Former Clemson star DeAndre Hopkins sets Houston Texas TD record

The Houston Texans have struggled this season but this former Clemson star is making a case for being an All-Pro and Pro Bowl selection.

In a 45-7 loss at the Jacksonville Jaguars, wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins scored the Texans’ lone touchdown on a 40-yard reception.

The touchdown gave Hopkins 12 on the season, breaking his previous franchise record of 11 in 2015.

Hopkins is honored to set the record but as the consummate teammate isn’t taking as much pride in the accomplishment due to the Texans’ 4-10 record.

“I feel like I could have had more touchdowns this year,” Hopkins said. “My record is what it is, but I’ve always put the team first and it’s a team sport. With our record is what it is, it’s hard to enjoy this.”

During his three seasons at Clemson, Hopkins caught 206 receptions for 3,020 yards and 27 touchdowns, captured an ACC title (2011) and was an first-team All-ACC selection (2012).
