Langham Creek junior quarterback Chris Herron has made it a season to remember. Fans fell in love with his dual-threat abilities, which resulted in 28 touchdowns, over 2,000 yards of offense, and two VYPE Player of the Game nods during the regular season. Herron received 50.15% of the 48,292 votes on last week’s VYPE NW Houston Football Player of the Year poll.
“Feels amazing to know that people are watching you, and want good for you,” said Herron. “I know that I am in one of the most competitive regions of high school football, so it’s pretty big knowing that I’m one of the top players in this area.”
The Lobos relied on his stellar play to reach their first regional final in program history, and can’t wait to follow his plan for Saturday’s rematch against 17-6A foe Cy-Fair.
“This is an honor to be named VYPE Player of the Year, but our work isn’t done yet,” he said of his team going into the historic matchup. “All of us will continue to do our job, and finish writing history this year.”
Per The Athletic's Chandler Rome, Framber Valdez plans on both he and the catcher calling pitches this year. He said he “wants to feel more comfortable,” adding “not that I don't feel comfortable with the catchers, but I want to feel comfortable and throw the pitches with more conviction…to feel like I have the game in my hands.”

Is that a good thing? Either way, it seems like a return to form for Framber Valdez is the biggest “what if” for the 2024 Houston Astros.
