COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Baytown (Texas) Lee now has the bragging rights of being the only team to take home two titles from the Fox Sports Net Southwest 7-on-7 state championship and junior-to-be quarterback Jeremy Moses showed all the signs of a star.
Coach Dick Olin has seen plenty of quarterbacks head to the Division I level after spending time at Lee, including current Iowa quarterback Drew Tate. With Olin's experience, his thoughts on Moses are quite evidence of another big time prospect under his coaching.
"Moses is a young quarterback that threw over 1,600 yards in 6 games and just a great prospect for the future," Moses said. "He has outstanding potential for being so young and has that skill that you look for across the board."

The 7-on-7 tournament was another chance for the 6-foot-1, 180-pound signal caller to shine and did it well with star receivers James Cleveland and Jonathan Williams being his prime targets.
Moses, also joined receiver Cleveland as two Baytown Lee players making the 7-on-7 all-tournament team.
"Everybody learned the routes and got those down better as the summer went along," Moses said. "It helps not only for the tournament but for the season as well. It's a great two minute workout for our offense and what we can do come fall."
Being only a 2007 prospect, Moses is already taking in camps and trying to not only improve his skills but check out some schools early on in his process.
"I went to the Purdue QB camp and I did alright there," Moses said. "I tried to make it to Utah but didn't. It's early, but I guess when the time comes I would like to hear from a team like Texas or really anyone with a spread offense that gets the ball around."
Lee struggled last season and is looking to get back on track. Moses, who is taking the reigns of the offense, feels confident about his organization. Coach Olin feels like in a district as tough as theirs, you never know until you step on the field.
"You can have a great team and I think we return a lot of skill, but in our district now matter how good we are you can still get beat on any given night," Olin said. "No matter what you bring to the table, it could be all for not depending on who you play on the schedule."
