"We played great. We lost a game early, then won four or five straight before we lost in the Championship game to Miami Northwestern," Terrell told Burnt Orange Beat.
According to many observers who were there, Terrell was the go-to guy for junior-to-be quarterback Ryan Polite. Scout.com's Chris Fetters came away very impressed with Terrell.
"I loved Terrell. Absolutely the go-to guy for Polite, who is so polished for only going into his junior year. Whenever Polite needed something big, he went to Terrell."
For their efforts, both Polite and Terrell earned All-Tournament Team honors.
Terrell, who is rated as the #96 WR in the country by Scout, certainly made a statement with his play, and perhaps even his ranking.
"Man, all that stuff with the rankings started when I ran a slow time at a combine last year. I recently ran a 4.6 at a combine down in Austin. I consistently run 4.5 to 4.6," Terrell said.
Scout.com's Miller Safrit certainly came away impressed with the big bodied wide out.
"He complained about where he is ranked, but he certainly was heard throughout the tournament on the field catching every jump ball he fought for, making some solid catches in traffic, and running better routes than I expected."
As far as the second place finish, Terrell and the Eagles were proud of their showing.
"I think we represented Desoto and the state of Texas pretty well. We are happy with our showing," Terrell said.
The showing could lead into big things for the Eagles in the upcoming season as they are talented and experienced bunch.
"We return 17 or 18 starters from last year and we have been working real hard this offseason and summer, so we are expecting it to carry over this season," Terrell said. Terrell already has a state championship on the hardwood as a junior.
Expect the Eagles to improve on their 6-6 record and contend for a crown in 2009.
