·2 min read

A lineman throwing a touchdown pass plus some other outstanding performances on the basketball court highlight this week's Caller-Times Athlete of the Week voting.

The Caller-Times is taking weekly nominations and will release a list of finalists for the High School Athlete of the Week each Tuesday.

Students in all varsity sports are eligible to be nominated. The poll will close on Thursday and the winners will be announced Friday each week.

Flour Bluff offensive lineman, and Virginia Tech commit, Johnny Dickson has been playing both sides of the ball the last few weeks and his role was expanded in last week's regional semifinal victory against Gregory-Portland. Dickson threw a touchdown pass in the 47-44 victory, along with recovering a fumble on defense.

Veterans Memorial linebacker ER Dedase totaled 12 tackles in the Eagles regional semifinal victory against McAllen Memorial.

On the hardwood, Robstown's Zoe Hunt knocked down six 3-pointers in a victory for the Lady Pickers against Santa Gertrudis Academy.

Nominations are due by 5 p.m. Monday and can be submitted through email at ctsports@caller.com, by messaging the Caller-Times through its Facebook page, or on Twitter @CallerSports.
