"We played Cypress Falls this past weekend. Considering what happened to our country I thought it was good for me that we played a game. We won the game 28-18 and I played pretty well. I was getting triple teamed the whole night, but I just tried to beat the nose guard and be quicker than the guards. However, most of the time I could get past the center and I would have both guards coming down on me. I finished the game with five tackles and one fumble recovery."

"We are 1-1 on the year. Our first game was against Houston North Shore and they are the number team in the area. We lost that game 35-7. Our defense got tired in the game and we let down in the second half. I finished that game with seven tackles."

"Nothing has really changed that much in recruiting. I am really focusing on my school work and high school football. A lot of coaches call, but I usually have homework and I don't talk to many of them. I am still interested in Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and LSU. I will most likely visit those four schools."

"I favor Texas slightly at the moment, because I have been there and met all the coaches. I really like the Texas coaches."

I also went to Texas A&M, but that was for the NIKE camp and I really didn't a chance to know their coaches. I might take an unofficial visit to College Station."

"I will probably have to take an official visit to OU, because it's too far for an unofficial. I would like to make it up there for a game. Same goes for LSU."
