The All Hays Free Press/ News-Dispatch football team

Wimberley quarterback Cooper McCullom was chosen as the 2020 Most Valuable Player

Numbers never lie in sports but they sometimes don’t tell the whole story. Yes, the stat line for Wimberley Texan senior quarterback Cooper McCollum is as impressive as one will find among any elite signal caller. More than 3,700 yards passing, close to 700 yards rushing and 63 total touchdowns (the fourth most in the entire state) made McCollum one of the more dangerous offensive threats in Texas. However, attributes not tallied in a stat column, such as leadership skills, perseverance and grit, were traits McCollum consistently displayed throughout Wimberley’s dream run to AT&T Stadium and the 4A, Division II state title game. Without those, it’s hard to imagine Wimberley making a similar run as it had this past season. That’s why we at the Hays Free Press and News-Dispatch are proud to name McCollum as our 2019-20 Most Valuable Player. Below you will find our list of first and second team honorees to our list. While not every player who hit the field is on here, we at Barton Publications recognizes the hard work put in by the hundreds of football players across the county this season.
