One of Friendswood’s most exciting football players in recent years was honored as the District 24-6A Most Valuable Player after a stellar career for the Mustangs.
The past two years especially his seen Page as one of the main attractions in leading Friendswood to a combined record of 17-8 while advancing to the Class 6A Region III Div. II semifinals for the past two seasons.
Page was a highlight reel waiting to happen every time he had the ball in his hands and he drove opposing defensive coordinators crazy in trying to prepare for his unbelievable antics on the gridiron.
The elusive signal-caller closed out his record-setting career as the all-time leading rusher for the Mustangs.
Page was 196-of-370 passing for 2,988 yards and 31 touchdowns with 13 interceptions. He had 689 carries for 5,281 yards and 72 TDs.
The past two seasons, he was the only player in the Houston area that surpassed the 2,000 yard mark on the ground which is remarkable since he was a quarterback.
He had 2,124 yards and 24 TDs his junior season in 2015 and closed out the 2016 season with 2,092 yards and 31 scores.
Page, who has given his non-binding verbal commitment to SMU, crushed the previous individual FHS rushing mark which was held by former Friendswood running back Sam Longbotham who finished his career with 3,564 yards.
Also named to the All-District first-team was Connor Stanford who was named as an offensive lineman. He was also named to the second-team as a defensive end.
Junior offensive lineman Max Yarbrough, senior kicker Cody Williamson, junior defensive end Wyatt Hall, and senior defensive tackle Chase Willis were also selected.
