Space City Classic: Red WR/TE/ATH Quick Hits

Cy Woods WR Isaiah Battle

Next Saturday, the annual Space City Classic All-Star game will take place in Houston. So as the team roster are getting finalized, will take a quick look at some of the players who will line up for the Red Team. Today, we look at the wide receivers and athletes.

Red Offense – Wide Receivers (5)
WR – George Moore, Aldine
WR – Jordan Leslie, Tomball
WR – Jordan Sampson, Westfield
WR – Isaiah Battle, Cy Woods
WR – Norman Darden, Eisenhower

Plenty of playmakers in the fold for the Red team and rest assured that coach Lionel Crawford will make use of his guys' talents. One player who has put up insane numbers for many years in all-state receiver Leslie, who had 61 catches for 798 yards and nine touchdowns. On the Northwest side of town, Battle was the No. 1 receiver for the Cy Woods team. Battle ended with 66 receptions for 1,109 yards and eight touchdowns.

Never hurts for a coach in an all-star game to have one of his own and Moore was key in the Mustangs' success. More hauled in 30 passes for 559 yards and six touchdowns. Staying in Aldine ISD, Eisenhower's Darden may be small in the physical, but plays big with 38 catches for 618 yards and four touchdowns in 2009. Sampson rounds out the bunch, as he was good for 11 catches for 243 yards and three touchdowns. 

Red Offense-Tight Ends (2)
TE – Joe Norrell, Cinco Ranch
TE – Joe Okafor, Bellaire

Lots of versatility at the tight end position, as Norrell and Okafor will line up for the Red squad. Norrell proved this past season to be solid in the pass and run game. As for the ground game, he and the rest of the guys in the trenches was key in a 2,000-plus running back. On the passing side, Norrell had 37 receptions for 449 yards and five touchdowns. As for Okafor, though he is capable of playing tight end as he did sometime during his high school career, he played on the defensive live mostly in 2009.

Red Offense-Athletes (2)
ATH – Dennis Dunbar, Magnolia
ATH – Morris Tuck, Hitchcock

Got to your hybrid guy in an all-star game and Dunbar and Tuck can bring that. Dunbar had 731 yards in the ground and 151 yards receiving for nine total touchdowns. Tuck, as a quarterback, complete 65 percent of his passes throwing for 2,519 yards, 23 touchdowns to eight interceptions. He ran for one touchdown also. Recommended Stories
