Campos Ford Built Tough Player Week 5 (10-1-2015)
The Ford Motor Company announced the winners of the 2015 Built Ford Tough Texas High School Football Player of the Week trophy for week five. The Built Ford Tough gridiron heroes are honored for their performance on the field and their leadership off the field.
Each week of the regular high school football season will see a new winner in the sport’s six classifications, all with hopes of ultimately becoming the Built Ford Tough Texas High School Football Player of the Year.
The Mules are open but at halftime of this week’s games, the midpoint of the 11-week 2015 season will be reached. Now the action begins to heat up with most teams starting district action.
Ford Motor Company and each of the 234 Texas Ford Dealers are delighted to honor six student-athletes each week. These young men have excelled on the field, in the classroom, and in the community. The Built Ford Tough Texas High School Football Player of the Week Award for Week five in Class 3-A is Danny Campos.
Campos follows in the footsteps of the Mules' previous Ford Players of the Week. Garrett Riley, Wes Wood, Jared Skipworth, Cooper Washington and Caleb Wood have been named as a weekly winner. Riley and W. Wood were honored as Player of the Year.
Campos was an easy choice this week. The 6-2, 175-pound quarterback completed 16 of 22 passes for 432 yards and seven touchdowns (43, 12, 70, 41, 3, 77, and 51 yards) Friday night. He also led the number 10-ranked Mules on the ground with seven carries for 48 yards in a 58-7 rout of Kermit.
Campos is a solid 3.5 GPA student. His other activities include FFA, the stock show, and church work, among others. He continues to draw interest from local colleges and he wants to play on Saturdays.
Every Saturday morning at 8:30 AM (this week's show re-airs on Monday, October 5 at 2:00 PM and Wednesday, October 7, at 1:30 pm), be sure to dial up the Built Ford Tough High School Player of the Week TV show on Fox Sports Southwest to get the latest updates on the award winners.
