Four football players named Academic All-State


Cougar football player Westin Goodman has been named to the first team Academic All-State Team by the Texas High School Coaches Association.

Players Trent Hohl, Casey Harmier and Tristan Born were named to the second team, and Weston Shattuck was named as an honorable mention.

“We emphasize academics as a priority in our athletes’ lives, and it is rewarding to see their hard work pay off with state-wide recognition,” said head football coach Danny Ramsey. “We are extremely proud of this achievement for our kids, and know that they can look forward to continued successes because of their efforts.”

The Academic All-State team recognizes those students who have excelled in GPA, class rank and ACT/SAT scores while being active in athletics.

At the 2013 Football Awards Banquet recently, the coaches also presented the Heart Award to Harmier, the MVP Award to Hohl and Shattuck, and the Coaches’ Scholar-Athlete Award to Goodman.
