"Mike is like a coach on the football field. He makes all the adjustment calls on the defensive side of the ball," Holmes said. "He made first team all-district unanimously as a sophomore. He already has five picks right now. I don't know his exact stats from last year, but I think he had four interceptions and a couple of knockdowns. He is very intelligent in the classroom and on the football field."
Littleton is already hearing from a number of schools mainly located in the Big 12. Coach Holmes rattled off a couple of the schools that are showing interest in his star free safety.
Coach Holmes also has another talented junior prospect on his roster. The 5-foot-9, 170 pound Kevin Matthews is a speedster with 4.5 speed. He is an excellent return specialist and also plays running back and wide receiver on the offensive side of the ball.
"He made all-district last year as a kick return/punt return specialist." Holmes said.
The Ball Tornadoes have started the season with a 2-1 record. They play their first district contest against Alvin High School this Friday.
