An email from Taylor Sexton of Dave Campbell's Texas Football to Badger Head Coach Troy Rogers:
"Cohen Cockburn has been nominated for the Mr. Texas Football Player of the Week award, presented by Dave Campbell's Texas Football and Wells Fargo in conjunction with the Advocare V100 Texas Bowl.
He is one of ten nominees for the weekly statewide award, which is 100% decided by fan voting. The poll. located at www.texasfootball.com closes Friday at noon. "
The email goes on to suggest that the school's social media spread the word to their students and community about the opportunity to go online and vote for their nominee.
The nomination was, of course, an offshoot of last Friday night's high scoring circus of a football game against Waco Robinson. Although the Badgers lost it 68-70, they played a game that far outdid what anyone had expected, and quarterback Cohen Cockburn's part in that was huge.
