Jordan Whittington, earning his fourth MaxPreps All-America honor. This time, Whittington gets first team honors as an all-purpose athlete. The Texas signee had the greatest rushing performance in a UIL state championship game. Whittington rushed for 334 yards and five touchdowns, while picking up another TD catch, in Cuero’s win over Texarkana Pleasant Grove to claim the school’s first state title since 1987. Jordan added 11 tackles on defense, and was named the offensive and defensive MVP of the game. Whittington was second team MaxPreps All-America as a sophomore, first team All-America as a junior and made the pre-season MaxPreps All-America team before his senior season. Jordan will play in the All-American Bowl in the Alamodome Saturday at noon on NBC-Victoria.
