Hebron LB Looking For Offers

Hebron LB Looking For Offers

There is never any shortage of talent from the DFW Metroplex. With so many D1 kids produced every year it's common for some to get overlooked and not receive an offer until they hit the field in the fall. That could be the case for this linebacker.

Gavin Burford, a 6'0" 213lb linebacker, who could play outside or inside, is patiently waiting for his first offer. Programs such as UTSA, UTEP, UNT, La. Tech, Iowa, Michigan State and more, have stopped by or made contact with him from earlier this spring.

Along with hitting the camp scene for maximum exposure, he's working out doing drills and getting strong to show college coaches that he's fully capable of playing on the next level.

Just two weeks ago he attended the UTSA Satellite Camp at Prosper HS and really liked what he saw from the staff.

"I talked to Coach Roark. He loved my film and everything. I looked good in drills he said. He wants to see my first two games later this year and that after that, there could be an offer," said Burford.

Burford has been on the UTSA campus before. He and his family took a vacation not to long ago in the Alamo City and they made a stop in Roadrunner country.

"It's really nice in San Antonio. I went there for a vacation. I saw the Alamodome and it was nice."

Gavin is known for playing with high intensity. His motor is non-stop. He's a 3-down linebacker who can stay on the field even in passing downs. He finished with 130 tackles, 4 sacks, and 1 INT that he returned for a touchdown, last year for the Hawks. His play earned him All District 5-5A.

Right now, Burford would like to have his recruitment over midway through the season, maybe get one or two visits in depending on his offers. If the 'Runners continue to recruit him and an offer is extended, look for Burford to do some serious thinking and consideration on whether he would take the offer and become a 'Runner.
