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.
