The Woodlands Resident - St. Pius X All-Star Quarterback, Grant Gunnell, named High School Athlete of the Year

HOUSTON, TX / THE WOODLANDS, TX – St. Pius X High School quarterback, junior Grant Gunnell of The Woodlands, was named Texas Sports Nation High School Athlete of the Year last night at the Houston Sports Awards.

Gunnell was selected as the winner out of three finalists as determined by Houston-area media. The other two finalists were Barbers Hill High School basketball star, Charli Collier, and Travis High School pitcher and outfielder, Trey Faltine.

“I’m sure it was a very tough decision; the other two finalists were fierce competition,” said Gunnell. “It’s a real honor to have been selected the High School Athlete of the Year.”

“Grant is a great young man, student, and athlete,” said Carmen Garrett Armistead, Head of St. Pius X High School. “We are so proud to have him at St. Pius X, and to have had the chance to watch him grow and mature into the phenomenal young man he has become.”

Gunnell has had an outstanding 2017-2018 season. He threw 4,936 passing yard, and completed 61 touchdown passes, leading St. Pius X to a 10-2 record. He averaged 411.3 yards a game passing, completing 361 of 507 attempts with 6 interceptions and ran for 390 yards and 8 touchdowns. He tied the single-game state record for touchdowns with 10 this past season against Houston Chavez. He is the number one pro-style quarterback in the 2019 class according to the 247Sports composite, and has won several other awards, including Ford Player of the Year and numerous player of the week awards from various entities.
