Highland Park head coach Randy Allen has honored Tom Landry for years by wearing a coat, tie, and fedora on the sidelines. Now the Landry Award committee has honored Allen.
The legendary HP coach added to the awards in his trophy case this week, when he was honored with the Landry Award Coach of the Year during a ceremony at Communities Foundation of Texas.
The award is given to a coach that not only wins on the field, but exemplifies Christian values and teaches life skills as well through a commitment to leadership, selflessness, maturity, respect, and kindness. The recipient is chosen in part by the leadership of the DFW chapter of Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
The Landry Award also gave its player award on Monday to Allen quarterback Kyler Murray, who will try to lead the Eagles to consecutive state titles on Saturday.
