What a opening week to the Texas high school football season. There were a number of outstanding performances across the Metroplex, many closer-than-expected games, coaching debuts that impressed and, as always, upsets.
Honestly, there were too many great individual offensive performances to whittle down to just 10 across all classifications - UIL and private school.
In a weekly installment, we're asking for the fans to vote for the Sun & Ski Sports VYPE Fan Fav Week 1 Offensive Player of the Week.
