Duncanville High School graduate Ray Crockett presented a NFL Golden Football to DHS Principal Carlos Meekins at a ceremony on Wednesday, January 27. Duncanville High School is being named to the Super Bowl High School Honor Roll by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell as part of the nationwide Super Bowl 50 celebration.
The NFL started the Super Bowl High School Honor Roll program to acknowledge schools and communities that have directly influenced Super Bowl history and impacted the game for the better. By being a member of the Super Bowl High School Honor Roll, DHS will receive an NFL Character Education Curriculum and is eligible to apply for a grant from the NFL Foundation to help support the school's football program.
After graduating from DHS in 1985, Crockett played for Baylor University where he was a three-year letterman and First Team All-Southwest Conference selection. Crockett was drafted to the NFL in 1989, and played for the Detroit Lions, Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs during his 14-season career.
