15 PfISD students named THSCA Academic All-State

Dec. 6, 2019


Pflugerville ISD had a total of 15 student-athletes named to the THSCA Football Academic All-State Teams. The honors were announced by the Texas Army National Guard and the Texas High School Coaches Association earlier this week.
 
Hendrickson High School had 10 named to the teams, with Paul Lietzke making the first team. Two more Hawks were named to the second team and seven earned honorable mention.
 
Weiss High School had five football players recognized, with two on second team and three honorable mentions.
 
To be nominated for Academic All-State, a student must be a senior student athlete, trainer or manager in good standing with the team, of good moral character and have an overall grade point average of 92 or above.
 
Nominations must be made by the head coach of the prospective sport and the head coach must be a member of THSCA by Oct. 15. After nominations are submitted and the deadline has passed, the nominations are sent to THSCA for review. While the student might initially meet the criteria for nomination, that does not guarantee the student a spot on a team.
 
The THSCA considers each students’ GPA, class rank, SAT and/or ACT score when reviewing the nominations. The students receive points based on each criteria. The total number of points they receive determines which team they are placed on. The classification of the school is not a factor, and there is no limit on how many players can make a team.
 
Elite Team is the highest honor a student can receive on the academic all-state teams. Students must have near perfect scores in all categories to be named to the Elite team in their respective sport. THSCA also names a first and second team along with honorable mention.
