Reedley's Horn is tearing it up

Reedley RB Avery Horn (5-10, 195) is having a huge season so far for the Tigers, but he's only focused on football and his work in the classroom, not on where he'll end up playing ball in 2010. JCFootball.com caught up with the former Michigan Wolverine and he updated us on things, especially why he isn't concerned about the recruiting process at this time...

"I've done alright," Horn told JCFootball.com. "I'm my own worst critic, so I think I could always do better, but I've had a good season so far."

Horn has rushed for 588 yards and six touchdowns while helping lead Reedley to a 3-2 record with two close losses to start the season.

"Those were both tough losses for us," Horn said. "We felt we should have won, but those teams are two of the best teams in the state, so it isn't like we lost to a couple of bad schools or anything."

Horn's speed and elusiveness have been on display on a weekly basis and the former Michigan tailback said his coaches have told him some schools have been inquiring about his services, but he's not worried about that at this point.

"Ive been through the whole recruiting thing before, so I'm not really stressing about that right now," Horn said. "I'm really focusing on getting my classes done and doing the work in that area so I can leave as soon as possible and then I have my own team to worry about.

"The recruiting will take care of itself after my season is over, so I'm just not even thinking about it."

Horn is a 4-2-4 player, so he must receive his AA degree before he can sign with another school. He expects to have that wrapped up by May of next year and wants to sign his letter-of-intent in February and he'll have two years to play two wherever he ends up.
