Rex Burkhead is expected to be a key to Nebraska’s season as a breakout star to watch and Matt Nicholson gets a chance to display his skills off the gridiron in an appearance with a Houston radio station.
Richard Lagow, entering his sophomore season at quarterback for Plano, is headed to the National Underclassman (NUC) Top 100 Combine at The University of Oklahoma taking place today and Saturday. See more on this event here.
Grant Pierce will make his final appearance in a high school game Tuesday as he becomes the 19th member of the Plano Wildcats to appear in the Texas High School Coaches Association’s Football All-Star Game.
The 75th edition of the classic north-south gridiron match up takes place at 7:30 p.m. at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
Sometimes an all-star game can be all offense and other times defense rules the day. If it does, Pierce might get the chance to show the state why he was such a valuable tool in 2009 for Plano.
Pierce was one of four District 8-5A players and the only selection from Plano to the Class 5A All-State Football Team, as selected by The Associated Press. He was pegged as the state’s second-best punter in Class 5A and became Plano’s second all-state punter in five seasons. He also made the all-district team as both a punter and kicker and was selected to the all-county team.
Pierce averaged 38.6 yards per punt on 49 attempts, landing 17 punts inside the opponent’s 20 and six more inside the opponent’s 10. He had a 37.7-yard net average on kickoffs, a number near perfect considering a touchback is a net of 40 yards. He sent 21 kickoffs through the end zone for touchbacks and nine other kickoffs netted an opponent’s start inside their own 20. Pierce was also 31-for-33 on conversion kicks and 5-for-12 on field goals.
After the season, Pierce signed with the Missouri University of Science and Technology (MST), formerly Missouri-Rolla. He was accepted academically to Baylor, Oklahoma, Texas Tech and TCU.
Carson Meger represented Plano in the all-star game a year ago. He completed 6 of 15 passes for 93 yards. He later walked on at UT-El Paso and this spring played his way into the primary backup role at quarterback as a redshirt freshman.
The 75th annual Texas High School Coaches Association Football All-Star Game will be broadcast live on FOX Sports Southwest. Tickets to the game are $10 and may be purchased at the gate on game day. The north squad will be coached by Brownwood’s Bob Shipley and the South by Tatum’s Andy Evan. See the game day roster here.
