Another national honor for a Cuero football star.

Whittington, one of 100 college prospects from across the country getting to play in this game. One of the head coaches for the game, former Cowboys star and Pro Football Hall Of Famer Deion Sanders.

Whittington is a three-time Max Preps All-America who has committed to sign with the Texas Longhorns. Our Sean Coffey talked with Jordan about the honor.

“Excitement and anxiety at the same time. You know, I’ve been anxious to get the invite to the game. Just watching the game since I was in junior high, and being able to play in it now, it’s a dream come true.”
