I am getting more excited about this whole thing now. I mean, I think
that last week it all hadn't hit me yet. All the hype has died down after I made
it public that I was committing to OSU, which is good. I can finally have time
to think and do things without having this burden of what school to chose and
everything. It feels great to be able to know what my future holds for certain
and know that others know it too. It is funny that so many people in
So, the relief is great, because now I can concentrate on my high school season more. Two-a-days have already started, and I have to be there at , so I am getting a lot of rest during the day. When you get up that early, daytime naps are where it's at. We aren't hitting in practice yet, but I really don't have to worry about that anyway. Except a lot of times guys go for me anyway and the coaches get on them. It is funny because they are always saying, "Coach, if you don't want me to hit him, then why do you make him wear a green jersey? Green means ‘GO!'"
Actual classes start next week and that is good because it means that the season is closer. I only have two classes in the mornings and then the rest of my day, until practice, is free. My mama told me when I was a freshman that I needed to get all of my hard classes out of the way first when I was a freshman and sophomore so my last two years would be a walk in the park. I listened to her, and it was the best advice I have ever gotten. Last semester I only had three classes and this semester I just have two, so I am pretty happy about how easy it is going to be. Summer school helped to. It has put me in a position to make some good decisions about my future.
Some people go about things like, "Well, I know that I have a future in football, I know where I am going, and I know that I can contend for playing time, so I don't need to worry about this last high school season since I already made my verbal." I am not like that. That is a waste of time and a waste of talent, too. If you are gonna think like that, then you shouldn't even be playing, you know? I owe it to my school now to go out and try to win a championship, and I am not going to slack off because my college dream is now coming true.
It is all happening pretty fast, my mama was pretty happy I made the decision already. She has been taking a lot of quiet time off to herself now, which she deserves. She was like right in there with me, making sure that I wasn't being taken advantage of and giving me the best advice anyone could ever give. It wore her out, so she is kinda taking it easy now, she keeps telling me how glad she is that everything is quiet around here now.
So, yeah, I guess from what I said earlier about summer school and having
only two classes left, you probably
can guess that I will be coming to
So, yeah, in January I will pack up and move and get started. My mama is
like, "I won't ever see you again," and I am not gonna even deny that I am a
mama's boy. Everybody knows that, it will be hard, but I know that if anything
ever goes wrong, my mama is driving up to
First high school game is Sept. 5, so I am ready. I'll talk more about the college stuff when it gets closer. Right now, I need to go help my team win a championship…
Come back for more from Bobby next week! Two-a-days get more intense, and it is the road to a Texas State Championship for OSU's prize commit!

North Shore (Houston, Texas)
Yet another talented Texan signal caller in what has to be one of the best years for quarterbacks the state has ever produced. With three of our top six and a few others from the state that still have a solid shot at making the EA SPORTS Elite 11, Texas is definitely the place to be when looking for a standout quarterback. Reid is big-time athlete with a great arm and a huge upside He reminds us a lot of Donovan McNabb athletically at the same stage.
As a junior, Reid threw for 1,485 yards and 13 touchdowns while also rushing for 776 yards and 16 more scores. He shows up very well on film boasting a strong arm, great escape-ability and can really run. He has clocked a 10.7 in the 100m and ran a 4.46 in the 40 while jumping 35 inches in the vertical at the Nike Camp in College Station (Texas).
