No Rush for Hildreth

Scout.com spoke with (League City, Tex.) Clear Creek quarterback Jarrett Hildreth after a 41-21 opening season win over Ridge Point. He was on point making the throws and had a nice running element to his game which kept the defense on its toes the entire game.

After watching League City (Tex.) Clear Creek quarterback Jarrett Hildreth from one year to the next, there were clear and distinct differences. The main thing was that work and confidence were both evident in last week's 41-21 win over Ridge Point on Thursday night.

Hildreth was solid in all phases of his game. 

"The flow of game was awesome tonight. The offensive line did really good and I want to give all the credit to them because they (Ridge Point) couldn't really stop our run tonight," Hildreth said. 

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Hildreth threw for 185 yards, a touchdown and interceptions. He ran for another 24 yards, though that number is skewed some seeing that he had a couple of sacks that ate away some of his yards. 

That was a key element in the game, Hildreth's ability to not only buy time by getting out of the packet, but finding opportunities to pick up key first downs turning scrambles in positive yards.

"I thought my running was good tonight. I worked the whole off season on my feet, running and getting up field and stuff and I think it (the work) paid off tonight," Hildreth said. "I was able to get out there pretty good. Now let's see what I can do the next couple weeks."

It looks as though now that the tone is set and Hildreth will likely continue to improve and build on the opening night win. Based on talking with him postgame, he seems to be all-in and focused on leading to the to a deep playoff run.

One thing that he is not too worried about is football recruiting. Though he holds some offers, no visits or major activity has taken place over the last couple of weeks. Houston, Utah and Colorado State are the offers he has at the moment.

One program is showing more interest than the others. 

"The closest I'm with right now is with Colorado State, but that's it so far," Hildreth said. Nothing is really going on right now. I'm just going to get into practice and go week by week. With recruiting, I'm just letting it flow."
