"We are 9-0 right now and we have our last regular season game this Friday," added Daniel Hood. "We have already clinched our Region. We are Region champs. We beat a tough team in Kingston last Friday. We went for two and won the game."
How has Daniel's season
gone at TE?
"It has been good. I have enjoyed it. It has become more

to sign, or is he going into the official visit process with a true open mind?
