A couple of key cogs in the Heights Bulldogs’ successful high school football season were recently recognized by the Touchdown Club of Houston for their contributions.
Senior running back Kendric Rhymes was named a finalist for the club’s Offensive Player of the Year award after a 2020 season in which he ran for 645 yards and 12 touchdowns. He added 403 receiving yards to go along with six touchdown catches as part of a Bulldog offense that averaged nearly 41 points per contest.
Heights head coach Stephen Dixon was recognized as a finalist for the Touchdown Club’s Coach of the Year honors after guiding the Bulldogs to a 7-2 regular-season record, along with their first district championship and playoff win since 2013.
“Wouldn’t be possible without an excellent group of young men and coaches that are all in,” Dixon wrote on Twitter last week.
