A great young Texas high school football star – Layton Dworaczyk – has been recognized today as the Built Ford Tough Texas High School Football Player of the Week for Class 2A.
The Built Ford Tough Texas High School Football Player of the Week program honors a Student-athlete in six of the state’s athletic classifications every week during the high school football regular season for his accomplishments on and off the field.
The only thing Layton Dworaczyk didn’t do that week was sell popcorn. In Blanco’s 33-26 win against Luling, Dworaczyk, a returning All-Stater, was a one-man wrecking crew, rushing 39 times for 317 yards and five touchdowns.
The senior fullback accounted for 32 of his team’s 33 points, scoring on runs of 2, 9, 7, 6 and 2 yards and adding a two-point conversion. On defense, he had two pass break-ups and six solo tackles from the safety position. A three-year starter, he rushed for 1,518 yards and 21 TDs last season. “He’s a leader on the field and oh-so-quiet off it. We know with him running the ball, we always have a chance. His motor never stops. He gives 100 percent all game, every game. If it were up to Layton, he’d run the ball all game”, says Coach Danny Rogers. “He’s an intimidator in the secondary preferring to dish out punishment instead of taking it.”
Layton also participates in track and field. He regularly attends bible school and is a volunteer coach with the local youth football organization. He maintains a B average.
Jennings Anderson Ford dealership will be presenting him the trophy as well as a trophy to Coach Danny Rogers for Blanco High School at half-time on Friday, October 2 during the Homecoming football game.
