Hosey rushed for 1,460 yards and 14 touchdowns in his first season starting. In a September victory over McKinney North, Hosey rushed for 406 yards and four touchdowns on 37 carries.

Texan offensive lineman Darrell Simpson was an AP all-state honorable mention. Simpson signed with the University of Oklahoma on Thursday, notching 29 pancake blocks while grading out at 91 percent.

Simpson helped the Northwest offense average 483 yards per game this season, only allowing a handful of sacks throughout his career.
