Refugio's Lynx Hawthorne has been named the Class 2A Player of the Year by Lone Star Gridiron.
Hawthorne started at wide receiver and helped lead the Bobcats to a 15-0 record and Class 2A, Division II state championship.
Hawthorne had 72 receptions for 1,777 yards and 23 touchdowns.
He was also selected as the Class 2A Player of the Year by Dave Campbell's Texas Football magazine.
"He has explosive speed, quickness and agility," Refugio coach Jason Herring told Lone Star Gridiron. "There might be nights when he got 300 yards and four touchdowns and you couldn't tell by the way he acted.
"He was the ultimate team player and the first to credit everyone around him. Way beyond his physical abilities, he is a gentleman, a great young man that anybody would be proud for their daughter to marry."
Hawthorne graduated from Refugio at midterm and is currently enrolled at Baylor, where he received a football scholarship.
