History was made in Frisco last week at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium with some electricTexas High School football state championship games. Record numbers of attendances showed up to see some legendary action taking place and many anticipated matchups taking place between teams that have made it through adversity to get to the game every single team in the state has the goal of getting to.
We highlighted some of the top performers from the game, some of the athletes that were the difference-makers in the state title games. Let’s dive right into it who were the standout recruits of the very last game of the season. But we don’t believe in “offseason” around here folks, there is no such thing in the world of recruiting, so as the season came to the end, athletes’ journeys never stop.
Marquice Collins (23) RB, College Station
Collins has been a beast all season long for C-stat. In the state title game he picked up consistent yardage, he even broke one long run which everyone in Jerry’s world was anticipating, flashing his elite speed and agility. Ended the night with 25 carries, 199 yards rushing, and 2 touchdowns. Collin will head into next season in the conversation as being one of the best in his class in the state, it will be tough, the 2023 class is loaded with talent, Collins is in the top 5 to 10 running backs in the state for me in my book.
3.1 Core GPA
Season Stats: 2,826 Rushing Yards, 3,089 All purpose, 39 Rushing TDS, 42 Total TDS
Play offs: 1,200+ rushing, 19 TDS!
Thank you seniors!💜

Traylen Suel (22) WR, College Station
Suel, easily one of the most underrated processes in the senior class this season has been terrific for the cougs . Severally undersized never stopped Suel from putting on electric performances. In the loss against Paetow, Suel had 11 receptions for 171 yards receiving and 1 touchdown

Jacob Brown (22) RB, Paetow
Brown lead Paetow to victory on the ground with 33 carries for 112 yards rushing and 1 touchdown on the night. Jacob has been a very good producer for Paetow helping them put their name on the map. Brown was picking up some rough yardage and was the offensive MVP in the Paetows historic state title victory against a stacked College Station Cougars team.
Cade Klubnik (22), QB, Westlake
The Clemson commit capped off the final game of his high school career with a bang. Kubik has been one of the top quarterback prospects the state has seen who has put up prolific numbers and shaking up record books from other Texas great high school prospects who have come before. In the game Klubnik could not miss, his timing with receivers was the same as it has been all season and Westlake came out firing in the first half. Stat line on the night, 14 completions out of 21 attempts and for 280 yards passing with 4 touchdowns and only 1 interception.
Man what a ride.
Can’t believe it’s over. https://t.co/nOITDG7rqD

Jaden Greathouse (23) WR, Westlake
There is no doubt the Greathouse can ball, in the game he showed out with 7 receptions going for 236 yards receiving and 3 touchdowns. He is a tall lengthy receiver who in my belief is one of the top receiver recruits in the 2023 cycle in the state. Greathouse flashed his elite route-running, vertical ability and timing with Kubnik in the game and it was lethal; the two were unstoppable and found a connection that would last the entire game and lead Westlake to victory and back-to-back, to-back state championships, with legendary head coach Todd Dodge taking the field for the last time after an illustrious career.
Klubnik 🤝 Greathouse
