Haughton Ironman Has One Offer

Haughton has a group of experienced and talented senior prospects, but only one will pull double-duty on both sides of the football. Read further to get the details on the Buccaneers' ironman, RB/OLB Marlon Seets.

There's only one player at Haughton that will pull double-duty on each of the football this fall and his name is Marlon Seets. A 5-foot-10, 210-pounder who can move (4.6 speed), Seets is both the starting running back and outside linebacker for the Buccaneers.

"We're trying to get the defense ready," said Seets, who rushed for 668 yards with nine touchdowns as a junior. "On offense, we have Dak Prescott (Mississippi State commit) and he can put the football anywhere on the field with his passing. Some colleges are recruiting me on defense, but I probably prefer offense better.

"When you make a big play on offense, it gets the crowd going and gives your team momentum. I'll just have to make the most of each touch this year."

Seets has an offer from Grambling State and he's hearing from several other schools.

"In addition to Grambling, I'm talking to Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana Tech, Alcorn State, and Northwestern State," he said. "I'm not sure what position each school is recruiting me for. Northwestern State really likes me and I think they want me on defense.

"The Grambling coaches treat me good. They're really warm. They've asked me which position I want to play. I really like what Louisiana Tech is doing. They're building on their stadium and building their program, and I like how they keep their players in line with academics. Grades are a big priority with my mom and myself."

Much is expected of Haughton and Seets this year.

"We know the expectations coming in," he said. "Our coaches have told us that we'll probably be ranked in the top five in the state when the polls come out, and we're just going to take it week-by-week.

"We're aiming for a state title - 17 weeks of football. We have Parkway in the jamboree and we played them for the district title last year. We don't like them and they don't like us. We're going to play our hardest."
