Vincent McNeil: 2008 ATH Drawing Interest

Roosevelt High is home to a very versatile athlete. Vincent McNeil plays both quarterback and defensive back for the Mustangs. Head Coach Joseph Daniels talked about McNeil's play on the field and another one of his teammates.

"Vincent is a heck of an athlete. He is a very manageable young man," Daniels said. "He can definitely play at a D-I somewhere."

Vincent McNeil transferred to Roosevelt from Wilmer-Hutchins last year. He is also a star on the basketball team and helped lead Roosevelt to the state playoffs last season. He plays on both sides of the ball on the football field, but will likely play defensive back on the next level. Several schools already have their eyes on 6-foot-2, 190-pound McNeil.

"He has several of them," Daniels said. "He gets a lot of mail from Oklahoma State and Texas Tech. I have a stack of them that I haven't even given to him yet. He has got one from Wisconsin, TCU, LSU, Kansas State and Kansas."

"We also have a big ole boy named Demond Lane. He is a little raw, but he has the size and temperament to be a Division I player. He is only a junior, so he has one year left," Daniels said.

Lane is a massive offensive lineman. The 6-foot-5, 340 pound offensive tackle needs to mature a little over the next two seasons but should draw interest as well.

Roosevelt is 3-2 after five games this season. The Mustangs will take on Lake Worth High School on Friday the 13th.
