Texas has made a living over the years recruiting prospects that want nothing more than to become…
Ben Malena: One on One
"I did pretty well at camp. I think I did well in one-on-ones, and I think I did exceptional in individual drills. You know, I learned some things from this camp. I learned that when I make my cuts, to sink my hips. It makes me cut a lot faster, and a lot stronger."
Malena realizes he is now part of a rich Cedar Hill football tradition, one that brought home a State championship two years ago.
"Coach always says that the players are going to graduate but the tradtion is going to stay here. It is our job to keep the tradition going."
The talented running back discusses his recruitment.
"After this camp [Baylor], I am going to Texas, and then going to Georgia."
Although he is only a junior-to-be, Malena already has schools showing him interest. He provides that Oklahoma State, New Mexico, and Texas are showing him the most interest right now.
Malena realizes he is far away from being ready to compete on the college football field right now. He identifies some things that he needs to improve upon.
"My endurance. You know, college football has long games. You have got to prepare your body in the off-season, and you have to get your body ready."
Molena has a couple of years left in his high school football career, but he is definitely one to keep an eye on.
