Through nine games, King has more than 1,100 yards combined rushing and passing for Waxahachie (4-5), which travels to 7-2 Mesquite Poteet tonight in the regular-season finale.
According to King, it appears that the Indians' 20-year playoff streak will come to a halt this year, even with a win this evening. Waxahachie's offense has moved the ball - the Indians are scoring greater than 32 points per game - but they've had trouble putting the brakes on opponents.
"We've been good at running the ball and we've thrown well, but our defense has needed to be better," said King, who could be recruited on either side of the ball (QB/S/WR). "We've put all of the pressure on our offense."
Indeed, the Indians have allowed more than 40 points in four games.
"I've only played quarterback this year," said King, who also saw action at safety during his sophomore season. "I've passed for around 850-900 yards and four TDs and I've run for 200 yards and two TDs."
"My dad would like to see me at SMU," King said. "He says to keep working hard and that one day I'll get to my destination."
In the offseason, King is a standout on both the basketball and baseball squads at Waxahachie.
