Stratford High senior Fischer Robinson was named Touchdown Club of Houston's High School Football Scholar-Athlete of the Year during the regional club’s yearly luncheon held on Nov. 11.
Fischer, a three-year varsity football player who as a junior was chosen 1st Team All District-Defensive Secondary, was ranked first recently in his high school class. As the winner, he received a $1,500 college scholarship and a trophy from the Touchdown Club.
He was named the winner out of 25 student finalists, with Connor Kidd of College Park High awarded second place and Grant Carlson from Ridge Point High picked as the third-place winner. They earned, respectively, Touchdown Club scholarships of $1,250 and $1,000.
In addition to Fischer’s many accomplishments as a four-year Stratford football team member, he played on the school’s 7-on-7 football team that played in the Texas State Tournament. He is a three-year varsity Lacrosse Team member, too.
He is a National Honor Society member, Stratford Spartans Link Crew Leader, and is currently a Young Life senior leader. Fischer earned an Advanced Placement (AP) Scholar Award with Honors this year, and has earned Distinguished Honor Roll and Special Recognition Award for Straight A Report Cards in his freshman through junior years.
For the past three summers, Fischer has traveled with a team of ophthalmologists to southern Mexico and assisted surgeons in the operating room during surgeries.
This summer, he was a student research assistant with the biomedical engineering firm Procyrion, which is researching development of a minimally invasive heart pump.
To qualify as Touchdown Club scholar-athletes, applicants must be seniors and considered a starter on their respective high school football teams with the best possible grade-point average.
All student-athletes were graded by the presidents at the University of Houston, and at Rice, Texas Southern and Houston Baptist universities on academics and citizenship, as well as their extra-curricular activities.
