Five-star wide receiver David Ausberry (6-4, 217, 4.5) from Lemoore, Calif., achieved a goal that all true competitors yearn for. Ausberry and his teammates was the surprise winner of their championship on December 9th when they defeated Oakhurst (Calif.) Yosemite.
"Winning the championship was sweet," Ausberry said. "We went up the mountain, and beat them good, 48-16."
"They (Yosemite) were rated No. 1," Ausberry said. "On our way to the championship we also beat the No. 2 team and the No. 4 rated team. We were rated No. 5."
"It feels good finally getting a ring," Ausberry said. "Everybody thought we would come in and get beat by last season's champ. We finally got healthy and when we did, we beat everybody."
"During the game it was 25 to 30 degrees," Ausberry said. "It feels great."
"I have narrowed things down to USC, Georgia and Ohio State," Ausberry said. "I'm going to let my decision known on January 7th at the US Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas."
Ohio State and Georgia have already had in-house visits with Ausberry. USC were scheduled to be in the house last night (December 15th).
