L-K’s Ty Patterson is Built Ford Tough
Linden-Kildare senior Ty Patterson has his share of accolades, and after a stellar performance on the football field against Hooks in week 1 he garnered another.
Patterson was named the Most Outstanding Athlete for 2A through the Built Ford Tough Texas High School Football Player of the Week Program.
In the 40-26 win over the Hornets, the tenacious tight end/linebacker recorded 25 tackles, forced a fumble, returned a fumble 99 yards for a touchdown, and returned an interception 60 yards for another touchdown.
He also caught five passes for 54 yards.
Patterson and the other selections from each class ranging from Private Schools to 6A join a long list of remarkable players recognized for their exceptional efforts.
Aside from being on the Student Council and playing football, Patterson is a multi-sport player who also plays tennis, basketball and runs track.
In its thirteenth consecutive year, Ford Motor Company’s Player of the Week program is again honoring six outstanding student-athletes each week of the 2018 regular season, recognizing one player in each of the state’s six athletic classifications.
The winners are chosen for athletic achievements on the field, as well as for outstanding scholarship and community involvement.
These players are the embodiment of Ford’s Go Further commitment.
Each week of the regular high school football season will see a new winner in the sport’s six classifications, all with hopes of ultimately becoming the Built Ford Tough Texas High School Football Player of the Year.
