Army All-American Tren'Davion Dickson sets Texas state record for TD receptions

By

With a nickname like TD derived from his first name, perhaps it was inevitable: Tren’Davion Dickson has become the state recordholder for career receiving touchdowns. The wide receiver already holds the national record for single-season receiving touchdowns, with 35 in his junior campaign at Navasota in 2014.

A Baylor commit, Dickson scored his 74th career receiving touchdown during Navasota’s area round playoff matchup with Jasper High. His scoring grab pushed him one in front of legendary University of Texas wide receiver Jordan Shipley.

Dickson’s ascension to the top of the state records always felt like a fait accompli if Navasota could stay alive in the playoffs for long enough. As it turns out, the magical number of playoff games required was just two games, with TD’s record TD coming early in Friday’s game.

The record will bring additional attention to Dickson’s campaign for the U.S. Army All-American Player of the Year award. Dickson is a U.S. Army All-American and is planning for a future career at Baylor, where he’ll slot in as part of Art Briles’ extreme spread offense.

Now he’s both a national and state recordholder, to boot.
