Ole Miss signee Daniel Demery honored as private school Player of Year in north Texas

OXFORD, Miss. — The Ole Miss signees in the class of 2023 continue to impress, and they have yet to take the field at Vaught-Hemingway. 

One such player is safety Daniel Demery who was honored Saturday as the private school Player of the Year at the Texas Built Ford Tough Player of the Year Banquet held at the Omni Frisco Hotel in Frisco, Texas.

The program, concluding its 17th season, honors players from each classification and private schools throughout the season for their work on the field, in the classroom and in the community with Player of the Week honors. 

Those players are then invited to the Player of the Year Banquet, where a top player from each division is named.

Demery has been a defensive force throughout out his high school career at Parish Episcopal in Dallas, finishing up as one of the top prep players in the region. He will bring much grit to the Ole Miss defense. 

During his final season at Parish Episcopal, Demery notched 70 tackles, 10 pass breakups and 5 interceptions as his team finished 12-1. 

His team went on to win the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) DI state title over Midland Christian this past December.

To those of us covering Demery’s career, it is not surprising has taken home such a prestigious award. 

 We caught up with him for his reaction on receiving this top honor.

Winning private school Player of The Year was exciting, to say the least. I’ve worked hard every day since I was a little kid to get to where I am today. So being able to see that hard work pay off, first-hand, is truly amazing.
