"Xavier just has a knack for the football," Raffield said. "He plays a little receiver for us as well and is a return specialist. This is his first year at Cypress Falls so we haven't really been able to get a good look at him yet."
The 6-1, 175 pound Xavier Witchett runs the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds. He has the size to play Division I football and with a solid junior season, he should guarantee himself several scholarship offers.
Turner has incredible speed and plays both running back and wide receiver in the Eagles offense. The 5-foot-10, 170 pound Shane Turner runs the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds.
"He's really fast," Raffield said. "Shane only knows one speed: full tilt. He is very explosive out of the backfield and also plays a little slot receiver for us."
Both of these kids are receiving letters from big time programs. Coach Raffield talked about their early recruitment and named a couple of the schools they have heard from.
Cypress Falls has been on the wrong end of two heart-breaking losses early in the 2006 season. They hope to get things rolling this Friday against Katy Taylor High School. Their junior prospects should play a major role in the future success at Cy Falls High School.
