Not only did Cuero win its first state title since 1987, but Texas signee Jordan Whittington had one of the greatest performances of all-time in Texas high school state championship history.
Whittington broke Eric Dickerson's 4A record logging 334 rushing yards in the 40-28 win against defending champs Pleasant Grove at AT&T Stadium. The future Longhorns receiver logged a total of 377 yards with six touchdowns, 11 tackles and one interception.
He was named the offensive and defensive MVP in the game.
Whittington's versatility is what Texas head coach Tom Herman talked about on National Signing Day. He plays all over the field and can line up as a wide receiver or quarterback in the wildcat formation.
Whittington will head to Austin in the winter and should make a bid for playing time next season.
As for Cuero, the Gobblers have struggled in recent memory to make it into the month of December, but this was quite the resilient bunch. Even on Friday, the team overcame a 21-7 deficit in the first half.
It took 31 yards, but Cuero is back on top as a state champion.
