The month of September has come to an end and the Dripping Springs High School Player of the Month Award has been given to varsity football quarterback Tanner Prewit. Prewit started off the season by winning the MaxPreps Texas High School Player of the Week due to his performance against Kerrville Tivy on August 31. Prewit racked up 263 passing yards and three passing touchdowns, but that wasn’t all as he recorded 173 rushing yards as well as another three touchdowns on the ground.
“I’ve been working really hard over the past three years now on training with football and strength and conditioning camps,” Prewit said. “Working with my wide receivers, throwing routes, and getting my timing down also helped out a lot.”
Prewit would follow up the Kerrville Tivy game with a total of 765 passing yards along with nine touchdowns over the following three games against Hays, New Braunfels-Canyon, and Travis.
Prewit’s aerial assault over the past month was not just self-bred as Prewit has high regards for Quarterback Coach Brian Thiebaud.
“Coach Thiebaud is by far one of the best quarterback coaches in the state. He taught me everything that I know,” Prewit said.
The Tigers have started out with a 4-1 record as they look to take on LBJ High School on October 12 at home.
“We’re only getting started,” Prewit said.
