Dillon Sterling-Cole has his team off to a three and one start on the season. This week they have a big district game vs. Spring High School.
"I am adjusting to 6A football and adapting to the changes well," Sterling-Cole said. "Running the offense at Westfield is certainly preparing me for the next level of football. In four weeks of play, I am coming along but know that I still have a lot of learning to do. I am working on my timing, making better reads, and executing the plays."
Sterling-Cole is still adjusting to the Houston life style, but plenty of college coaches know where to find him.
"I have been getting a lot of mail from Nebraska, Purdue, Ohio State, Mississippi State, Florida State, Stanford and TCU," Sterling-Cole said. "There are other schools like Texas, LA Tech, Duke, Michigan State but those are the ones that are showing interest. By getting settled into my surroundings in Houston, I haven't had the opportunity to visit anywhere just yet. I have been talking with my parents and will be looking into visiting a few schools soon."
There have been plenty of close calls and upsets the first four weeks of the college football season but nothing surprises the standout signal caller.
"Nothing surprises me very much these days," Sterling-Cole Said. "More has shocked me in the NFL world than in college. If I had to say something about the college world, I would say it has surprised me with the number of players who have been suspended or let go from teams."
Head coach Charlie Strong has received national attention with the dismissal of several Texas football players. Where does Dillon Sterling-Cole stand on the issue?
"Coach Strong is doing a great job adding his touch to the Texas program," Sterling-Cole said. "I can't do anything but respect him and his coaching staff for their pro-active approach towards discipline and the core values of football. Winning is great but if it's at the expense of demoralizing the sport than what good is it. Just look at the NFL and what has taken place over the past month. You must run a disciplined program no matter if it is little league, high school, college, or the NFL if you want to have and maintain a winning tradition."
