 and 2014, and Texas Tech QB Jett Duffey in 2015. Oklahoma State's Spenser Sanders won in 2017, and Jaquizz Rogers won the inaugural award back in 2007.
