"It was a tough ending because we were expecting more," Wesley said. "The playoffs, that was our goal and we came up short. There's not a whole lot more to it. We didn't get it done."
Steven Wesley did plenty on his end. Despite drawing constant attention from opposing tight ends and fullbacks for help his opposing tackles, Wesley had a strong senior season.
"I had 62 tackles and eight sacks on the year," he said. "It was OK. I just wish we were still playing. Now I'm just relaxing for a bit before I go back to lifting full time. I'll go through the recruiting stuff and then start preparing for track season."
On the recruiting front, Wesley is being recruited nationally. A passing test score is a big reason why he's being recruited as hard as any defensive end in the state right now. His visit schedule is now full.
"I've been to Ohio State and Mississippi," he said. "I'm going to Alabama this week. Ohio State, they have a great program with lots of tradition. Mississippi made me feel real comfortable. I enjoyed it a lot there. Alabama, I'm looking forward to checking it out. They're having a great year on defense. They're doing something right up there."
His final two visits will go to in-state powers Miami and Florida.
"I got Miami on December 9th and Florida in January," he said. "Miami offered me not too long ago. Their defense was great against Virginia Tech and has been all year. I like their style a lot. They have a lot of speed and they know how to fly around and make plays. That's how I like to play. Florida, those guys have been on me hard from the start. I'll know after my last visit."
