Coaches Corner – 12/17/12

My two minute warning

I was recently watching a Texas high school state playoff game on Saturday. National power house, Katy High School defeated Steele High School. At least 8 division one players had already committed to play college football, with a few more players likely to sign at a later date, played in the game.
