Tech on Sylvester the most

Union Grove junior Steven Sylvester understands that he will have to give up carrying the ball and solely play linebacker in college. It's something he is fine with, especially if he gets play close to home. His top five schools are all near by, and he already has offers from three of them. After his spring practice, another one could be coming.
