Cypress Creek freshman quarterback Brad Jackson prepares to throw a pass during a game against Heights High School on Dec. 12, 2020. Jackson was named All-Greater Houston Newcomer of the Year.
Cypress Creek High School freshman quarterback Brad Jackson was named the 2020-2021 All-Greater Houston Newcomer of the Year on Feb. 6 by the Houston Chronicle, joining five other CFISD student-athletes on the All-Greater Houston team.
Jackson helped lead Cypress Creek to a 4-3 district record and a playoff appearance in his first year as a starter. He finished his freshman season completing 64 percent of his passes, throwing for 2,187 yards and 20 touchdowns.
“Brad had an outstanding ninth grade year,” said Cypress Creek Head Coach Greg McCaig. “He became the first freshman in school history to start at quarterback for the Cougars and did a phenomenal job considering that he did not have the benefit of a normal preseason to develop his rapport with his offensive teammates. He has an unlimited future at Cypress Creek, and we look for him to do very well next season.”
Other student-athletes joining Jackson are Bridgeland High School junior quarterback Connor Weigman (First Team Offense), Cy-Fair High School senior running back L.J. Johnson (First Team Offense), Bridgeland High School senior defensive back Bryce McMorris (First Team Defense), Langham Creek High School sophomore wide receiver Jaquaize Pettaway (Second Team Offense), and Cypress Park High School junior linebacker Harold Perkins (Second Team Defense).
“It is no surprise to me that CFISD is well represented on the All-Greater Houston Football Team,” said McCaig, who has led the Cougars since 2002. “We have exceptional talent in this district and our communities have very high expectations for all of our programs. We receive tremendous support from our central and school administrators and are afforded all the resources we need to serve our students and our teams.”
