LeBron James, Dwight Howard, Candace Parker and Allyson Felix are among the former winners of this award."It's obviously incredible, and I couldn't be more blessed," Gilbert told the American-Statesman in a phone interview Wednesday.

"I'm thankful for what's happened.

It's real cool."Gilbert, who was named Gatorade's national football player of the year in December, was in Los Angeles for the award luncheon and will attend Thursday night's ESPY awards.

Gilbert was unsure whether he'll be recognized at the awards show, which will be aired on Sunday.Gilbert, the incoming Longhorns quarterback, spent three years on the Lake Travis varsity team and won two state championships while setting four state passing records.

This past season, he threw for 4,854 yards and 55 touchdowns while leading the Cavaliers to a 48-23 victory over Longview in the Class 4A, Division I title game.Permalink | Comments (6) | Post your commentCommentsClick here to report comment abuse.By bighorn911 July 18, 2009 11:44 PM | Link to thisReally looking forward to seeing you continue the winning tradition when you take McCoy's job in 2010!!!
