It has been a huge senior season for Texas Tech commit Cameron Batson. He would love to end it…
Batson Humbled by Prestigious Award
The 5-8, 170-pound Batson has primarily featured as a quarterback in the Millwood offense, but plans to switch to slot receiver in college. So far in his senior season, he has thrown for 1,946 yards and 27 touchdowns with a 54.3 completion rate, as well as rushed for 1,039 yards and 16 scores. Batson has also picked off nine passes with three returned for touchdowns at defensive back.
"You know, I'm very honored to win," Batson said, regarding his award as state player of the year. "I thank God, my family, and my teammates."
Batson is renowned by scouts for his quickness off the line and his running ability, with his size as his only real weakness. However, Texas Tech will be a good fit for him, considering there are plenty of receivers and backs at his height (or shorter) who feature prominently in the Texas Tech offense.
Batson is a strong student, leading his class with a 4.0 GPA and being a member of the National Honor Society. He is also the senior class president.
"I'm really excited to go to Texas Tech and play in an exciting offense…I can't wait to be part of what's happening down in Lubbock," Batson added.
Red Raider fans are surely as excited for Batson as he is for them. Millwood (13-0) takes on Hartshorne next week in the Oklahoma Class 2A state semifinals. The game has been postponed until next week due to inclement weather.
