The Scarborough High School football team was among Houston-area schools recognized for their on-field sportsmanship during the Touchdown Club of Houston’s 16th annual Sportsmanship Luncheon on April 7.
Scarborough was the Class 4A sportsmanship winner as one of five Houston ISD schools to take home awards, which were selected by referees who called high school games in 2020 in Classes 4A, 5A and 6A. Fellow 4A competitor Booker T. Washington as well as 5A Waltrip were the other local schools nominated for the honor.
A news release from HISD said referees used a point system to rank each team during each week of the 2020 football season. Scarborough finished with a 0-5 record in a season shortened by the COVID-19 pandemic, while Waltrip and Washington recorded one win apiece.
“I am so proud of all the teams recognized for this outstanding award,” HISD Athletic Director Andre' Walker said. “Winning on the scoreboard is great, but winning beyond the game sets our student-athletes up for success in life.”
