Hopkins Honored at Chamber Luncheon

         Trey Hopkins, a senior at North Shore Senior High School, was recognized as the Galena Park ISD Student of the Month during the February North Channel Area Chamber of Commerce luncheon in the Monument Room at San Jacinto College North.
         Hopkins, who has committed to the University of Texas to play football, has a 4.716 GPA on a 5.0 scale and is ranked sixth in his graduating class of 923 students. Hopkins was named Offensive Player of the Year for the Greater Houston Area by the Touchdown Club of Houston at the 30th Annual High School Awards Dinner. He was also a finalist in the annual Greater Houston High School Scholar-Athlete of the Year competition, sponsored by the Touchdown Club of Houston.
         He has made the All-District football team for three consecutive years, was named to the Touchdown Club preseason All-Greater Houston team and played in the prestigious U.S. Army All-American Bowl in January in San Antonio.
         Hopkins serves on the Principal’s Student Advisory Board, the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Board and is a member of the National Honor Society and Chess Club. He is a junior deacon at Mount Olive Baptist Church and plays the clarinet and saxophone and sings in the choir.
         "Trey is a tremendously talented young man who does not shy away from putting in the extra work required to make him a great player," said David Aymond, head coach of the North Shore Mustangs. "Although he is a great football player he's an even better young man. He has the greatest sense of right and wrong of any athlete I've ever coached."
