It’s been known for years that Houston (Tex.) Westside wide receiver Bobby Hartzog can stretch the field. With his blazing 4.4 40-yard speed, there’s a reason that he averages 25 yards per catch.
After looking at lots of film, it was decided that the Touchdown Club of Houston is set to honor Hartzog and a number of others next week at an awards banquet for offensive and defensive players of the year.
“It feels great (to be honored). Hard work really does pay off,” Hartzog said.
For the 2013 season, the 6-foot, 180-pound Hartzog is done after he and the Westside team fell in the opening round of the playoffs. Hartzog, a Kansas commit, led the team in receptions with 31 catches for 773 yards and 12 touchdowns.
As stated, Hartzog will be taking his talents to the Big 12 Conference after graduation.
“Everything is going good between me and Kansas. When I went down there in October, it was everything I was looking for,” Hartzog said.
