we have a good chance to make the playoffs. That is what we are shooting for."
your school ever made the playoffs? "No sir."
Is your school
a relatively new school? "I think we have only been playing varsity football
for 6 or 7 years, so yes sir."
Talk about your first game of the season?
"It was a close game. We beat Grapevine 41-35. We were up 20-8 at half. They
scored 28 unanswered points in the second half. They were a tough offensive team.
We had to keep answering as an offense. I threw for 327 yards and 5 TD's."
this past Friday's game? "We beat Arlington Martin. Again, we got out to
a big lead and they came back. It was a good game. I threw for like 380 yards
and 3 TD's."
Who do you face this Friday? "LV Bell."
play in Class 5A classification, right? "Yes sir."
have you seen in your game this season? "Well, you know about me having to
sit out and all, so I really have nothing to compare it to because this is my
first year to play varsity ball. But I think my footwork, overall body strength,
arm strength, and I have gotten quicker. That is what I have worked on the hardest
Have you received any weekly awards this fall? "I
was up for Player of the Week in Game 1 for (Dallas) Metro , and I was the Top
Passer in Metro in Game 2."
How has your confidence grown this year
due to your early season success? "I have always been pretty confident in
my abilities. It definitely helped to start off on the right foot though. I just
try to stay humble, but our team's confidence is soaring right now. We have a
lot of good vibes around here."
Thinking back on the recruitment process;
what was the number one reason you choose Ole Miss? "Opportunity. I have
a chance to go in there and get some early playing time. That was definitely the
When was the last time you were in contact with someone
from the Ole Miss staff? "Probably a week or so ago. I call Coach Mazzone
Talk about your relationship with the Ole Miss staff. "Me
and Coach Mazzone have been talking a while. I probably talk to Coach O every
other time I talk to Coach Mazzone. They have been busy a lot lately, so I have
not talked to either quite as often, but I certainly understand."
you get a chance to watch the Ole Miss/Memphis game on TV? "Yea, it was pretty
exciting. Their defense played well. Hey a win is a win, they just did not put
up many points."
Do you still have other colleges actively calling
you? "The coaches from Colorado and Stanford have been calling pretty regularly,
but the other schools pretty much backed off when I committed to Ole Miss."
colleges have offered you a scholarship? "Colorado, Illinois, Baylor, UTEP,
Arizona, Oklahoma State, Stanford, and of course Ole Miss."
still take your official visits? "I will talk to my parents, and we will
see as the year goes on. But as of right now, I doubt I will visit anybody else."
you still feel 100% committed to Ole Miss? "No doubt, yes sir."
is school going? "It is going very good. I have an overall 3.1 GPA, and I
took the new SAT test a few months back. I forgot exactly what I made on it, but
it was plenty enough to qualify."
