Every week, Ford Motor Company honors the Built Ford Tough Texas High School Players of the Week, and for this past weekend a couple of East Texans received the honor.

Lufkin quarterback Tyler Stubblefield received the 5A award and Center running back KJ Garrett took the honors in Class 3A. 

Stubblefield completed 29 of 43 passes for 562 yards and eight TDs in the Panthers overtime win over A&M Consolidated.

Garrett ran for 275 yards and 4 TDs in the Roughriders win over Tatum to help keep Center undefeated on the season.
