You don't have to tell Dickinson (TX) strong safety/linebacker Christopher Myers about adversity because he has faced quite a bit of it during his high school career. After making the come back from a season-ending injury as a junior, Myers came into this year focused on making a name for himself as an athlete.
And to date, he has done that. He already has Division I interest and the offers. Now, he must set up the visits and go from there.
"I have offers from Sam Houston, UTEP, and Texas State," Myers said. "I plan to visit all of them. I want to end up at a school that has the most to offer to me."
The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Myers has no favorites at the moment, but said he keeps constant contact with coaches from all of the programs. Of the schools listed, the only one he has been seen is Sam Houston, which he experienced at a summer camp session.
"They (Sam Houston) has really nice facilities and I like the coaches a lot," Myers said. "I talk with coaches from all the schools quite a bit. A lot of the times they ask me how am I doing."
And with that statement, Myers is referring to the knee injury he sustained in the last game of the season. But before the injury, Myers was averaging about 11 tackles and two sacks per game. He also had two interceptions.
Myers describes himself as a leader with a strong heart and a desire to win. He spoke about what he wants in a program and was quite clear.
"The No. 1 thing is education because I want to study law enforcement," Myers said. "And I want to get good playing time. I don't want to go somewhere and ride the bench. And of course, I want to be happy."
