Spring is just around the corner at that means Spring Football to all the high school football junkies out there. During the 2009 season, I viewed more than 200 high school football games (most on video as I haven't figured out how to be in more than one place at a time yet) for teams around the Central Texas area. For me, the Centex area extends from Temple down to New Braunsfels.
The 2010 Class graduated some great talent to fill the ranks of the Big 12 like Dominic Espinosa to Texas, Tyrus Thompson to Oklahoma and Nehemiah Hicks to Texas A&M. However, there is plenty of talent still in the Centex pipeline. So here is my attempt to spotlight the Top 25 players returning next season. There was an attempt to keep the list balanced between positions and schools.
*Michael Brewer – QB Lake Travis SR
Super poised, great footwork and can make all the throws.
*Kenny Williams – RB Pflugerville Hendrickson SR
A 17-year-old Bo Jackson. Very rare blend of power and speed.
*Jordan Wade – DT Stony Point SR
Man among boys. Pure explosion off the ball. Not sure anyone can block him next season.
*Josiah Monroe – QB Bastrop SR
Worth the price of admission to watch this kid scramble and make plays with his arm and legs.
*Conner Sheehan – LB Anderson SR
Very under rated LB. Great instincts – always knows where the ball is. Delivers the hit when he gets to the ball carrier. Puts up huge tackle totals.
*Chet Moss – LB Cedar Park SR
*David Ash – QB Belton SR
*Joseph Cheek – OL Seguin SR
*Storm Woods – RB Pflugerville SR
*Spencer Drango – OL Cedar Park SR
*Taylor Doyle – OL Lake Travis SR
*Jonathon Henderson – ATH Leander SR
*Brandon Wilkerson – WR LaGrange
*Michael Sorrels – RB McCallum SR
*Conner Floyd – WR Lake Travis SR
*Royce Asi – LB Killeen SR
*Rodney Lee – DB Del Valle SR
*Logan David – DT Rockdale SR
*P.L. Lindley – LB Stony Point SR
*Sam Wehmeyer – QB Anderson SR
*Alex Matlock – S Pflugerville SR
*Collin Middleton – DE/LB Cedar Park SR
*Sam Kelley – RB Stony Point SR
*Josh Ware – DB Thorndale SR
*Caleb Jones – WR Austin JR
