Galena Park (Texas) North Shore is a football factory. Coach David Aymond has been blessed with an embarrassment of riches over the past 15 years. The next three seasons will be no different.
Offensive lineman Trey Hopkins is already headed to the University of Texas in 2010 and receiver DeAndrew White will have a 'Who's Who' list of Division I schools to choose from.
"I was just offered by Oklahoma and Florida on Monday, and I think LSU will offer soon," he said. "I really want to get my decision behind me before the season."

White is a favorite to tear up the state's track meet this spring in five events and will run in several national summer track events as well.
"I want to get to Florida and Oklahoma on some unofficials this summer," he said. "It's going to be busy."
Defensive backs Alton Demby and Larry Stephens have also been offer this spring. Both have been offered by SMU and Demby holds one from Houston.
"I really like Houston," Demby said. "I like the idea of staying close to home."
Stephens will be unofficially visiting Vanderbilt in weeks to come and feels like an offer will be extended.
Defensive lineman Jarrod Foster, receiver Tim Cornett and Tracy Woods are also prospects for 2010. Foster emerged last season for the Mustangs, breaking into a defensive line that send three to Division I schools. Cornett will play opposite of white, and Woods is the most bruising back in the city.
Class of 2011 is headlined by offensive lineman Sedrick Flowers, who was offered last season by Texas A&M.
"I was surprised to get offered so early and ever since it has been pretty busy as far as recruiting goes," he said. "I've always loved Florida, but also like schools that have an engineering program."
Other 2011 prospects include linebacker Derrick Matthews, cornerback Miketavious Jones and defensive end Jacoby Harrison. Matthews started as a sophomore while the 6-foot-4 Harrison moved in from basketball.
"Matthews is a talented linebacker and Harrison's upside is unbelievable," defensive coordinator John Kay said. "He has a major Division I frame but we'll see how serious he is about football this spring."
Quarterback Keenon Gibson (6-foot-3, 200-pounds) is also an intriguing prospect for 2011. Gibson reminds coaches of Bobby Reid with his size and athleticism, and will take over the Mustangs offense next year.
"He's tall and very accurate with the ball," Aymond said. "He throws the deep ball well and can really run. He has all the tools to be special."
