Four of the five Pasadena ISD high-school football teams have been named as finalists for the Houston Touchdown Club's 2010-2011 Sportsmanship Award in the Class 5A Division.
Dobie, Memorial, Pasadena and South Houston were named among 16 Houston-area finalists in Class 5A.
All the finalists will be honored at the High School Sportsmanship Luncheon on Jan. 27 at the JW Marriott in the Galleria area. The event is sponsored by Sterling Bank. Awards will be presented by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
Awards will be presented to the first-, second- and third-place teams in each of three divisions - 5A, 4A and 3A/private schools.
Also nominated in the 5A division were Channelview, Clear Brook, Clear Lake, Cy Woods, Deer Park, Dickinson, Aldine Eisenhower, Kingwood, Klein, Lamar, Mayde Creek and Houston Memorial.
Dobie took second place in competition for the award a year ago when three teams were named without any division designation.
Selections are based upon feedback from area football referees.
The speaker at the luncheon will be Brad McCoy, the father of quarterback Colt McCoy of the Cleveland Browns.
