It's been a rough season for Quincy Aldridge and his Whitehouse Wildcats. Quincy sprained his MCL in a pre-season scrimmage that kept him out of the first five games of the season. The Wildcats suffered without Aldridge, going 0-5 to start the season. He made a grand debut his first game back with 2 interceptions and a touchdown pass on a trick play. They finished out the season against a tough Longview team. Things started off good but quickly got out of hand.

"We got up on them early. Trey [Metoyer] scored and it just all went downhill from there. They had a few big plays and we got down and we couldn't recover. Kind of like how the Aggies played against OU. The turnovers killed us and them."

So what's next for the 6'2'', 185 pound junior? Basketball will soon take over as his top priority. Quincy plays guard and forward at the varsity level and last year he averaged 14 points per game.

"Im getting ready for basketball right now, but I want to catch a few last minute football games before the season is over. The one I really want to catch is the Texas/Texas A&M game. Trey is coming with me to that game. "

Aldridge doesn't have any offers on the table as of yet but he has been getting a lot of letters from schools across the country.

"I have been getting letters from Oregon, Miami, U of H, North Western, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Stanford, Texas A&M, and Texas. Texas has kind of slowed down but Miami has been keeping up with me a lot. I got a handwritten letter from Coach Jordan. "

Quincy wants to play safety at the collegiate level because he feels it's a position he feels more comfortable playing.

"It's easier for me to play safety than receiver. I've been playing safety since my freshman year and I found it as a better fit for me. My range, my height, and ability to read the quarterback is was set me apart from other players at my age."
