An Orlando area player that is attracting attention from colleges is Lyman High School's Travo Woods. The athlete plays several different positions and has garnered two scholarship offers.
Lyman High School is located in Longwood (Fla.) just north of Orlando. The school doesn't typically send prospects to Division I-A schools but that looks to change in 2003. Dozens of colleges came in to watch practice and Travo Woods estimated he received 15 to 20 phone calls during May. So far he has two offers.
"I have offers from Auburn and Iowa State," Woods said.
Woods said he did not have any favorite schools at this time. UCF is also showing strong interest.
Travo Woods is 5-foot-11, 170 pounds, and runs the forty-yard dash in 4.42 seconds. He will either play wide receiver or cornerback at the next level.
"Some people want me to play DB but others want me to play receiver," Woods said.
As a junior for the Lyman Greyhounds, Woods picked up 1,000 all-purpose yards be it receiving, rushing, or returning kicks or punts.
"I play primarily on offense but they'll put me on defense against another good receiver to stick him," Woods said. "I also played running back for like four games during the season."
Travo Woods was named second team All-Conference and All-County following his junior season. He was first team All-Conference in track. He lists a 3.0 core grade point average but has not taken the ACT or SAT yet.
