Posted Dec 9, 2013 has a quick update on Lamar quarterback Darrell Colbert Jr. from Houston, Texas. He was recently named one of the top players in the area for his performance this past season at the quarterback position.

For three years he has been leading his team and making headlines. Now that his prep career is complete, Houston (Tex.) Lamar quarterback Darrell Colbert can go ahead and look forward to the next step which will be to try and have great performances at SMU.

But before he leaves, he will have the chance to be honored by the Touchdown Club of Houston as a nominee for the Offensive Player of the Year. 

“It’s an honor to be mentioned as one of the top players in Houston,” Colbert said. 

This past year, the 6-foot-1, 185-pound Colbert picked up where he left off from last season throwing for 1,683 yards with 22 touchdowns to only seven interceptions (three of which came in his final game). He also ran for another 400 yards and six touchdowns. 

He helped his team finish to an 11-1 finish. That lone loss came at a not-so-great time as Lamar fell to Pearland in the third round of the playoffs. Now, for Colbert it is time to look towards his future, which is in Dallas, Tex.

“I have a good relationship with SMU and I am looking forward to getting up there and learning from the coaches,” Colbert said.

Ahmard Vital is responsible for Midlands Recruiting, mainly covering prospects in the state of Texas. He joined in 2005 and is the author of the newly released book, Awaken the Baller Within.
