Blake Reeve got his first chance to start at quarterback on the varsity level as a senior.
Reeve played quarterback at Cuero during his freshman season before moving to defense as a sophomore and junior after transferring to San Antonio Churchill.
Reeve returned to Cuero last season when his father, Travis, became the athletic director and head football coach.
The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Reeve earned first-team All-District 26-3A honors at quarterback and linebacker.
Reeve will get a chance to play quarterback again next season after committing to Henderson State, a NCAA Division II school in Arkadelphia, Ark.
"He was looking for a place where he could play quarterback," Travis Reeve said. "Henderson State runs an offense that throws the ball a lot. Historically, coach (Scott) Maxfield has had some high-octane offenses."
Reeve was also recruited by Texas A&M-Kingsville.
Reeve completed 144 of 234 passes for 1,674 yards and 12 touchdowns with 12 interceptions, while leading the Gobblers into the bi-district playoffs. He also ran for four touchdowns.
Reeve had 40 tackles, including 22 solo stops, 12 pass breakups and one interception on defense.
Reeve will make his commitment official Wednesday, which is national signing day.
