DALLAS - Dallas (Texas) Highland Park opened up the season with an impressive 48-28 victory over Everman (Texas) in the Tim Landry Classic at SMU's Ford Stadium this weekend. The Scots' offense was somewhat unstoppable during the contest.
The favorite target in the passing game was wide receiver Dalton Stogner. The 6-foot-4, 206-pound senior showed a knack for getting open as well as very good hands. It seems colleges were aware of him before the game as he has his first scholarship offer.
"I have an offer from North Texas," Stogner said. "I also have a promise to be on the team at Columbia. UNT offered me back in April."
Stogner is in contact with several other schools as well and could add more offers.
"I'm also talking to Stanford, Tulsa, SMU and Arizona State," he said. "I would say maybe either Tulsa or Stanford (would be the closest to offering)."
Stogner was able to visit a couple of those campuses this summer.
"I visited Stanford and I loved it," he said. "It was beautiful and they have a really program out there. I also visited Tulsa and really liked it there too."
Already a big receiver, there is a chance Stogner could make the move to tight end at the next level. He is okay with that.
"A little bit of both," he said. "Some schools see me as a receiver. Then, schools like Tulsa and SMU, they see me as a slotback type of player. It really doesn't matter to me where I play so it's not a big deal."
Stogner has not "
Stogner has not yet set up any official visits but he does admit to having a pair of favorites at the moment.
"I really love Tulsa," he said. "I like the coaches there a lot. Stanford has a beautiful campus and I really like them too. Those two are definitely standing out."
As a junior in 2010 Stogner caught 67 passes for 1,239 yards and 16 touchdowns.
