The award goes to the best offensive player with a connection to The Lone Star State. A player must be born in Texas, have played high school football in Texas, and/or play college football in Texas.
Foreman finished with 2,028 rushing yards, good enough for the second-most rushing yards in a single season in school history. After the Longhorns season ended in November, Foreman declared for the 2017 NFL Draft.
