When talking about the best offensive linemen in Texas, if you leave out the name of Waxahachie, Texas, offensive guard Marlon Winn you’d be sadly mistaken.
Winn is getting plenty of attention from the college coaches and that’s only going to increase with a solid senior season. A season that starts with a battle against hated rival Ennis this upcoming Friday night.
“It’s going to be a whole lot better this year,” Winn, who is 6-foot-5 and 280 pounds, said. “No more blowouts. They’ve gotten the best of us the past few years, but this time it’s different. We’re going to give it to them. We’re a much better team now.”
And Winn is a much better player, too.
“My pass blocking is greatly improved,” Winn said. “I worked really hard at becoming a better all-around offensive lineman.”
Winn was already good enough to earn scholarship offers from Arizona, Baylor, Missouri, Oklahoma State and SMU. At this point his top teams are Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and Arizona.
“Oklahoma State and Texas A&M, they’re on top,” he said. “But I would also put Texas Tech and Arizona up there too. A&M hasn’t offered me and they’re not trying to rush me.”
Winn earned second-team all-district honors as a junior.
