“You fill out a lot of paperwork, the recruiting trail you try to get your child noticed and you hope for the best,” Nault's father, Francis, said. “This is above and beyond.”

And for Landon, that could be a huge weekend.

No. 2 Kingfisher could be playing in the Class 3A championship game ahead of the trip that weekend. But Nault is not thinking that far ahead on the field.

The Yellowjackets first play host to No. 10 Jones on Friday in a big playoff battle.

The Longhorns (7-4) could be troublesome, too, having won seven of their last eight games with the emergence of quarterback Clayton Sims.

“On the football side, we've got to take it week by week,” he said. “You can't put yourself in that spot just yet. In my mind that's what comes first: my team and football.

“Going to the Heisman ceremony, that's going to be incredible, but that comes second.

“Hopefully we can come in and get some big wins and get to that state game and win that state game, and then I'll be happy to go to New York.”
