Tomaz Hilton, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound wide receiver, from Rayen High in Youngstown, Ohio could be a player to keep an eye on this season.
going pretty good," Hilton said. "I am hearing the most from Louisville, Cincinnati, Akron, Toledo, Miami (OH), Army, Navy and Kent State."
"It is nice getting
all of the letters that invite you out to camps and things like that. I never
knew that there were so many camps out there."
Hilton is a wide framed
receiver who makes nice adjustments while plucking balls from mid air, but he
believes another aspect of his game will set him apart.
"I am very good
at blocking. I am a bigger receiver and when I lock onto a defensive back it is
usually over. I just try to go out there and by myself and play my own game."
Taking pride in being an effective blocker shows a great deal of
character, and Hilton believes that his father (Thomas Hilton) has helped mold
him into a selfless player on the field.
"My dad has always taught me
that you have to finish something that you get started. You should never give
up. Always play your hardest and do what it takes to help the team. He has
always been an inspiration to me because he has been behind me 100 percent."
Hilton was invited to a spring practice session at Akron, and he liked
what he saw of their campus while he was on the trip.
"It was a nice
trip," Hilton explained. "They took me out and showed me around the campus. I
also got to watch the practice. Everything there was really big. I was amazed at
how big everything is on a college campus."
Hilton is eager to get out
to some team camps and show people what he can do.
"I know I will
probably be at Akron and Cincinnati camps. I am also going to a camp in Columbus
in May. I am just going over all of the dates with my coach and we are deciding
which dates are the best for me."
"I know that the camps will be
important for me. You never know who is watching, so you want to do well,"
As a junior, Hilton hauled in 18 passes for around 400
yards while netting
