Stockton, Steele Marches On

For Cibolo Steele running back Justin Stockton, the formula for a state run isn't hard to figure out.

"We work hard at practice, and then we just come out here and play the game of football," Stockton said. "We never underestimate anybody. We come out and play every game like it's a state game. Right now, our record is 0-0, and that's how we approach it."

Stockton is on pace for his second-consecutive season of rushing for more than 1,500 yards, and he's averaging better than 10 yards per carry in doing so.

"My season is going pretty well," Stockton said. "I thank God for that. I'm glad that he blessed me with a great school to play at."

Stockton's exploits have earned him the attention of multiple BCS schools, with UCLA, Baylor and Boise State recruiting him the hardest. But the talented runner is starting to hear more and more from in-state powers Texas and Texas A&M.

"It really doesn't matter," Stockton said about whether he'd leave the state. "I'm just waiting. I'm really looking at everybody at this point."

Stockton's top three factors when looking at a school include academics, the strength of the football program and his role within the offense, he said.

"I'd still like to play running back, but other than that, I'm open," Stockton said.
