THSCA 2013-14 Academic All-State Football Teams

The Texas High School Coaches Association (THSCA) announced their 2013-14 Academic All-State Football Teams.  The THSCA is now recognizing Academic All-State Athletes in 13 different sports. Including both men's and women's athletics.

To be nominated for Academic All-State, a student must be:

  • An athlete, student trainer or manager in good standing with the team
  • Of good moral character
  • A senior
  • Have an overall grade point average of 92 or above (including courses from grades 9-11 and courses completed from grade 12). Weighted GPAs accepted.

While the student might initially meet the criteria for nomination, that does not guarantee the student a spot on a team. When reviewing the nominations, the THSCA considers each students’ GPA, class rank, SAT and/or ACT score. The students receive points based on each criteria. The total number of points they receive determines which team they are placed on. The classification of the school is not a factor, and  there’s not a limit on how many players can make a team.

The best team a player can make is the Elite Team. It is a great honor to make the Elite team, as a player must have near perfect scores in all categories. The hierarchy then follows in this order:

1st Team
2nd Team
Honorable Mention

This year, Flower Mound led the way with 49 student athletes making the list, including 3 who qualified as Elite.

Congratulations to all these student athletes!

    So none of the Houston Independent players made the list? That seems a bit odd? Bellaire, Houston Lamar, Houston Reagan………

    Not sure what that means. It could be that HISD didn’t turn in results.

    Hi Chris…please take another look. We’ve got Houston Austin (2), Houston North Forest (3) and Houston Worthing (1). We’ve got GREAT kids and they should all be honored. I’m giving big time kuddos to Coach’s Baggett, Ferrell and Ellis

What are your thoughts?
