2008 LB next in line at Skyline High

Dallas Skyline produces Division I talent year after year. In 2006, Michael Morgan was highly recruited before signing with USC. This year, current senior Christian Scott is gathering all the attention. So who is Skyline's next big time prospect?

Spencer Reeves brings speed and athleticism to the football field. He started every game at outside linebacker as a sophomore on a very talented team. Assistant Coach Derrick Roberson talked about what Reeves adds to the football program at Skyline High School.

"His speed, he runs to the ball well. He is very aggressive," Roberson said. "He started every game for us as a sophomore. We hope that he will bring leadership because we lost a lot of seniors last year. He knows the game and reads his keys very well. The biggest thing he brings is tenacity and intensity."

The 6-foot-2, 195 pound Reeves runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds. He will need to put on some weight in order to become a dominate linebacker on the next level, but his blazing speed has several college programs excited about his potential.

"He is just a junior so he hasn't gotten any scholarship offers, but he is getting a ton of mail. In the spring after signing day, we expect a lot of people to offer," Roberson said.

"I know Texas is real interested," Roberson said. "They made sure they had his name and information so they could send him mail."

The Dallas Morning News recently listed Reeves as one of the top junior players in the Dallas area. Reeves should play a major role in the success of the Skyline defense this season. He and Christian Scott create a dynamic duo on the defensive side of the ball.
