DALLAS, Texas – Last Friday night two of the top teams in the Dallas area took the field in Lancaster High School and Dallas Carter. In the 21-6 win by Dallas Carter, a battle of contrasts took place. Lancaster is a team loaded with talent at the skill positions with no less than seven Division-I prospects lining up at skill spots for the Tigers. However, on Friday, the Carter Cowboys proved that the game is won in the trenches.
2010 prospect Dalvin Glass was a big reason for the Carter offensive line success, literally. At 6-foot-3, 270 pounds, Glass is a load as a junior but he showed on Friday that he is more than just a big body. He is strong, physical and he can move.
Glass was happiest about the surprisingly decisive win, not because of his dominating night but because of the team's success.
"We played good," Glass said. "We worked as a team and that was the main part right there, playing as a team."
The team's success came primarily on the ground where Carter pounded out a bruising ground game that controlled the clock and set the tone all evening. Despite that, Glass has a surprising answer when asked what his biggest strength is as a lineman.
"Pass blocking," he said. "I'm a good pass blocker because of my feet. I've got really good feet."
His feet and his strength have already got several schools very interested in him as a prospect, among the schools showing him interest are some heavy hitters.
"I'm hearing from Texas A&M, Kansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana Tech. There are a lot of schools I'm hearing from," he said. "I like Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Texas. I like a lot of schools."
Aside from recruiting, Glass has a simple goal for his senior season.
"Go to the playoffs and win state."
At 1-0, Dallas Carter is off to the right start.
