Lark Has Early Looks has an update on Bellaire wide receiver Courtney Lark from Houston, Texas. He was the go-to guy in the Bellaire passing attack as the team pulled out a 31-28 win last Friday night. Now Lark looks to continue playing well and at the same time attract a few more college coaches as well.

It was all about being productive.

That was the approach of Houston (Tex.) Bellaire wide receiver Courtney Lark, who was the team's go-to guy in the 31-28 win over Westside last weekend in the regular season finale. On a night where Bellaire didn't pull out all of its weapons, the sophomore playmaker Lark was able to shine.

But clearly he holds himself to a higher standard. 

"First I started bad, but second half I got my head straight. And I was able to catch most of my passes," Lark said. 

For the 6-foot-2, 175-pound Lark, most meant catching eight passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns. Down the stretch he was able to haul in some impressive passes on third-and-medium to keep the chains moving and the drive alive. Most of those passes were on the 10-yard out routes.

This is something that the future star of the class of 2016 has been doing for many years now, despite the fact that he is still a younger varsity player.

"Those third-down catches is something I've worked on. When I was younger, my uncle used to throw me passes like that so that I could learn how to keep my feet in and focus on the ball," Lark said. "Tonight I was able to get a few of those passes and catch the ball."

Catches like those will for sure get Lark a look or two. Of course, that has already started happening. For now, schools in the Big 10 and Big 12 have already shown some interest and it will only be a matter of time before others follow this lead.

"I know Nebraska really likes me. Also Baylor and a few others I can't think of right now," Lark said. "I have not made any games yet, but I plan too. Also, I like Texas Tech because it is an ‘Air Raid' offense. I do like Baylor and Nebraska too."
