September 7, 2010 â€“ Brookshire, Texas â€“ Dave Campbellâ€™s Texas Football is proud to announce that the Brookshire Royal High School Falcons football team has been named the Army Strong Team of the Week for Division 3A.
The Falcons were chosen for this honor because of their teamwork, dedication, discipline, personal courage and integrity, values shared by U.S. Army Soldiers.Â Â
â€œBrookshire Royal knocked off powerhouse Giddings with a dramatic 60-yard touchdown run by star RB Brandon Williams in the closing minutes that secured a 34-31 victory,â€ said Adam Hochfelder, general manager of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football. â€œWilliams, who has committed to OU, rushed for 259 yards on 18 carries. Royal also beat Giddings in the 2009 state playoffs.â€
The award will be presented to the team at a time to be determined later this week by a representative of the U.S. Army.
“The U.S. Army is recognizing the student-athletes at Brookshire High School for demonstrating qualities similar to those exhibited by its Soldiers. Student-athletes and Soldiers share similar values, but more importantly they must be mentally, emotionally and physically strong,” said CPT John Harrell. “We expect to see some of these young men competing at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, the college level, or maybe even professionally in the future.”
