Big Changes at Dayton High

Coming into the 2007 season, Dayton High School had arguably one of the most dynamic offenses in the Lone Star State. Quarterback Cody Green and wide receiver A.J. Dugat were supposed to be the backbone of the offense, but things changed drastically when Green went down with a leg injury. Dugat is now running the show on offense.

"I have changed positions. I am playing quarterback now," A.J. Dugat said. "Cody is hurt. He has torn ligaments in his leg."

Dugat said that Green could possibly miss the rest of the season and he is ready to take on the added responsibility.

"Yes sir," Dugat said when asked if he enjoyed the quarterback position. "I like it because the ball always goes through you."

On the recruiting front, Dugat hasn't received any offers to date, but he is receiving mail from some of the top programs in and around the state of Texas.

"I get a bunch of letters, but I don't have any big offers," Dugat said.

Dugat is currently receiving mail from Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Houston. Most kids would be drawn to the Big 12 schools, but U o H has the edge right now.

"U of H," Dugat said when asked if he had a favorite. "With U of H, it's is my hometown. I could still be close to my family. As a kid, I always wanted to play for them."

Dugat also talked about the other schools that have been in contact.

"With Texas, I've got a cousin that went down there."

"With Oklahoma State, one of my real close friends, Reggie White, played running back there."

"Oklahoma is always a powerhouse school. They run the ball well, and they throw the ball well. They just mix the game up," Dugat said.

Despite the move to quarterback, Dugat is being recruited to play wide receiver on the next level.
