While it's a process that is certain to get hectic over the next year and a half, Heyman has watched three older brothers go through it and explained that it's something that he's not ready to spend time focusing on.
"It's different for everybody," he said. "I'll just handle it as it comes, but right now it's not that important."
What is important is the current football season for his Bulldog team, which currently sits atop the Associated Press 4A state rankings with a 3-0 record.

Heyman will likely see a few snaps at wide receiver this fall and anticipates joining the Male rushing attack as a senior.
"We lose Beaumont after this year and replacing him is going to be tough," he explained. "There are a few of us that will try and do it next year."
Last week Heyman was named to the Scout.com Top 100 juniors to watch list.
"It's nice to get that kind of stuff," he said. "I'd rather come out of nowhere and surprise people. The more hype you get the more you have to back it up. Once people know who you are you have to play like you have something to lose, so I know that I have to always play hard."
