Windmiller eyeing senior season

With so many key components of what was, last season, an impressive Shawnee (KS) Mill Valley Jaguars squad returning, it's understandable that expectations are high as the 2012 season nears.

Mill Valley is currently in the midst of its summer team camp, and senior quarterback Skyler Windmiller said things are progressing smoothly.

"Even the coaches are noticing, too," he said. "We're just so much further ahead than we were at this point last year."

"One of the main (goals) is playing the season and getting into the playoffs, and then making a deep run into the playoffs," Windmiller added. "In Mill Valley's history it hasn't really happened yet, so we're looking to be the first team to get that done."

Recently, the strong-armed signal-caller took a pair of recruiting visits to the state of Illinois, for camps with both Illinois State and Southern Illinois.

Both went well, and he was particularly impressed with the Southern Illinois campus.

"I liked it a lot," Windmiller said. "It was a lot bigger than I thought it would be. That's always impressive to exceed expectations, and it was really nice."

Many programs are showing interest in him, but all seem to be saying the same thing, Windmiller explained. They want to see more of him, and gather tape from his senior season.

Windmiller doesn't look at that as a setback, however. He sees it as an opportunity.

"I don't look at it as pressure," he said. "It's more of an incentive kind of deal. If I do good these first couple of games and make an impression, good things will happen."
