Spencer Reeves: Leads by Example

Skyline High School was home to one of the stingiest defenses in the Lone Star State in 2005. Junior linebacker Spencer Reeves was the leader of their star-studded defense that includes four potential Division I prospects. Reeves laid out his top five schools at this point in time.

"Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor, LSU and Oklahoma," Spencer Reeves said. "That is it right now."

Reeves has not received any scholarship offers up to this point, but Texas A&M has been paying him a lot of attention lately. He is also hearing from a ton of other schools in and around the state of Texas.

"Texas A&M has shown the most interest, but Texas has too," Reeves said.

Reeves talked about what makes schools like Texas and Texas A&M attractive.

"They always go to bowl games and win national championships," Reeves said.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pount Reeves got invited to a number of games throughout the college football season but was never able to attend.

"They sent me letters, but I never got a chance to make one," Reeves said.

The Skyline defense was one of the best in the Dallas area this year, and Reeves showed leadership and playmaking ability throughout his junior campaign.

"We finished second in the area on defense. I think I was the leader on defense. Everybody looked up to me," Reeves said. "Basically, I am a playmaker. When we are up or down, I just try to make plays."
