LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin Panthers football player has been nominated for the Mr. Texas Football Player of the Week award.

Lufkin Panthers wide receiver Dhailon Phillips was one of 10 nominees for the weekly statewide award, which is decided by fan voting. The poll, which is located at www.texasfootball.com, closes Friday at noon.

“The recipe for success, we’ve found, is schools that utilize social media to spread the word to their students, faculty, staff, coaches, parents, and anyone who supports their team and community,” said Brad Hilliard, a spokesman for “Dave Campbell’s Texas Football.”

The magazine has set up a Facebook page and a Twitter feed to help spread the world. The Twitter feed is @MrTexasFootball.

Phillips had a stellar night in the Lufkin Panthers’ roller coaster 52-49 overtime victory over Tyler Lee Friday night. According to the etsn.fm Website, the 6-foot-3, 195-pound, junior had 10 catches for 228 yards and two touchdowns.

Lufkin was down 42-3 with a little more than a minute to go in the first half, and the Panthers managed to pull off a win to go 1-1 for the season.
