Sexton Among This Weekend's Visitors

Collin Sexton was in a really good mood when we talked to him Thursday night as Abilene (Kan.) High School ran its record to 14-4 on the season and clinched a conference championship with a snow makeup win over second-place Lomega. Now Sexton is looking forward to entering the world of college football recruiting when he visits Oklahoma State this weekend on the Cowboys' second Junior Day.

"My brother visited Oklahoma State and he told me to go and have fun," said Collin Sexton. "My brother told me it was state-of-the-art and it was really a cool place."

Sexton's brother is Kansas State freshman Curry Sexton, who after a gray-shirt fall entered K-State for the spring semester. Like his older brother, Collin was a jack-of-all-trades for Abilene this past football season playing slot receiver, safety, and cornerback plus playing special teams and returning kicks.

He had more than 600 receiving yards and seven touchdowns, and picked off four passes on defense. He also runs track for Abilene running the 4x100 meter relay and also doing the triple jump and long jump.

"I'm going to Oklahoma State this weekend and then Kansas State the next weekend," said Collin of his schedule. "I don't think basketball will give me any time to hit any others. We should be seeded second in substate and should go to the state tournament.

"I'm going to Oklahoma State this weekend with Cody Whitehair (Abilene teammate and OL/DL that was recruited by Oklahoma State and signed with Kansas State), but I will go through everything by myself because Cody can't do anything because he signed a letter with another Big 12 school," continued Sexton.

"Yeah, his uncle is Kip Racy with the Cowboy Network and we are staying with him. It will be a lot of fun. I can't wait because I saw my brother go through recruiting and I knew I wanted to play college football since I was a (high school) freshman."

Sexton said he has been communicating with assistant recruiting coordinator Scott Yielding at Oklahoma State and with wide receivers coach Michael Smith at Kansas State. He admits that K-State runs in the family.

"Yeah, my mom and dad and now my brother and sister are both there," he said. "Then there have been a lot of aunts and uncles."

Sexton said he is thinking about business and journalism as possible majors in school. He runs a 4.6 in the forty and has a 225-pound bench press and 325-pound squat max. It is hard to get in the weight room when you are going in three sports.
