OSU, Burgin Checking Each Other Out

Quarterback Brooks Burgin of Dallas (Highland Park), Texas has been doing some heady things on the football field the past season and a half as the Scots starting signal caller. In 2013, he earned District 10-4A Offensive MVP honors with 3,497 passing yards and 707 rushing yards while accounting for 50 total touchdowns.

This season Burgin has Highland Park at 6-1 overall and 3-1 in district play as they are not playing Class 6A football. Burgin has completed 114 of 186 passes so far for 1,722 yards and 14 touchdowns to 6 interceptions. He has rushed for 97 yards and six touchdowns.

Somehow Burgin and his run-pass abilities were overlooked in recruiting with Texas State offering and San Diego State coming in later. Now Oklahoma State is taking notice and Burgin is slated to make an unofficial visit by attending the homecoming game in Stillwater on Saturday against West Virginia.

"Yes sir, I got the letter with the invitation to come up and see the game on Friday," Burgin said. "I'm looking forward to going up there and seeing the game and talking to the coaches. I'll head up there on Saturday after we play at Mesquite on Friday."

Last Friday Burgin and his Highland Park teammates downed Lake Highlands 37-7 as the school celebrated its centennial and many former Scots came back including some of the top athletes in Highland Park history.

They saw Burgin run for a touchdown and throw for 237 yards on just 11 completions with a 34-yard touchdown toss to standout Anthony Frost. He also led a game busting and opponent deflating 18-play, 90-yard scoring drive that covered over eight minutes to seal the outcome.

"Lake Highlands ran the ball a lot and we did not get many possessions but I think we scored on all of them but two," Burgin said. "We also have a top runner and Steve Dieb is really good. We knew he would be good as he is fast and physical and he is a state champion wrestler so he is tough."

Dieb compliments Burgin and Frost and the passing attack as he has rushed for over 700 yards so far this season. Meanwhile, Burgin focuses on continuing to lead the Scots to wins and it appears schools are going to continue to discover he can run and pass along with directing the HP offense to wins.
