Scout.com has an update on St. Thomas athlete Chris Zook from Houston, Texas, who was recently named to a prestigious list of the area’s best athletes.

After a successful season, primarily playing on the defensive side of the ball, Houston (Tex.) St. Thomas athlete Chris Zook has been honored in a way that has him excited. 

On December 4, Zook will be one of 10 players on stage with the Houston Touchdown Club defensive player of the year.

“It’s a great honor. I could not have done it without my team, coaches, parents and everyone who supported me,” Zook said. 

The 6-foot, 185-pound Zook made his commitment to Army in early November after taking in some game day action against Air Force. It is likely that he will stay in the secondary once on the West Point campus. 

“I love the structure and the discipline of the school. It is very unique compared to other schools,” Zook said just after his commitment. “Also, this gives me the opportunity to give back and serve my country after graduation.”

Through his prep career at St. Thomas, Zook has brought plenty of versatility and overall athleticism to the team. He has played nearly every skilled position and excelled. He and his team advanced all the way to the final game before falling short for the team’s only loss for the season.

Zook averaged about seven tackles a game and has an interception in the 2013 season.
