Bright Future for A&M Consolidated Prospects

A&M Consolidated High School in College Station is a respected program in the state of Texas. They produce Division I talent almost every year and this year's junior class is no exception.

Dominic Preston is a tremendously talented athlete with the skills to play wide receiver and quarterback. Preston has a very good offensive guard to protect him in Matthew Fitzpatrick. Head Coach Jim Slaughter talked about these two kids and several other members the Tiger football team.

Preston has played quarterback essentially his entire life. He has the size and skill to become a big time prospect for the class of 2008. A&M Consolidated already has two senior quarterbacks on their roster, but Preston is so athletic that they can't keep him off the field.

"Dominic Preston brings a lot of athletic ability," Slaughter said. "He has been playing quarterback at every level and has too much talent to leave on a lower level. We are bringing him up to play receiver and he will probably play some at quarterback. We have two senior quarterbacks so he should definately play (quarterback) next year. He is extremely athletic."

The 6-foot-3, 193 pound Preston is the nephew of former A&M Consolidated great Tommy Preston. Tommy led the Tigers to a State Championship in the early '90s.

Matthew Fitzpatrick also brings a lot of talent to the football field. He started last season and the coaching staff expects big things out of him in the upcoming year.

"As a sophomore, he started on the offensive line," Slaughter said. "We expect great things from him. Like I said, he had a Dad that is 6'5", so I don't think he is through growing"

The 6-foot-0, 250 pound Fitzpatrick will need to beef up in order to grab the attention of Division I scouts, but he could grow into a lineman who can play on the next level.

Slaughter mentioned several other juniors that could have an impact on the recruiting landscape.

Marshall Cashion plays full back for the Tigers. The 5-foot-7, 175 pound Cashion has great speed and big play potential.

"He is quick as a cat," Slaughter said.

The 5-foot-7, 145 pound Wes Schill plays wide receiver. He will need to put on some weight in order to catch the eyes of college recruiters.

Terrance Walker plays defensive end for the Tigers. The 6-foot-1, 190 pound Walker should play a big part in the success of A&M Consolidated's defense over the next two years.

The Tigers first game is set for this Saturday against Pflugerville High School at Round Rock ISD Athletic Stadium
