    HOUSTON– University of Houston freshman hurdler, Eric Futch, was named to the 2012 Track And Field News High School Boys All-America Team, announced Monday.

    The award marks the second straight year that Futch, the 2012 Gatorade Athlete of the Year, has earned a spot on the list. This year however, Track and Field News named Futch as the nation’s top 400 meter hurdler, compared to being ranked fifth last season.

    The Darby, Pa. native, put together an impressive senior campaign by winning at the Penn Relays and the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association Track and Field Championships. Futch capped off his senior season by winning the 400 meter hurdles at both the 2012 IAAF World Juniors Championships and the 2012 USATF Juniors Championships.

    “Eric put together an outstanding season in 2012,” head coach Leroy Burrell said. “Very few people have ever accomplished what he did last year. It’s a great personal honor for him, and we are proud of what he has accomplished. We are excited about his future and very pleased that he is a Cougar.”

    The complete list of the All-America Team can be found here.

    Futch and the Cougars will open their 2012-13 indoor season when they travel to College Station, Texas to take part in the Texas A&M Reveille Invitational on Saturday.
