When we last spoke with Oliver Hinkle, he held offers from Cincinnati, Western Kentucky and Stanford. Since then he picked up another offer from Indiana and he's also very high on UCF, who continues to make a big splash in the state of Kentucky.

"Yeah, Central Florida is great," said Hinkle. "They haven't offered, but they will before the season ends. The coaching staff is the biggest thing. They really want to bring in good players and they want to win as bad as I do," he continued.

Hinkle should get another taste of winning this season at Seneca. Hinkle believes that his team can take things up another notch.

"I'm really trying to focus on my team and this football season because the team we have is really special," he said. "My expectations this season are really team goals. I want us to win our district. For me, I want to play every game hard and make a difference and be a game changer," he continued.

Hinkle said that there have been some positive changes with the Seneca program since last season.

"Seneca is going great. There are a lot of changes since last season because we don't' have the leadership we had. But there's a lot of young talent and this season we will have to depend on the young guys a lot. There will be some (new) guys you'll hear about before the season is over," he finished.
