These 18 should hog the 2018 2A headlines. Several are being courted by Bowl Eligible Universities, like Armonie Brown of Refugio, Kody Waltersheid of Muenster (Brother Cole is DE for OK State), Trevor Roberson of Wellington, and New Deal’s DK Blaylock.
There’s little doubt that most will perform somewhere after high school. Several double and triple their athleticism in other sports.
The biggest of the group is, of course, Trevor Roberson of Wellington (perhaps the biggest in Texas HS football); the smallest, Ladavian Johnson of Linden-Kildare, who is only a junior, as are Devon Womack and Christian Huey. Roddrell Freeman is a sophomore.
