Black Coming off a Successful Summer

Chris Black, a 2012 wide receiver, was a last-minute addition for Friday Night Lights last month and turned out to be the highlight of his summer. The 5-11 and 170-pound playmaker from Jacksonville (FL) First Coast holds early offers from Clemson, Florida State, Georgia and South Carolina and will be one of the top wideouts in the state of Florida for the 2012 class.

"We have been working out as a team over the summer since June 21 even though most of the other players and I often get together by ourselves and have our own little workouts," Chris Black said. "Overall our summer program has been great and we have been to a few camps and 7-on-7 tournaments and have gotten a few great additions to the team that's going to improve our chances of winning state. The highlight of my summer was definitely having a chance to go to Friday Night Lights at Florida and compete with some of the best."
