In 2018, the 806 fielded some great talent! Players like DK Blaylock, King Doerue, Blair Conwright, Payton, Reese, Beau and more! So, what about next season? Folks, we have some big time players on the way for 2019 and beyond! Here is our top 30 players that will hit the Gridiron next fall. Yes, it's in order..
#1 Kobie Mckinzie: Lubbock-Cooper/LB/S/DE
Kobie is going to be a force the next three years, and in college!
Kobie, who has already been offered by Illinois State and Incarnate Word, will be the biggest recruit to come out of Lubbock in quite some time. Every time the Pirates needed a play, he delivered. With the tutelage of one of the best high school coaching staffs in the nation, expect him to be one of the nation's best defensive players in 2022.
#2 Sawyer Robertson: Coronado High/QB
Sawyer electrified in his Sophomore season and don't expect a layoff anytime soon. SMU knows what's coming with the 2021 QB as they have offered him already and expect about 20 more to come his way as well. Very humble young man that learns on the fly. With Coach Seth Parr guiding him, it's scary to think what he will look like in his Senior season!
#3 Isaiah Johnson: Lubbock-Cooper/TB
Isaiah has over 1,200 yards and over 20 touchdowns in his first year with the Pirates. Johnson will be a Senior next year and has already garnered two offers; one from Incarnate Word, and one from Eastern new Mexico. Expect the big offers to come this summer. He'e got that "it" factor!
#4 Jasean Barrow: Randall Raiders/TB(LB)
Jasean had another great year for Randall and he has been receiving major interest from DI programs all year. He will have plenty of choices when he plays in his last year of football in 2019 and he will be a beast on Saturdays as well!
#5 Coreon Bailey: Monterey Plainsmen/QB
Coreon is a human highlight film. A very strong arm, paired up with breakaway speed makes him a dual threat quarterback, and one of the top dual threat quarterbacks in his class. Whoever passes on Coreon will pay dearly.
#6 Charlie Robinson: Coronado High/LB
Charlie is a man amongst boys out here at Linebacker! He is everywhere on the field, and there in a hurry! A born leader already and he holds everyone accountable, including himself, he is sure to blow up by next year. He don't mess around!
#7 Sederick Colbert: Estacado High/LB/SS
Sederick is slept on.. but he is an absolute stud on defense. 6'3" 215 pounds and built like a tank! Very fast through the holes and makes dangerous impact every tackle. He has had some looks. but expect offers by this time next season. He works very hard and won't be denied!
#8 Tarik Williams: Caprock HS/ATH
Tarik had a great season, and then it got even better as he received his first Division One offer from Howard University! He will do what's asked of him, and he will do it well! Very sharp young man and great things are coming for him the rest of his career!
#9 Jake Gilbert: Frenship High/LB
Jake is a monster at linebacker for the Tigers! Gilbert garnered many awards during his Sophomore year and trust me, he isn't done yet! Expect a couple of big seasons coming for Jake, and someone will get a beast!
#10 John Holcomb: Wellington High/DE/TE
