Editor’s Note: During the UIL State Championships at AT&T Stadium, TexasHSFootball will be presenting an MVP award of the game as voted on by the fans in partnership with VCRNow. For more information on how to vote, click here.
The largest school in the state is back on top of the Texas high school football world. The Allen Eagles used a strong ground-and-pound rushing attack to take down the defending state champion Lake Travis Cavaliers 35-33 in the Class 6A Division I state championship.
Allen finished with 289 yards rushing on the day, with the bulk of them coming from senior running back Brock Sturges. The Arizona State-bound star finished Saturday’s championship game with 176 yards on 32 carries and three touchdowns.
His efforts earned him the TexasHSFootball Most Valuable Player of the Game presented by VCRNow.
Sturges was able to take advantage of the Allen defense forcing two Lake Travis turnovers early in the game, rushing for touchdowns of 13 and three yards respectively in the first quarter.
That said, when the game was on the line, Sturges ran for 38 yards on the final possession off of an Allen interception to seal the deal on the program’s fifth state title in the last decade.
As the winner of the MVP award, Sturges will receive a commemorative custom MVP football, a full scholarship to the Football University Camp of their choice as well as an image collage.
