Guyer quarterback Jackson Arnold put a bow on his star-studded high school career Thursday when he was named Gatorade’s National Football Player of the Year, a first in Denton ISD’s history.

One of Denton’s top players of all time, Arnold racked up a plethora of accolades throughout his time with the Wildcats, though perhaps none quite as prestigious as Gatorade’s top football honor. He guided Guyer to the 6A-DII state semifinals this fall, throwing for 3,476 yards and 33 touchdowns while running for 921 yards and 24 scores.
