"It was a good feeling getting back out there. The receivers and I connected really well and the offense got flowing," said Heard.
Longhorn fans can breathe easy knowing that The Elite 11 finalist is solid on his commitment to Texas since he committed last August.
"I'm feeling really strong with UT right now and I'm excited about everything they have going," said Heard.
Demontrie Taylor (2014 OLB) also made plays early on including an interception showing why he was named to the Texas High School Football Pre-season Elite team in 4A region 1. Look out for him to make some noise for the Guyer defense.

"I made some mistakes early on but I made some big plays to get our team going and I feel great about how we did overall," said Newsome.
Aledo and Guyer won't face each other during the regular season but both Heard and Newsome both have state championship aspirations this year and understand that they may cross paths again in the playoffs. Newsome is likely to call the snaps if Aledo faces Guyer in the playoffs to match the athleticism of Heard. Both athletes talked about facing each other in the scrimmage and possibly going head to head down the road.
"It was fun going against him he's a good player and he's a good guy. It's hard trying to scheme against him and scheme around him but it was fun," said Heard.
"The goal is of course to make it to state, but we know if we go Division I we will have to beat Guyer to get there. It's a blessing to play against someone of (Heard's) caliber and hopefully I will see him soon," said Newsome.
