TXHSFB: The List of Talent in Texas Continues to Grow

There are a lot of talented athletes who never quite get the recognition they deserve so why not put together a list of players that we like and who we think you might be hearing about as their senior season comes around?

I enjoy watching film and I enjoy giving my own opinion to where I think some athletes might end up when their high school football careers come to an end. This list will continue to grow as the year grows older but this is where we’ll start.

Updated: June 24th 2017

If you haven’t noticed, this list has exploded since we first put it together a few months ago. We’re always open to critique and always up to hear about new names you’ve been watching the past few years around the Texas high school football landscape. We try to watch as much film as we can and look at as many players as we can. We hope these young men will get some college coaches at every level coming around and getting attention.
