Mansfield High School running back Kennedy Brooks won the 2016 Landry Award, making it the second year in a row the honor has went to a Mansfield ISD student-athlete.

The Landry Award recognizes the top high school football player within the 32 counties that make up North Texas. Recipients must also demonstrate positive character and leadership attributes.

Brooks was presented the award on Monday, Dec. 12. The Oklahoma University commit was also a finalist last year; however, Lake Ridge High School's Jett Duffey was awarded the trophy in 2015.

The Landry Award was created by local news stations CBS 11 and TXA 21 in partnership with the Greater Dallas/Fort Worth Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ Character and Leadership Initiative. Honorees are chosen by a voting panel of former coaches and players, members of the media and local leaders. Online public voting is also taken into account.

The ceremony will be televised Friday, Dec. 30 at 6:30 p.m. on CBS 11.
