The 6-1.5, 174-pound football, basketball and track star for the Falcons caught six touchdowns as a junior with five going for 45 yards or more, including a 52-yardsslant that he caught against Beaumont West Brook in which he ran away from D-I players in the Bruin's secondary.

On the basketball court, Hawkins uses his 38-inch vertical and quickness to average double figures and in the spring will very likely post 100-meter times in the 10.6 range. Blessed with long arms, soft hands, explosive 4.4 speed and quickness in addition to his elite level leaping ability, Hawkins is one of the fastest rising prospects in Texas.
In 2008, Hawkins caught nearly 500 yards in passes and averaging over 30 yards per catch.
