Clemson 5-star running back signee Demarkcus Bowman was awarded Mr. Football for the state of Florida this week.
It was the closest margin of a vote in the 28 years the award has been given, per The Ledger.
“I’m happy,” Bowman told The Ledger. “I’m glad I won. I was kind of surprised because I had better numbers last year...I didn’t think I had a chance."
Bowman rushed for 1,570 yards and averaged 11.1 yards per carry as a senior, scoring 24 TDs in 10 games. He topped 5,000 yards over his Lakeland (Fla.) career.
