Arlington Bowie is loaded with talent this season and one player to watch is safety Robert Zenon. The 2012 product finished with 55 tackles, one interception, and one forced fumble in 2009 as a sophomore.

"Things are going great at Bowie. We are looking great in all areas. Our defense is solid and Russell Hansbrough our running back is great," said Zenon. My main goal this season is to win the state championship. I just want to make my team better, no matter what I need to do as a player. I will do anything my coaches ask of me."

At 5-foot-10, 160 pounds, Zenon's frame is still small for a D-1 safety, but teams like OSU, Houston, Texas, and Baylor are watching him.

"I put some weight on and lifted a lot this summer. I worked out everyday and my footwork is way better than where it was," said the safety. "Hopefully I will add some more."

At this point, Zenon favors one school, but admits that he is early in the recruiting process.

"I like Oklahoma State a lot. I like the coaching staff quite a bit and I like the environment up there," said the junior. "I would like to attend a school with a good coaching staff and a school that can help me hit the books hard. Academics are important."

Bowie expects to contend with Arlington Martin for the top spot in district 4-5A. The Volunteers return three players on offense and seven players on defense.
