DALLAS (AP) — Charlie Brewer has a little something to call his own in the decorated family history of playing quarterback in Texas.

The Lake Travis High School senior was named the 2016 Texas Associated Press Sports Editors player of the year Friday, making his school the first to win the award twice. Garrett Gilbert won in 2008.

Brewer’s quarterbacking family includes his Cotton Bowl-winning father at Texas and his two-time state champion brother at Lake Travis. He will chase his own championship Saturday night in the Class 6A Division I title game against The Woodlands.

Brewer, the 6A offensive player of the year, is the 10th winner of the award. It is voted on by eight sports writers and editors on a ballot that includes the 10 offensive and defensive players of the year in the five classifications of the Texas AP’s all-state teams.
