"I Can See Myself Playing There"-T. Armstrong

4-Star quarterback prospect and 2012 Nebraska Commit, Tommy Armstrong is coming off quite a season. In his team's 28-6 win over Brandeis on Friday in the UIL Texas State Playoffs Armstrong had 189 rushing yards including a 47-yard touchdown run to give Steele a 14-0 first quarter lead.

"Just being to come out this last week to work for this game," Armstrong said. "We capitalized on the little things we needed to capitalize on. We just made the best of it and earned every yard. I owe it all to my offensive line they made plays for us. We just have to move onto next week and drive on from there. Our goal is to get better and better each week and make it to the state championship game."

Although Armstrong is committed to Nebraska, the 6'1 205-pound senior admits that other schools are continuing to reach out to him.

"I'm (still) getting letters from other schools here and there," Armstrong said. "But, I'm just not interested. I made my mind up in where I want to go and I'm just going to focus on a state championship now."

When the question of how his official visit from back in September went Armstrong immediately grinned from ear to ear. The nation's No. 12 ranked quarterback had the chance to watch the Huskers take on Washington on the 17th for a 51-38 win in Memorial Stadium.

"I enjoyed myself and liked what I saw," Armstrong said. "I was just head-over-heels for Nebraska on the visit. That's just where I want to be. I can just see myself playing there. I'm just looking forward to being in a community just like this one where it is all about football. It's like an NFL team there. Just got to keep improving and improving and maybe (I'll) make it big time one day."

Armstrong and the Knights will take on Alexander High School this Friday in the third round of the UIL Texas Playoffs in Laredo, Texas.
