Class 3-A: Tyler Rodriguez, Senior, Quarterback, Bonham
This was the third straight win for the Bonham Warriors, even though a rain delay forced the game into 10-minute quarters. Quarterback Tyler Rodriguez had a total of 15-19 completions-attempts, 263 yards passing, seven touchdown passes, 81 yards rushing and one touchdown rush.
Bonham High School defeated Dallas Hillcrest Panthers 67-34, despite being in a full classification below the opponent.
“Tyler is the definition of complete team player,” said Head Coach John Fish. “He is a captain, ultimate leader. Does all the little things right. Did not miss a single Summer workout. Takes all AP classes. His leadership is completely changing the culture and dynamic of our locker room.”
