Touchdown Club Scholar-Athlete

Stratford High’s Jordan Bernstein became the third football player in school history to win the Touchdown Club’s annual Scholar-Athlete Award, which included a $1,500 scholarship. Former Stanford University and Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was the last Stratford High student to receive the recognition.

Bernstein received the top honor during the 14th annual High School Football Scholar-Athlete Luncheon held Nov. 7 at the J.W. Marriott Hotel in the Galleria. He was one of 25 student-athlete finalists from the area that received this award.

All finalists had to be seniors and starters on their football teams with high grade-point averages and a history of good citizenship as shown by their extracurricular activities. The finalists were all chosen by the office of presidents at the University of Houston, Rice University and Texas Southern University.

Other district finalists were Fernando Bello of Northbrook High and Patrick Christie of Memorial High. Bello, who is ranked No. 1 in his class, is interested in a career in aerospace engineering and business. Christie, who played wide receiver and kicker, was named to the National High School Honor Society and is Memorial baseball player, too. Bello and Christie received $500 college scholarships as finalists.

In separate athletic news this fall, Katie Gregory and Macey Smith of Stratford High were named as top recipients in the Positive Coaching Alliance-Houston scholarship program.
