Multiple Teams · Tiger Roundballer Mikal Reeves Named Wendy’s Heisman Winner

Senior Tiger basketball player Mikal Reeves was recently named the Wendy’s High School Heisman winner for Daingerfield High School.


Wendy’s has honored more than 600,000 of the nation’s most esteemed high school seniors who share Wendy’s values of giving back to their communities, treating people with respect, continuing education and excelling on the athletic field.

Mikal was tabbed last year as District 14-AAA basketball’s Most Valuable Player as voted on by the district coaches.  He was a key spoke in the Tigers winning a second consecutive district title and making an appearance in the Quarterfinals Round of the Texas UIL basketball playoffs.

Mikal not only excels on the court but in the classroom as well.  He is currently ranked #2 in his senior class, is a member of the National Honor Society, and is listed on the 2017-18 1st six weeks DHS senior “A” honor roll. Mikal regularly attends the weekly meetings of the Fellowship Of Christian Athletes. 

“Mikal has been a varsity basketball player since his freshman year and he has always been a pleasure to coach.  He comes to practice everyday with that smile and gives 110% effort on and off the court.  His work ethic shows in his academics as well and I feel he will be successful in whatever he chooses to do,” said longtime head varsity basketball coach Curtis Lewis.

As a School Winner, Mikal will receive a Wendy’s High School Heisman letterman patch and certificate in early 2018. In addition, he will move on for the chance to become a State Finalist.
