The Fort Worth Star-Telegram is partnering with former TCU football star and Pro Football Hall of Famer, LaDainian Tomlinson for the inaugural Star-Telegram's Tomlinson Honors.
This event was designed to celebrate and honor high school athletes who have, excelled on the field, have displayed superior character and were outstanding in the classroom. It is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. June 11, 2018 at the Hurst Conference Center in Hurst, TX.
Awards will be given to the year's best players and coaches of the Star-Telegram all-stars teams covering 12 sports. Tomlinson, in partnership with Star-Telegram, will give All-American Honors scholarships exceeding $40,000. Recipients of the All-American Honors award are student-athletes displaying superior character, education and performance during the 2017-18 school year.
