Christopher looking towards special season

Often times a team's best athlete is its quarterback and that may be the case with Tates Creek's Deijamare Christopher, better known as Dee. The 6-foot, 165-pound signal caller is a key cog in his team's offense due to his ability to make things happen.

Often times a team's best athlete is its quarterback and that may be the case with Tates Creek's Deijamare Christopher, better known as Dee. The 6-foot, 165-pound signal caller is a key cog in his team's offense due to his ability to make things happen.

"I'm able to move out of the pocket when it collapses and make plays on the run," said Christopher. Christopher ran for over 250 yards as a junior and also threw for over 1300 yards. As a quarterback, he knows where he wants to step up his game.

"I want to get better at my leadership. I want to get better at going through my reads quicker and I want to work on my footwork," he said.

But Christopher has already seen himself get consistently better as a player. "This was my first year playing football. I thought I played pretty good. I go better each and every week and I was able to help my team a lot," he continued.

Christopher has received interest from a hand full of schools so far and has made one visit at this point.

"I'm hearing from Middle Tennessee State, Ashland, Kentucky, Bowling Green, Western Kentucky and that's about it," said Christopher. "I went to Kentucky's Junior Day."

Christopher's off-season goals are simple, yet important. "I want to be a leader and get my team together," he said. "This is a big year for us. We got a lot of talent on our team and we can do big things. I want to put in hard work and show dedication. I think that can make my team better. It'll give us a little extra something in the fourth quarter when we need it most," finished Christopher.
