Cowboy commitment Andre Sexton was named the Houston Touchdown Club's Defensive Player of the Year. This was an award won two years ago by current Cowboy defensive tackle Brad Girtman when he was at Houston Memorial H.S.
Sexton is a 6-1, 195-pound cornerback out of Cypress Falls High School. This season he had eight interceptions and more than 60 tackles along with excellent production on punt and kickoff returns.
The other award winner was Houston Westside all-purpose back R.J. Jackson. For just the second time in their existence the Houston Touchdown Club gave out the Ironman Award honoring a high school player that was prolific on both sides of the ball.
This season the 6-0, 200-pound Jackson rushed for more than 700 yards and an average of nine yards a carry. He hauled in mre than 800 yards in receptions and a 20-yard per catch average. He scored a total of 34 touchdowns. He scored on runs, receptions, punt and kickoff returns, interception return, and a fumble return. On defense he had 30 total tackles and seven interceptions. Jackson visited OSU on Dec. 3 and is also considering LSU and Texas.
Last year current Cowboy quarterback Bobby Reid was named the Houston Touchdown Club Offensive Player of the Year, so OSU has quite a tradition with Houston Touchdown Club honorees.
