"We have been doing alright so far. We started off strong with a win over our rival, Lake Brantley. We started off pretty good, but last week we lost a close one to Edgewater 14-13. We came back this week and had a strong performance. I got back on track. I am trying to get better every game. Last week I was playing center, but then switched the line up and I moved to tackle. I have been getting used to it, I have been getting better every week."
In school, he does just as well claiming a 4.82 core GPA.
Darlington is listening to all schools and has not not cut anyone yet.
"I am not sure yet. I am cutting it down later this year. I am not really thinking about where I want to go. I definitely like Oklahoma, I like Auburn, and I like Florida State, there are a lot of schools I got to see, but I am not gonna cut anything down yet," he said.
Florida State is one of the schools Darlington likes,
"I like their offensive line; I have watched them on TV and stuff. They are a bunch of tough guys, hardnosed, a little bit undersized, because I am not the tallest guy, they have a lot of guys a little smaller and I like the way they do things," he said.
He continued about Florida State's offensive line coach, Coach Trickett.
"Florida State, I like their offensive line coach, Coach Trickett. I like the way he does things. I find him entertaining, I like him."
Darlington has been watching the Seminoles and gave his thoughts on their season.
"I watched them today against Wake Forrest. I thought they have done pretty good so far. They obviously had a tough time at Oklahoma but it seems like they rebounded. I think they will make a run in the ACC."
"Oklahoma was my favorite team growing up. My mom graduated from Oklahoma, my mom was a cheerleader there."
