Gray looking forward to work in off-season

QB Kolby Gray, after this season, has proven that he is one the state's top signal callers. After throwing for more than 3,000 yards this season, Gray has already started to get heavy interest from Division I college programs. With off-season around the corner, Gray looks improve on his game and pull in some offers. TPI had the chance to talk with Gray to talk about his expectations.

Now that the 2007 football season is over at Cy Falls High School, quarterback Kolby Gray is all work and no play as he prepares for off season and spring football. After leading the Golden Eagles to the Texas area playoff round, the 6-2, 185-pound Gray has caught the attention of several college recruiters.

And they are making quite a few stops through the coach's office for video on Gray.

"I don't have an offer yet, but some pretty big schools have come by," Gray said. "Programs like Texas Tech, Oklahoma, and Boise State have come to the school requesting tape. I am also hearing from Florida, Notre Dame, Missouri, Purdue, and Alabama."

But Gray is being very patient with the recruiting process and has no favorites right now. He said he is "neutral" on all schools showing him interest. His next task will be to start preparing for next year. 

During his junior season, Gray threw for more than 3,300 yards and 34 touchdowns. He added another 380 yards and eight scores on the ground. With Cy Falls graduating many of its primary weapons, Gray is more than ready to step up and be even more a leader than he was this past year. 

"I feel like I am a maturing, learning athlete who is ready to lead the team," Gray said. "It will be different this year because we have some guys leaving and I have to be the one to keep the younger guys focused. I have to be a motivator and a role model."

Gray said he wants to match more film on himself and opponents for the next year in preparation. As far as recruiting, Gray hopes for one thing.

"I hope to start pulling in offers this off season," Gray said.
