WICHITA FALLS, TX (RNN Texoma) - Although the Hirschi Huskies didn’t make it as far as they wanted, one player still stood out among the rest.

TCU commit Daimarqua Foster is on the short list for the most prestigious award in Texas high school football.

Foster was named a semifinalists for the Mr. Texas Football player of the year.

He ran 2,800 yards and 44 touchdowns in his senior season, just shy of back to back 3,000-yard seasons.

To put this award into perspective, the 2018 Heisman trophy winner, Kyler Murray, won this award twice while at Allen.

Other winners include Johnny Manziel in 2010, Spencer Sanders, a redshirt freshman at Oklahoma State last year and Jett Duffey, a quarterback at Texas Tech in 2015.

Fans can vote for Foster on texasfootball.com.

The winner will be announced next Monday.
