Crosby’s Destin signs with TSU

By BOBBY HORN JR.

CROSBY– One of the top wide receivers in the Houston area will soon be calling Texas Southern University Home.

This past week, on National Signing Day, Chris Destin committed in writing to play football at TSU. Destin, who also plays basketball for Crosby, is also expected to be a two-sport athlete at TSU as well.

A former free safety, Destin was moved to wide receiver by first-year Cougars Coach Larry Haynes. “Chris goes for the football, has great hands and great routes,” said Haynes, “The most important skill for a successful receiver is being a great route runner. He catches the ball at the high point and jukes a lot of guys out of position.”

This past season Destin, who was First Team All District for wide receivers, led the district in catches with 71, receiving yards with 1,188 and touchdown catches with 15.

Destin said that he chose TSU because it was close to home. “My family has always supported me since I was little. I’m sure they will now too. Most of my success is keeping God first. I just go out there and play my hardest.”

Haynes said that the athletic department was proud to see Destin earn the scholarship that comes with playing at TSU. “We feel good when a fine young man like Chris get a scholarship to help him continue his education.”
