When the Glenda Dawson High School Eagles football team faced its district rival Pearland Oilers, the Eagles coach depended on his kicker to win the game. With a 30-yard field goal with 1 minute and eight seconds remaining in the game, the Eagles beat the Oilers 38-35, thanks to kicker Claire Jeffress, your Greater Houston Honda Dealers Player of the Week.

The win for the Eagles gave the team a 5-1 record.
