Built Ford Tough

Beckville’s Ryan Harris (9) finds an opening on his way to big yardage against West Sabine. The Bearcat quarterback was nominated as the Built Ford Tough Player of the Week for his play in last week’s upset win over Tenaha.

Beckville’s Ryan Harris was among six winners announced on Tuesday as Built Ford Tough Texas High School Football Players of the Week.

Harris is the Class 2A honoree.

He is joined on the Week 6 list by Weatherford quarterback Ken Seals in 6A, Pine Tree quarterback D.J. Freeman, San Elizario running back Raymond Acevedo in 4A, Orangefield defensive back Clayson Choate in 3A and Houston Christian quarterback Austin Smith for private schools.

Harris rushed for 130 yards and passed for 91 yards and three touchdowns to go along with a touchdown reception of 18 yards in the Bearcats’ win over Tenaha.

He later iced the upset win for Beckville in the district opener with an interception in the end zone.

“He played real well,” Beckville coach Cody Ross said. “He carried the ball real well and did a great job with his reads.

“He stays level-headed and finds a new to get things done when we need it.”

Harris has the Bearcats at 2-3 for the season and 1-0 in District 11-2A.
