Houston C.E. King is not a traditional powerhouse and the school is definitely not known for producing Division I football talent. However, new head coach Lydell Wilson is trying to change that notion.
Formerly at Lamar Consolidated where he won a state championship and coached Oregon State standouts James Rodgers and Jacquizz Rodgers, Wilson is well on his way of changing the culture at C.E. King.
Wilson has a young team returning and he is very high on one of his upcoming juniors. So are the college coaches that came through the school this spring. Defensive end Everett Anderson has already been drawing attention from several programs.

"I've heard from a few schools," the 6-foot-3, 225-pound Anderson said. "I've heard from TCU and UT. My coach told me OU was really interested in me but I haven't talked to them yet."
Anderson plans to get his name out even more by hitting the camp circuit this summer. He will start off with a trip to an in-state school this Sunday.
"I'm going to camps at UTSA and UT," he said. "I'm supposed to go to (Texas) A&M this weekend. I'm also going to TCU later on this summer."
Anderson has a long way to go until signing day for the class of 2013. However, he admits to having an early favorite.
"Once it comes time, I hope UT offers," he said. "It's in the family. My whole family likes UT. That's the goal I have is to go to UT."
