HAVELOCK, N.C. -- Taylor Woods had a big junior season. After helping Havelock win their second straight state championship, Woods is hoping to attract more interest on the recruiting trail.

Havelock is one of the premier high school football programs in North Carolina. The Rams won their second straight state championship in 2012 and Taylor Woods played a huge role in the team’s success.

“It all starts in the weight room and doing everything perfect in practice,” said Woods. “I just got bigger, stronger, and faster. I was a little slow as a sophomore.”

Woods has heard from an in-state school, but would like to hear from another school also.

“I've been getting some letters from Duke,” he said. “I want to hear from Clemson, I just like their offense.”

Woods said he planned to attend the Nike Combine in March, but is unsure about what camps he will attend this summer.

For now, Woods is focused on becoming a better player and winning a third state championship.

“I’m just going to keep working on my speed and try to get bigger,” he said. “Our main goal next year is winning a state championship. It would be special to three-peat. It would be history.”

Woods finished his junior season with 778 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns. He also had 38 tackles and three tackles for loss on defense.
