HOUSTON — Former Pinson Valley star Zach Cunningham took to the field this Sunday and started at inside linebacker in the Houston Texans’ 16-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers. Cunningham made a career-high 14 tackles in the game. Throughout four games this season, Cunningham is tied with Justin Reid for the most solo tackles on the team with 26.
During a 13-12 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in week two, Cunningham led the Texans with nine tackles and recorded his first sack of the year.
“He played a great football game,” Houston head coach Bill O’Brien told the Houston Chronicle after the game. “He was all over the place. I haven’t even met with the coaching staff, but I assume he will probably get a game ball. If he doesn’t, I’ll give him one.”
