Catalina Foothills footballer wins regional awardPosted: Updated:
Catalina Foothills High School's Rex Woodbury became one of 12 high school athletes around the country to win the Wendy's High School Heisman award.
The senior won the statewide award a few weeks ago for his accomplishments in track and cross country.
Wednesday he found out in a surpise pep rally that he had won an even bigger prize.
"Our region is the west which is 16 states including California and Washington. So, I knew every kid that made it that far was way qualified and I was happy that I was the state winner," said Woodbury. "But I didn't think anything else would come out of it; so, I was really happy and shocked today."
Rex will go to New York next January for the Heisman ceremony where he'll compete with 5 other boys for the national title.
