Longtime A&M Junior commit Joseph Cheek will begin Spring practice on Wednesday and hopes to turn a new focus towards football and his future career as an Aggie. After committing to Texas A&M last summer, Cheek was awarded second team All-Central Texas honors and was a bright spot on a struggling Seguin team.

Despite his commitment, the Aggie legacy has garnered scholarship offers from both Stanford and Wake Forest, among interest from others. "Just recently my head coach told me that Tennessee had called him to ask if I was interested, but I am solid to A&M."

Cheek claims to have made great strides in the off-season as a football player, athlete, and competitor as a whole, "I played basketball which helped further advance my athleticism and footwork. We hope to make the playoffs next year in both sports. I have been working to put weight on my frame and am now 6-foot-7, 273 pounds." Cheek's developments are vital at this stage as he plans to hit his selected college campus six to seven months before his peers. "I plan to graduate early so I can have a full spring under my belt with the team and the offense before the Fall."

Cheek enters his senior year with a chip on his shoulder, hoping to help revitalize a once-thriving Seguin football program to its previous glory. "I hope to be a leader on the field this fall and do all I can for my team to win as many games as possible before getting to College Station in January."
