For Ray High School quarterback, Brad Breckenridge, his Ford Built Tough Texas Player of the Week Award he received Thursday was the perfect ending to a memorable season.
“It’s just an incredible way to end my senior season,” Breckenridge said.
Breckenridge was dominant this season. After overcoming injuries in his previous two years, Breckenridge piled up 44 touchdowns — 28 passing and 16 rushing — and ran away with the District 15-5A MVP.
He punctuated his season with a monster final game of the regular season to earn the Week 11 award. He passed for 309 yards and four touchdowns rushed for 162 yards and five more scores in the Texans’ wild 63-49 win over Victoria West that clinched a playoff berth for Ray.
Ray coach Craig Charlton has been all over Texas coaching football. He has high praise for his quarterback.
“I’ve been doing this for 25 years and he is the best young man as a quarterback that I’ve ever been around,” Charlton said.
Breckenridge ends his great career at Ray High School and he only has one thing on his mind when it comes to future plans.
“For sure college football,” Breckenridge told me. “I’m kind of still shaking out where to go but I don’t think I can go any other way.”
Breckenridge led the Texans to a 7-5 record, which included winning the final three games of the season to earn their first playoff birth since 2013.
