Collins makes playoffs thanks to star recruits

Klein Collins, guided by Cameron Luke and Michael Goodson, has made the playoffs in just its third season in a district dominated by Lufkin, The Woodlands and Klein schools.
Senior quarterback Cameron Luke runs the spread-option offense to perfection, making it the Houston-area's No. 1 statistical offense. Luke, who has an offer from SMU, hasn't been able to show off his throwing talents that much in the run-oriented offense.
"I get that question all the time," Klein Collins coach Ronnie Feldman said. "He plays three sports so we haven't been able to do a lot of quarterback training with him. He has a tremendous arm and has all the tools, but just needs a little mechanical work."
Luke has 637 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns and 808 yards passing and nine touchdowns through eight games, leading his team to a 7-1 record. He is receiving interest also from TCU, Houston and Rice.
Goodson, who is only a junior, will be the program's signature recruit. The 6-0, 190-pound rusher has 839 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground and 266 receiving yards with five touchdowns. He has also returned three kicks for touchdowns this season.
"I coached in the area where when Eric Dickerson was at Sealy," Feldman said. "I don't like to compare kids, but he reminds me a lot of Eric. Michael is an upright runner with tremendous speed and toughness like Eric. He's a unique player that has all the tools and has a strong passion to play football. He will be a big-time recruit."
College recruiters will be lined at the door as soon as Goodson's junior season is complete.
Senior kicker Garrett LeFevre committed to the Houston Cougars been sidelined for the past three games with injuries.
