Franklin's Hernandez Named Texas Player of the Week

High School Football

POSTED: Thursday, October 25, 2012 - 10:16pm

UPDATED: Friday, October 26, 2012 - 12:04am

Six Texas high school football stars are being recognized as the Built Ford Tough Texas High School Football Players of the Week for Week 7.

These athletes join a long list of players recognized for outstanding efforts on and off the field. They are now among the likes of Heisman Trophy winner and Washington Redskins starting quarterback Robert Griffin III and Atlanta Falcons running back Quizz Rodgers. Other past winners include Texas A&M starting quarterback Johnny Manziel, Nebraska's Big 10 Player of the Year candidate Rex Burkhead, SMU's starting quarterback Garrett Gilbert, and the nation's most-watched freshman running back Johnathan Gray of UT, the only two-time Built Ford Tough Texas HS Football Player of the Year.

This is the seventh consecutive year that Ford Motor Company is recognizing six outstanding student-athletes each week during the 2012 season. The Built Ford Tough Texas High School Football Player of the Week program honors one student-athlete in six of the state’s athletic classifications every week during the high school football regular season for his accomplishments on and off the field.

CLASS 5-A: Marcos Hernandez, Sr., Running Back/Wide Receiver, El Paso Franklin:

The bigger the game, the bigger Marcos Hernandez plays. When El Paso’s top-ranked teams, Franklin and Americas, hooked up last Thursday, leadership in District 1-5A was on the line. That’s when the Cougars’ Hernandez put on a one-man show to move Franklin to 7-0 overall and 4-0 in the district. He wound up the night with five TDs and 352 all-purpose yards. The versatile 5-8, 170-pounder made the most of his 12 carries, rushing for 270 yards (nearly 23 yards per carry) and scoring from 2, 49, 89, and 89 yards. He also caught a simple screen pass in the fourth quarter and raced 76 yards for another score, capping a memorable 41-10 thumping of the Cougars’ crosstown rivals.

Marcos is a typical “slash” player—wide receiver/Wildcat QB/running back, though his hometown UTEP Miners want him as a pass-catcher. In the spring, you’ll find him sprinting for the track team. Owner of a brilliant 3.5 GPA (top 10% of his class), Hernandez is a regular on the Franklin honor roll and volunteers with Special Olympics.

“He’s extremely versatile and does whatever the coaching staff asks of him,” says Coach Daren Walker. “Marcos is physical for his size, shows tremendous lateral movement, and finishes his runs. He’s the absolute definition of a student-athlete. From a coaching standpoint, we simply need to get the ball in his hands.”
