Price proved to be one of the more state’s most versatile players in 2018, earning Star Local Media MVP honors after being a significant contributor in all three phases of the game for the Cougars while finding the end zone in a whopping five different ways.
The District 5-5A Division I MVP, who holds numerous Division I football offers, including from the likes of TCU, SMU, Kansas and Illinois, helped The Colony to its first outright district title and a 9-2 record overall, finishing with 29 total touchdowns.
In his first season as a starting wide receiver, Price hauled in 66 receptions for 1,049 yards and 16 touchdowns while also chipping in as a rusher (the junior was primarily a tailback as an underclassmen) with 515 yards (10 per carry) and eight touchdowns.
Price also threw a touchdown pass in the Colony’s bi-district playoff game, while posting three kickoff return touchdowns, another punt return for a score and blocking a field goal over the course of the year.
But Price — who was named the district’s Two-Way Player of the Year as a sophomore — wasn’t limited to contributions on just offense and special teams.
As a defensive back, Price was often tasked with slowing the opposition’s top receiving threat and finished the season with 18 tackles, two passes defended, three interceptions and 90 return yards.
