Quarterback Lucas DeVilliers has been on fire for Cypress (Texas) Cy-Woods. In its first year of varsity football, the Wildcats boast one of the top statistical leaders in the city of Houston.
DeVilliers has completed 58 of 89 attempts for 841 yards in Coach David Jones' high-flying offense. Most impressively, he has eight touchdowns to zero interceptions. He also has another five touchdowns rushing for Cy-Woods, who is 2-1 on the season.
The 6-foot quarterback has peaked the interest of some Division I schools, including Boise State and Army. Army has offered while Boise State is requesting film and has made contact with DeVilliers.
"He's the best-kept secret in the area," Jones said. "He just didn't have a lot of exposure because we didn't play varsity football last season, but he's the real thing. Whoever gets him is getting a steal. He will have his choices when it's all said and done."
Another Wildcat getting on the BCS Conference map is Justin Washington. The 6-foot-3 defensive end has dominated in the three games he has played and has the tape to prove it.
"I've personally called Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State about him," Jones said. "He's a big-time prospect that no one knows about. Everyone needs a defensive tackle like him, everyone."
Washington has offers from Utah, UTEP and Arizona, and was just offered by Oklahoma State.
