COLLEGE STATION, Texas - It has been a whirlwind year for Lake Travis (Texas) dual-threat quarterback Todd Reesing who broke the 3,000 yard passing mark, picked up all-state honors, and made his commitment to Kansas earlier this month.
With his team participating at this year's Fox Sports Net Southwest 7-on-7 state championship, it was all about business as usual as the 6-foot, 180-pound passer was just focused on building a bond with his teammates.
"We have all the skills to make it to the championship," Reesing said. "It's really just about getting it done out their on the field under the lights. This is something that we've been working on at events like this and all summer."

His journey to become one of the top sleeper prospects in the state of Texas was a long one, but Reesing is staring at a possible playoff run and what looks to be a successful college career.
Coach Mark Mangino and the Jayhawks made it clear that Reesing was their guy very early on.
"When I met him, he kept telling me how he wasn't concerned with how tall I was or how fast I was," Reesing said. "He told me what he was concerned about was my quick release and my decision making on the run. Everything he focused on were my strengths."
"After seeing a whole lot of campuses, it was just clear Kansas was where I wanted to go."
With his recruitment sealed, he still looks back on what was a great experience.
"I think it's been great meeting all these different coaches and getting to know a lot of different people along the way," he said. "I'm solid for Kansas and I'm done, but it was something that a lot of people don't get the chance to experience."
"My family is excited and I just can't wait to get up there for my official visit."
