Devin Pike gets offer

Recently, a fellow Panther on the football team has received a scholarship to play football at the University of Illinois. Devin Pike has not committed yet, but he is only a junior and has plenty of time to find the college that best suits him. He is a major part of Elder’s offense. Not only can he catch, he can also run block. This is a major part of our offense mainly because we run a lot. Devin definitely has the build for a tight end; a whopping 6’-5” and 225lbs makes him a top prospect for college football. I talked to him briefly about receiving the scholarship. I asked him what he thought about getting an offer already as a junior. “It is very exciting and a great feeling. I have always wanted to play football in college,” he said. I also asked what he is going to do to get better, and give him a better chance of being successful in college. “I am going to work on getting faster and a lot stronger to match up with the defensive ends in college,” he said. Devin could possibly become a valuable offensive weapon in college, and will help out whatever team he decides to play for.
