This year marked the fourth annual Houston Sports Awards. The prestigious event, which was held in April, celebrates Houston's top athletes, both past and present.
Houston is a city known for its incredible sporting talent, and the Houston Sports Awards honor that talent with a world-class event and custom trophy. Award categories include the Sportsmanship Award, Athlete of the Year and Moment of the Year.
This year’s event kicked off with the inaugural celebrity golf tournament and concluded with a star-studded gala. The highlight of the night was the unveiling of the Houston Sports Hall of Fame. The first inductee class was also announced and includes Earl Campbell, Hakeem Olajuwon and Nolan Ryan.
The grand trophy is a rising, sweeping form, capped with an elegant star shape. It is an iconic and unique sculpture that meets the prestige of the great talent it aims to honor. The award is precision-cast in metal using a proprietary process. The final form is plated in a high-end silver chrome that is hand-polished to a mirror-like finish.
