"I hate losing and feel like I could have somethings the last few weeks back, especially interceptions," said Pike. "I played alright (on Friday) I had to throw some balls away. Their defense was really tough and brought seven guys every time. But, I ran for 106 yards and two touchdowns. I also threw for 230 yards and two touchdowns."
Dixie Heights is off to a 1-2 start and will face off against Conner this week.
Pike is one of the most highly sought after recruits in the 2012 class. Just last week, Midwest Regional Manger Allen Trieu reported that Pike had picked up offers from Wisconsin and Clemson, to go along with Florida, Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Purdue, Oklahoma State, Iowa, and many others.
"Pretty much everybody has offered besides USC and Notre Dame. Florida, Bama, Auburn, Tennessee, are all really recruiting me hard now," said Pike. "I talk with them everyday almost. But, Florida St, Oregon, Texas Tech, Penn State, Pitt, Rutgers have all pretty much gave verbals so its really a blessing. Mail is crazy since September 1st, I have probably received over 150 pieces of mail."
Iowa outlook: It doesn't appear at this point Pike has much interest in Iowa. It might be because he doesn't know much about the Hawkeyes or the fact that he grew up in SEC country. HawkeyeInsider.com will continue to monitor his recruitment and let Iowa fans know if anything happens when it comes to the Iowa front.
