FRISCO, TX (KCBD) - Saturday evening, New Deal’s Jett Whitfield was named the Built Ford Tough 2A Player of the Year at a ceremony at The Star in Frisco, Texas.
Just a few days ago, Whitfield was presented the Built Ford Tough Player of the Week trophy for week 11 of the High School Football season.
Whitfield racked up 302 total yards and six total touchdowns that week in New Deal’s 61-19 win over rival No. 5 Sundown.
(A Player of the Week for each classification was chosen during all 11 weeks of the regular season, based on their performances on the field, in the classroom and in the community.)
Each player that won the Player of the Week awards were invited to Saturday’s Player of the Year Banquet, in Frisco.
Saturday night, Whitfield’s family told KCBD Sports that he had won the award.
New Deal finished the season 14-1, making it all the way to the 2A state title game.
