Americas High School running back Aaron Dumas was honord by Whataburger and Dave Campbell’s Texas Football, as he was named to the 2019 Whataburger Super Team
Dumas, an incoming senior at Blazer Nation, was one of 40 players selected to the team. More than 5,000 players were nominated by fans from across the state on texasfootball.com resulting in more than 300,000 ballots.
“It means a lot to have my organization behind me, my teammates and coaches that have supported me in this process,” Dumas said.
The Trailblazer rushed for 3,184 yards, scored 36 touchdowns and helped lead Americas to a 10 -win season. Dumas also helped the Americas football team win the 2019 District 1-6A championship and a 2019 bi-district championship. Dumas was the Class 6A cover player in the 2020 summer edition of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football Magazine.
“Anytime we see our superstars be acknowledged by the state it is a win for the city,” said Americas High School principal Patricia Cuevas. “Aaron always represents our Blazer Nation well.”
Dumas’ character of respect, discipline and dedication are reflected both on and off the field.
“Aaron is a very respectful young man, with high integrity and has great character,” said Americas High School assistant principal Bonnie Avila. “He is a quiet leader but he allows his actions to speak for him.”
The Americas High School administrators, teachers and coaches said they look forward to witnessing Dumas’ success in the future.
“Student-athletes like Aaron keep our team in a good light here and in the rest of the state,” said Patrick Melton, Americas High School head football coach.
Dumas is proud of his recognition and glad to put his teammates and coaches, who have supported him along the way, in the spotlight as well.
“This is a great accomplishment and I’m just looking forward to passing the torch down the line to upcoming players at Americas High School,” Dumas said
