Peculiar (Mo.) Raymore-Peculiar quarterback Carson Coffman is trying to lead his team back to ultimate victory with a new season awaiting him.
After taking home the title last year, the 6-foot-2, 181-pound Coffman is ready to go for it all once again. With his individual recruitment starting to take flight, the signal-caller is holding down quite a busy schedule along with numerous expectations.
"I'm hoping to repeat as state champs," Coffman said. "I think we have the offense to do it. Hopefully our defense can step up and make some stops."
While throwing the ball this summer has been a regular affair, his recruitment is starting to pick up some steam as well. North Texas was the first school to offer and now two other schools have started making contact via mail.
"I'm probably hearing from Missouri (David Yost) and Wisconsin the most, other than North Texas," Coffman said. "It's just been letters but it really started after the one-day camp at Wisconsin. They told me they have four quarterbacks that they've offered so they're waiting to see if any of the commit."
Don't' expect Coffman to pull an early trigger.
"I'm not close to anything at all," Coffman said about a future decision. "I'm still waiting. I'm not sure who's going to offer or not. I want to wait and find out what's going to happen."
As for favorites, Coffman is listing four.
"It's Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, and Wisconsin probably," he said. "I'm just the most familiar with those schools right now."
Coffman is rated as the No. 24 overall prospect in the state of Missouri.
