The state of Texas has produced top flight football talent for decades. On any Friday night you can travel to any region in Texas and see a future college or NFL star. TexasHSfootball.com will construct the ultimate player. We will assemble the ultimate player, similar to building an ultimate player on Madden Football. Our super player will be made with attributes of native Texan star players.

Our construction will start with the perfect Quarterback.

Beginning in the late 90s and early 2000s, the quarterback position evolved into one where the QB needs to be mobile. Defenses are faster and more complex in today’s game and the offenses have nmade the adjustment. Here are the Perfect QB attributes, and the players we will construct our perfect quarterback with:

1. Mobility:

Vince Young (Houston Madison, University of Texas)
Young led the Longhorns to a National Championship in 2005. VY used his ability as a runner often to make big plays. Vince Young’s famous run for a TD to beat USC in the 2005-2006 Rose Bowl displayed his ability to elude tacklers and ultimately won the game for Texas.

2. Accuracy:

Drew Brees (Austin Westlake, Purdue University)
In 1996, Drew Brees led Austin Westlake to 5A Division II title. Brees accepted a scholarship to Purdue and lead the Boilermakers from 1997-2000. Brees was drafted in the 2nd round in 2001 by the San Diego Chargers. Traded to the New Orleans Saints in 2006, Brees won a Super Bowl in 2010 and was MVP of Super Bowl XLIV. Drew Brees is known for accuracy. During Brees’s future Hall of Fame career, his completion percentage was 66.7 percent and he holds NFL records with 7 TDS in one game, as well 54 consecutive games with a TD pass.

3. The “IT” Factor:

Johnny Manziel (Kerrville Tivy, Texas A&M)
Johnny Manziel earned his nickname “Johnny Football” by having the ability to improvise in the heat of battle. Manziel started for 3 years at Kerrville Tivy, before signing at Texas A&M in 2012. Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy in 2012. Johnny Manziel was electric!!! Manziel’s most famous play came against Albama in Tuscloosa, where he fumbled the snap and thew for TD on the same play. Johnny Football’s legend in Texas will never die.

 

The ultimate quarterback must be mobile, be accurate, and possess the “IT” factor to be dominant. With the attributes that we put together from each of these great Texas QB’s, we have constructed the ultimate player.
