LPI: What are you doing this offseason to take your game to the next level? Are you playing 7on7 or in any other competitive offseason league?
TH: This off-season I’ve been working my butt off in the weight room and in the pool. My winter sport I just got out of is going to help me in the spring for track and then spring is going to help me in the fall. Staying in season helps me get better and I even feel faster an looser when I do that. My work ethic is getting better and better everyday. It’s never to late, you have to work at it everyday. It’s go get tougher an tougher everyday, but it will be a lifesaver one day. I’ve also gotten faster with the techniques my coaches have helped me with. It’s a blessing to work with them.
LPI: You currently have offers from Mizzou and Northwestern State. What are your greatest strengths or what can you bring to the table for a college football program?
TH: The things I can bring to a program are good leadership because I help my teammates get better and I want them to help me get better in return. You must have dedication to make yourself better. I’m a good motivator and I will say things to get my teammates minds right and to lock in and worry about what we need to do. Tell us we got to get the train moving quick because time is running out. I’m a diligent worker, I’m a good student athlete and If you need help, I’m there for you. No matter what it is, I will try because you never know the outcome. I want to make a team into a family so we can bond. There will be ups and downs, but we will always have each other’s backs and help each other when we’re down. When you’re on the field, its like protecting you little brother out there: You don’t want anybody to get him.
LPI: Offer or not, which schools have you kept in contact with the most? Or which schools have shown interest in you?
TH: Missouri University, Harvard University, Augustana, MacMurray, Missouri Baptist, Northwest Missouri State, North Central College, Villanova, Northwestern-St.Paul,
LPI: Where have you visited most recently and do you have any planned visits coming up?
TH: I’m Visiting MacMurray this weekend. I’ve Visited Augustana. When the spring starts I will be going to more for spring practices.
LPI: On or off the field, how do you demonstrate leadership?
TH: I show good leadership everyday. I show it in the classroom by being serious when its not a laughing manner and when its time to focus, that’s what a student athlete does. I help people with things when they need it because when your peers look at you with that jersey on you don’t want them to just know that you have talent, but you also want to show them who you are when you are not in that game mindset. I doesn’t matter what jersey you wear or what sport you play for the school; you’re doing something good for your life and you are wanting to become a better person. Life is tough, it challenges your self- esteem and as people get older you must help them in the future. No matter what sport you play you are showing leadership by just walking the halls and worrying about your teammates more than yourself.
LPI: Who are some of your teammates that you believe have a chance to play at the next level, but may be getting overlooked by college coaches?
Sharod Danage – He is a wide receiver and is very athletic. He has the size and hands that you look for in a wide receiver. He could be ranked top 10 in the state, he just needs to get a little bit faster. He has that good leadership quality and works his butt off in practice.
Cam Bland – He is a fantastic student athlete. On the the field, he is very quick and agile. The thing that might be slowing him down is how small he his. However, when he gets to the outside there is no stopping him. He works hard in the offseason and is a great player: heart over height.
