HOUSTON -Houston Football head coach Tony Levine named Dallas Blacklock the program's Director of High School Relations and Tory Teykl its Associate Director of Operations on Monday. Blacklock comes to Houston after spending the last two seasons as head coach at Houston's Sharpstown High School while Teykl has been a part of the Houston Athletics Marketing department the last four years.
"I am excited to have Dallas and Tory join our program and fill valuable roles," said Levine. "Both have ties to the City of Houston and have a passion for our program and the game of football."
As Sharpstown's head coach, Blacklock compiled a two-year record of 16-7 including playoff berths both seasons. Blacklock's 2012 team finished the year undefeated in district play and advanced to the second round of the Texas state playoffs. During his two-year stint at Sharpstown, 19 players went on to play football on the collegiate level.
A graduate of Sharpstown, Blacklock had previously been a part of the school's coaching staff as an assistant for two seasons and spent one season as an assistant at Fort Bend Marshall before being elevated to head coach at Sharpstown prior to the 2011 season.
A Houston native, Blacklock graduated from McPherson College in May of 2003 with a degree in Religion and Philosophy. A four-year letterman as a defensive back, Blacklock earned NAIA second team All-America honors as a senior while also earning All-KCAC second team honors in 2002 and 2003.
Teykl joined the Houston Athletics Department in 2009 as an Assistant Director for Marketing and Promotions before being promoted to Director of Marketing and Promotions in 2011.
The Rosenberg, Texas, native earned her bachelor's degree in Business Administration and Marketing from Texas A&M in 2007. She later received her Masters of Science in Sports Management from A&M in 2009. During that time, Teykl was as a student assistant for the Texas A&M football program where she was involved in recruiting.
Upon the completion of her master's degree, she worked as a Sports Assistant for the Convention and Visitors Bureau for the city of College Station.
