Thomas Elkhoury is "Mr. John Cooper."
The senior is the first student-athlete in school history to be All-Southwest Preparatory Conference (SPC) in three sports – football, soccer and track.
He holds the school records in the 4x100, 200 and 400 relays; he's on the leadership counsel for the football team and is in the entrepreneur club.
Where does he find the time?
"My dad really stresses academics first and foremost," he said. "I have my time for sports, I come home and eat and get to my homework."
Elkhoury was born in Lebanon and lived in Japan before his parents moved to Midland, Texas and then Houston. So, he checks the box as "worldly" as well.
"My dad has worked with Schlumberger (oil and gas), so he's travelled the world," he said. "All of my family is back in Lebanon and we go there every summer. It's pretty cool to see different parts of the world and different cultures."
