Impressive is the best word that can be used to describe the junior season that Heritage Hall (OK) athlete Sterling Shepard had. He made things happen on offense, defense and special teams.
And that is why the Midlands 100 junior already has some of the top programs in the country trying to get in on his talents.
"Right now I just have an offer from Oklahoma State. But I have a few other schools looking at me too," Shepard said.
Aside from the in-state Cowboys program, the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Shepard said that UCLA, Alabama, Oklahoma, Tulsa and Kansas have been recruiting him. And why not? Shepard is a player who a number of skills to the table.
Last season for Heritage Hall, he had over 1,300 yards receiving on offense, 10 interceptions on defense (six went for touchdowns) and a touchdown on punt return. In all, Shepard had 34 total touchdowns.
He also had the chance to show off his talents on the big stage at the US Army All-American combine.
"It went great. To get the chance to go against the top guys in the country lets me know where my game is," Shepard said. "I felt comfortable out there with all of those guys. I just came out to do what I do."
There are a few other things that Shepard plans to do: make some off-season college visits. He has a number of junior day invites and while he plans to attend a number of them, two are on the must list.
"Probably Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. That's two I will do for sure," Shepard said.
