Weatherford senior quarterback Ken Seals recently added to his collection of accolades, being named to his fifth International Bowl as well as earning Ford Built Tough Player of the Week honors for his play against District 3-6A opponent Haltom.

Seals was named to the U.S. Under-19 National Team, which is set to play the Panama National Team on Jan. 15, 2020 at AT&T Stadium as part of the 2020 International Bowl.

The Weatherford gunslinger already owns four International Bowl championships.

Seals’ Built Ford Tough Player of the Week recognition comes on the heels of an 18-for-21 performance against Haltom which saw the senior put up 384 passing yards and five TDs to go along with four rushes for 49 yards.

With that performance, Seals became Weatherford High School’s all-time touchdown scorer (51).

The Kangaroos’ quarterback is also in line to become the school’s all-time leading passer, only needing another 153 yards.

Seals, who committed to Vanderbilt earlier this year, has also excelled off the field, owning a 4.48 GPA (class rank of eight out of 474 students) in addition to being a member of the Kangaroo Mentor Program and organizing/running a free youth football camp for Parker County children.

Among a slew of athletic awards, Seals stands as the only player in USA Football history to win more than three championships and only player to be selected to Team USA five times.

Weatherford Head Football Coach Billy Mathis said his quarterback’s most recent recognition is well-deserved. 

“Ken works his tail off all the time, he deserves everything that he gets,” Mathis said.

“He’s very talented. I’m excited for him.”

Weatherford, which is on a bye this week, sits at 5-1 overall and 1-1 in District 3-6A.
