Athlete of the Week: Hebbronville's Mark Avila

Athlete of the Week: Mark Avila

HEBBRONVILLE, TX (KIII SPORTS) - Mark Avila, a four year varsity player for the Hebbronville football team, is our Athlete of the Week.

The past two years, he's led the Longhorns to district championships, but he's hoping to bring extended playoff success to his hometown.

Avila has heard the stories of the great Hebbronville teams from the late 80s from his dad Marco, who while playing for the Longhorns, made three state semifinals appearances.

The younger Avila is determined to help his team write its own history. The Longhorns start their chase at that deep playoff run this week when they play Banquete to start district play. You can watch coverage of that game on the Blitz, Friday night at 10:35pm.
