Xavier, how's your season going?
"It's going pretty good. We need to get our defense playing better – which we've done this week in practice."
Obviously you are making a lot of plays from your QB spot. Are you playing any defense?
"Yes, I play Free Safety in situations where we need a key stop on defense. Rice is recruiting me to play there too."
With the numbers you are putting up on offense have you and the (Rice) coaches talked about playing QB at all?
"No not really. I'm just playing football right now. They said that I might have a chance to play early because injuries happen and they might need me anyway."
What team do you consider your toughest opponent in Montgomery's district?
"Probably Brenham because we haven't beaten them. Caney Creek matches up with us pretty well though so we really want to beat them too."
You have a former teammate at Rice Jake Hicks. Do you guys talk much?
"Yeah we talked at homecoming, but not a whole lot about football. He's red shirting at Rice."
Do you have an official visit lined up for Rice yet?
"No not yet. I've already been there a couple times. I went to the Spring Game there."
Rice is struggling a bit this season, how do you feel about the Owls and your commitment?
"I talked to Coach (Craig) Naivar today and he put Coach Bailiff on after we talked. Coach Bailiff told me he was excited to have me coming to join them next year because they are trying to build a good program there. He said injuries had been a big problem for them this year and that several of the starters have been hurt. He asked me if I still felt good about coming to Rice and I told him yes, definitely."
Ok Xavier, good luck tomorrow night and with the rest of the season. We'll check back with you in a couple weeks to see how your season is going.
