Bright Future for Al Owens

Springtown junior Al Owens has a bright future in front of him. His size, speed and aggressiveness make him one of the most sought after safety prospects in the state of Texas. Owens talked about how his recruiting has been going as of late.

"I have gotten a few letters from Oklahoma State, Kansas State, Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Houston and Missouri," Al Owens said.

"Right now, I am not really sure," Owens stated when asked about his schools of interest.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Owens runs the 40-yard dash in a speedy 4.47 seconds. He earned second team all-district honors as a sophomore and continued that success as a junior. His size and speed make him an extremely attractive prospect in the class of 2008.

Owens has been very committed to improving his game through hard work and summer camps over the past two years.

"I went to the Kansas State camp. I went to TCU, but it was one of those one day camps," Owens said. "It wasn't this year, but I went to Stanford also."

Owens was on campus at SMU earlier this year to watch a game with one of his teammates who committed to SMU back in the summer.

"I went with Logan Turner to a SMU game. They were playing Arkansas State," Owens said.

Owens comes from a good family and is a smart kid. His dad played college football at Colgate University. Owens has the perfect mind set for any hard hitting safety.

"I think I can run pretty well. I have good feet and like to come up and hit people," Owens laughed.
