Flowers Receiving Interest

2014 San Antonio Churchill standout talks about his junior season, who's showing interest and what he's looking for in a school.

San Antonio Churchill 2014 tight end prospect Dimitri Flowers had a nice junior year, grabbing 32 passes for 397 yards and five touchdowns.

That season becomes even more impressive when you consider that he broke his arm in the eighth game of the season.

"I think I was having a pretty good year until I broke my arm," Flowers said. "But I still have a couple of things that I need to work on."

When asked what specifically what he needed to work on, the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder said "I would have to say my energy throughout the whole game."

"That's probably it right there," Flowers continued. "I was watching some film by myself, and I just noticed that I was lazy at times. That needs to stop."

But did Flowers really have a chance to be lazy? His highlight tape shows him filling a number of roles on the football team, from blocking as an H-back to catching the ball and even returning a few punts. He even played a game AFTER breaking his arm, catching six passes for 48 yards and a touchdown.

"Probably my versatility," Flowers said when asked what part of his game he most takes pride in. "Just how many positions I can play."

And while Flowers lines up at either tight end or H-back, one of the things that stands out is his ability to make things happen after the catch. Despite catching a number of short throws, and even a few screens, Flowers averaged 12.4 yards per catch.

"There's nothing special about just catching the ball," Flowers said. "You want to gain yards after the catch. Everybody wants to see you make plays and score."

Flowers doesn't have any offers just yet, but that should change soon. He's received interest from Baylor, Nebraska, Oklahoma, TCU and Tulsa, with Texas defensive backs coach Duane Akina also swinging by Churchill to take a look at the talented tight end/H-back. Akina's recruiting area is San Antonio.

Flowers said he doesn't have any favorites at this point, though he does have a pretty good idea what he's looking for.

"In the future, I want to be a physical therapist," Flowers said. "I want to go somewhere with good coaches, a good program and a good physical therapy program. Football isn't going to be around forever."
