Bayers names five
Mullen linebacker Castille Bayers has done an excellent job leading his team defensively this fall. The skills he has shown have helped him remain in contact with five Division I schools across the country.
"Recently it has been Minnesota, Illinois, Wyoming, New Mexico, and CU. Those are the biggest schools."
Bayers expects to hear more about scholarships in coming months.
"There are no offers right now but a lot of schools said they are waiting until after the season because they are wrapped up with their season."
Two programs are after Bayers the most at this point.
"It is probably Wyoming and New Mexico. It is those two schools."
Bayers has made one trip earlier in the fall.
"I took a visit up to Laramie when they played Air Force. That has been the only one though."
Officials are something that Bayers hopes he can get to in the future.
"I am scheduling an official with New Mexico and Wyoming but I'm not sure when. I think it will be some time in December."
Bayers is also busy with his own high school football season.
"I think it has gone pretty well but we didn't finish the regular season like we wanted to but we got over it and have some momentum in the playoffs after last week. We think we can keep it going and continue to pick up momentum."
Cherokee Trail is on the schedule next.
"They are a good team and they only have one loss. We want to come out and hit them. We know they are fast and have a lot of flash. If we can be more physical, we can win the game."
Bayers feels that there is one player that they must slow down on the opposition.
"Their quarterback is one to watch and their offensive and defensive lines are really big. Their defense is good but mainly the individual player I saw was their quarterback. The whole key would be to shut him down this week."
