Lesley is one of many quarterbacks that did earn KTXS player of the week, despite countless outstanding performances in 2012.

In the Bulldogs 50-14 win over Lamesa, Lesley put up monster passing numbers. 22-28, 446 yards, and five touchdowns.

The senior finished the season with 2,013 passing yards, and 24 touchdown passes.

Clyde just missed out on a postseason berth, but Lesley’s great season does not go unnoticed by our eyes.


TOP 5 OF 2012

#5 Jalen Garza – Anson Jr.

The junior missed his entire sophomore season with a broken collarbone watching his team suffer a winless season

In 2012, Garza emerged as one of the most dynamic dual threats in the big country.

He scored 31 touchdowns on the season and led the tigers to their first playoff win in over a decade.


#4 Taylor Grant – Wylie Sr.

Taking about a first year starter who ended up being the district 4-3A MVP.

Over twenty three hundred yards passing, 31 touchdowns in the air, and 8 more scores on the ground.

Grant was one of the best game managers in the big country, and he was a beast on third and fourth down helping the bulldogs reach the state quarters

The senior now trades in his pads for golf clubs. He returns to the Wylie golf team as the #1 player. Expect to hear from Grant went the state golf championships come around.

#3 Evin Abbe – Abilene High Sr.

Abbe led the eagles to a 12-1 season after a stellar junior campaign. Another great game manager who is fearless in the pocket.

The senior overcame difficult obstacles throughout the Eagles’ run to the state quarters.

He kept the air attack going despite a season ending injury to Keevan Lucas.

The 2-5A offensive MVP tossed 29 touchdowns in his senior year, and passed Taylor Potts for most touchdown passes in school history.


#2 Dee Paul

Paul cemented himself as one of the greatest moguls of all time leading Munday to a state title in his senior year.

There were plenty of question marks about Paul’s arm strength and accuracy coming into the 2012 season. His passing efficiently was stellar in 2012, 22 touchdowns and just four picks all year long.
