HISD student-athletes named to Touchdown Club’s All-Greater Houston football team

Each year before the start of a new football season, the Touchdown Club of Houston names its Preseason All-Greater Houston UIL High School football team. This year, two HISD seniors were selected to represent the district at the annual Touchdowner of the Year gala, where they were recognized alongside athletes from neighboring school districts.

Tristen Brown, a 4.0 senior from Lamar High School, is a wide receiver and is committed to play next year at Vanderbilt University.  

“It felt great to be honored,” said Brown. “Knowing that I was selected amongst a lot of great athletes for this honor makes it feel that much more special.”

Frank Moss, a senior from Heights High School, plays offensive lineman and is a Texas Southern University commit for next season.

“It was amazing,” said Moss. “There were a lot of legends there from Houston as well who’ve gone on to do great things for the community. Seeing those people in that room motivates me to step up my game and get to their level.” 

Since 2009, the Touchdown Club has worked with HISD and the Houston Texans to help more than 800 high school football players receive $80 million in scholarships, collectively. The organization also uses football as a catalyst for service in the community.

“They really believe in our kids and give them the opportunity to improve themselves by showcasing their talents” said HISD Athletics Director Andre’ Walker. “All the different events that they host are all centered around student-athletes, so they really help HISD in a tremendous way, and we look forward to continuing to work with them.”
