Sharp Ready to Compete

Scout.com has an update on Summer Creek quarterback Aaron Sharp from Humble, Texas. He was recently honored as a TD Club of Houston nominee for Offensive Player of the Year. After a successful season, Sharp, a Kansas State commit, walks away with a good feeling about his career. Now it is time for his game to go to the next level.

Playing at a high level is nothing new for Humble (Tex.) Summer Creek quarterback Aaron Sharp. Since he has been playing varsity football, he has very few losses on his resume, which includes an 11-1 finish in his final year as a prep athlete. 

He and the team had much higher expectations for this past season, but Sharp still walked away with a good attitude.

"We kind of fell short. We did good, but it wasn't the goal we were looking for," Sharp said. "But we did win our district championship so we can't keep our heads down. We have to look at the bright side. We had a productive season, but things happen."

And what happened is that now the bar has been raised for the program as a whole. No longer will this team be viewed as the "new guys" or any other title like that. It was the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Sharp and his class who is responsible for that. 

Recently Sharp was recognized by the Houston Touchdown Club as he was a finalist for the Offensive Player of the Year for the Greater Houston area. Now, his high school career comes to a close and the new chapter begins.

In early July 2013, Sharp and his family decided that he was going to take his talents to Kansas State to play quarterback in the Big 12. Just a few weeks ago, he took an official visit there to get a closer look.

"I took a visit this past weekend to Kansas State and it was real good. I got a chance to get a more inside look at the program, you know things you can't see on an unofficial visit," Sharp said." I got to talk with the coaches and look at playbooks. I got the chance to see the offense practice and everything. It's a real family program and one that will help you be a better person on and off the field."

That should bode well for Sharp as he is obviously a great athlete, but word is that he is equally impressive off the field too. On the field, he accounted for just over 2,700 yards and 30 total touchdowns. 

And just as he is used to winning at Summer Creek, Sharp looks for more of the same once in Manhattan, Kan.

" It's a great tradition at Kansas State and it's a winning program. If you want to play big-time football, Kansas State is one of those programs," Sharp said. "The coaches told me to come in and compete. I'm looking forward to doing that."
