Scout in the Midlands
Laquvionte Gonzalez – 5-10/160 - WR – Cedar hill (Texas) - 2013

Recruiting: Committed to Texas A&M
Scouting Report: There is no doubt that Gonzalez was the fastest player on the field and he can get to top speed in a hurry. He wastes no time dancing. He picks his hole and gets it down the field. He scored a rushing touchdown, caught a touchdown pass and returned a kick 91-yards for score in Cedar Hill's 54-28 win -- showing his versatility as a prospects. Look for his college team to use him in a similar way. He is a player you want to get the ball to.

Quincy Adeboyejo – 6-3/175 - WR – Cedar hill (Texas) - 2013

Recruiting: Committed to Texas A&M
Scouting Report: Adeboyejo simply dominated with a break out game. He worked deep, middle and short routes and turned them all in to big-time plays. He is an excellent route runner with nice size. He will remind Cedar Hill fans of Dezmon Briscoe. He is a good blocker and takes just as much pride in securing a block on the edge as making the play himself. He surpassed his entire statistical totals from the 2011 with 184 receiving yards and three touchdowns in the contest.

Damion Hobbs – 6-3/225 - QB – Cedar hill (Texas) - 2013

Recruiting: Committed to Arkansas State
Scouting Report: Hobbs was an interesting prospect coming in to the season. Everyone knows he is a great athlete, but he worked hard in the off-season throwing the football to become a more polished passer and it showed. He completed over 60% of his throws and showed the ability to deliver an accurate deep ball. He was also a threat to score on the ground at anytime with the ball in his hands. He is not blazing fast, but a savvy runner. He scored 5 TDs.

Jared Rayford – 5-9/190 - RB – Cedar hill (Texas) - 2013

Recruiting: Interest from Rice and UTEP
Scouting Report: Hits the line with a full head of steam every time. he gashed the middle of the Denton Guyer defense and it was his tough running inside that started to open the edges for the speed of the team. With what he is able to do in the middle of the field combined with the playmakers on the outside the Cedar Hill offense is going to be very dangerous.

Brandon Harris – 6-1/185 - WR – Cedar hill (Texas) - 2013

Recruiting: Committed to Iowa State
Scouting Report: Harris caught all the balls that were thrown to him. He runs with power after the catch and is a dedicated blocker. He came right out of the gate manhandling the corner opposite of him. He was open on a few routes deep down the field, but it just did not work out for him to have that huge shining moment in this one. The potential is there.

Isaiah Lewis – 6-1/190 - OLB/S – Cedar hill (Texas) - 2013

Recruiting: Hearing from Iowa State, Iowa, New Mexico State, UTSA
Scouting Report: Lewis had a strong opener and is well on his way to making way more defensive standout plays than he did one year ago. He had a few tackles that were touchdown saving and is just a solid football player. The knock on him has been that he is 'tweener', but whether he plays safety or linebacker in college he will be able to get the job done, and that is all that counts.

Marcus Green – 6-1/170 - CB – Cedar hill (Texas) - 2014

Recruiting: Early interest from Iowa State, LSU, Missouri, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M
Scouting Report: Coaches love big, versatile corners, so it makes sense that Green should be on the verge of some major offers really soon. He has that long wingspan that you can not coach and the quick feet and flexibility to go with it. Was matched up with Arizona State commit Ellis Jefferson for much of the game and made him a non-factor. Also showed the ability to come up and lay a lick.

Larry Hill – 5-9/205 - RB – Cedar hill (Texas) - 2014

Recruiting: Early interest from Alabama, Baylor, Houston, Texas A&M, LSU
Scouting Report: Did not get a chance to break a big run, but got his number called nine times and racked up 33 yards on the ground. he is nice change of pace back. he has a low center gravity and can pound it in the middle of the field. He did not get to show it, but judging his cut and go he has playmaking ability.

Tadarrian Luster – 5-10/170 - S – Cedar hill (Texas) - 2014

Scouting Report: Probably had double digit tackles heading in to halftime. Not afraid to come up and lay a lick from his safety spot and also had a key interception. May have been the defensive player of the game for Cedar Hill. He seemed like he was everywhere. Does not have ideal size for safety, but like Lewis he makes plays.

DaMarkus Lodge – 6-2/185 - CB – Cedar hill (Texas) - 2015

Scouting Report: The first wide receiver off the bench on a team deep with talent. He has the size and skills that college coaches will covet and he is just a sophomore. He could grow in to one of the state's premiere playmakers if he keeps his head down and works hard for it. Skills are there.

Richard Moore – 6-1/195 - OLB – Cedar hill (Texas) - 2015

Scouting Report: Look for this youngster to be a big part of the Cedar Hill defense in the near future. When the team wanted to try and get some more speed on the field it was his number that was called to come in and put some pressure on the offense. He flies to the ball and has an impressive looking frame.
