Dodge City (Kan.) Community College quarterback Omar Haugabook put on a show for the Jayhawk Junior College Conference during the 2004 season. The 6-foot-2, 225-pounder was named first-team all-conference as a freshman and will return to the Conquistadors for his sophomore season.
"Omar is going to get a lot of attention from coaches on the recruiting trail," Dodge City assistant coach Andy Siegal said. "He's a good one and he showed us this year."
On the year, the Florida native passed for 2,627 yards and 23 touchdowns while rushing for 223 yards and two scores.
"He fit our offense just right," Siegal said. "He is a dual-threat guy who can hurt you with either his arms or his feet. He showed that this year and he's just going to get better."
Haugabook has many schools recruiting him, but he has yet to receive a scholarship offer.
"I don't know of any offers he has, yet," Siegal said. "I know it won't take long for him to get one. He will be getting out in December and that will make him a lot more attractive to some schools. We've already heard from Kansas State, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Florida, Oklahoma State and Florida State about him."
Siegal believes recruiting services will be high on Haugabook when the time comes to do the rankings of junior college players.
"I've already had one person tell me he will be the No. 1 rated junior college player in the nation," the coach said. "That would be a high honor for him. I think he is one of the better ones out there for next year, and I will just leave it at that."
