2014 LSG 3A Team of the Year

2014 Lone Star Gridiron
Class 3A Team of the Year

txhsfbTOY2014This is the first year for Lone Star Gridiron to award a Team of the Year in each class.  This award is not a reflection of which was the best performing team or who is the most talented - that is decided in the playoffs and the State Championship game.  It is a reflection on which team was the best 'story.'  It can be overcoming odds.  It can be showing 'heart.' It can be doing the unexpected.  It is more than who the most talented athletes.

Winner: Cameron Yoe

Cameron Yoe secured a record of 12-4 for the 2014 season, which led the Yoemen to their third consecutive state championship win.
