by Jeff Fisher

Parade All-America TeamKyler Murray, who last night confirmed that he will stick with his verbal commitment to Texas A&M come National Signing Day on Wednesday, is Parade Magazine’s Player of the Year.  Murray and 55 others are being honored by Parade in a pre-release of its All-America Team that will be published Sunday.

Murray, who all-ready won Player of the Year honors from Gatorade, MaxPreps and USA Today High School Sports, was 42-0 as the starting quarterback of the Allen Eagles in Texas, led his school to three straight Texas state titles, plus three consecutive High School Football America “mythical” national championships.

Last year Murray had a hand in 69 touchdowns while throwing for nearly 4,000 yards and rushing for over 1,400.

In all, Parade, which has been selecting an All-American team for 51 years, saluted 56 players this year with 14 players on offense and 13 on defense making its first team and the remaining 29 players receiving honorable mention.
