Kliff Kingsbury To Enter Texas High School Football Hall of Fame

ODESSA, TX (Local 2/Fox 24) - According to the Texas Tech Athletics, football coach Kliff Kingsbury will enter the Texas High School Football Hall of Fame as a part of the 2018 class.

Kingsbury played his high school ball at New Braunfels High School.

Below you can find a media release by Texas Tech Athletics in part:

 

"Kingsbury is one of two Red Raider greats set for induction this spring as former running back Bobby Cavazos will also be part of the six-player class that features Brad Dusek (Temple H.S.), Ken Washington (Port Arthur Lincoln H.S.), Tommy Jeter (Deer Park H.S.) and Johnathan Gray (Aledo H.S.).

 

Before rewriting the Tech record book as the quarterback of the Red Raiders, Kingsbury became a passing legend at his hometown New Braunfels High School. Kingsbury threw for 3,009 yards and 34 touchdowns as a senior to lead New Braunfels to the Class 5A Division II state semifinals just one year after finishing 4-8 overall.

 

New Braunfels finished Kingsbury’s 1997 senior season with a 13-2 record, which included six come-from-behind victories. The successful season earned Kingsbury, who was also an academic all-state selection in high school, a scholarship offer from then Texas Tech head coach Spike Dykes.

 

Kingsbury set 39 school records as well seven NCAA FBS marks during his career leading the Red Raider passing attack as he threw for 12,429 yards and 95 touchdowns over his four-year career from 1999-2002. Kingsbury threw for 5,017 yards and 45 touchdowns during his 2002 senior year alone, earning him Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year honors as well as the Sammy Baugh Trophy.

 

The Texas High School Football Hall of Fame will be held at 6 p.m. on May 5 inside the Farrell Center on the campus of Baylor University in Waco. Tickets are $45 for adults and $15 for students.
