Some honors go beyond what players do on the playing fields. Such is the case with the annual Texas High School Coaches Association Academic All-State accolades, which were recently announced. Six members of the Glen Rose Tigersí 2009 District 7-3A co-championship team have been named to the Class 3A Academic All-State team. To achieve this honor, senior student-athletes must have maintained a 92 average in all classes all four years of high school. Grade point average, class ranking and test scores are used to determine the athletesí ranking. Glen Rose honorees (in no particular order) are Graham Noell, who achieved Elite Status, Ty Taylor, a first-team selection, second-team pick Reagan Rotan, and honorable mention selections Colton Bailey, Shelby Junge and Dylan Rodriguez..
