Shelton had a nice game on Friday against Oak Grove. It may have been the team's best offensive showing of the season.
"Coach Weems says that if the wide receivers don't do a good job, then everybody is just going to start bringing all of their linebackers to stop the run," said Cole. "He said we have to be able to throw the ball, so the field can open up for us. We were able to do that tonight."
Cole had a very nifty grab on an out route where he had to climb the ladder and then get his feet down in bounds. It is not a play most high school players can make, but Shelton made it look easy.
"We might do that a hundred times in practice," said the talented wide out. "It's sort of a bread and butter play."
As a junior, Shelton believes he is making the improvement he needs to in order to help the team and elevate his stock as a college prospect.
"I feel like I am playing good," said Cole. "I feel like I am blocking better this year and I am running all of my routes full speed."
Several schools have begun collecting info, but so far only one school has had the chance to host the rising prospect as an unofficial visitor.
Cole reports he had a very productive conversation with the Bulldogs' head man.
"He told me to keep my grades up and that they will be here in January," said Shelton. "He said if I keep my grades up then everything will be good."
"I love them," said Cole of the Bulldogs. "I like seeing Chris and Tyler play.
"Chris told me when you get up there that you don't worry about the fans and all of that.
"He said it's just like at practice. You just run your routes and try to score every time you catch it."
