Five star Wildcat

By Ryan Peterson - bio | email

WHITEHOUSE, TX (KLTV) -     Every year Rivals dot com ranks the top high school seniors in the nation.  Only 16 kids in the entire country are considered five star recruits.  One of those 16 kids can be found in Whitehouse.

As the Wildcats get ready for the playoffs, no one can seem to stop Trey Metoyer.

"You'll be making a block, look up and hear the crowd screaming," said Whitehouse Center Scott Sanders."

"You look down field and he's (Trey) seven feet in the air making the catch," said Whitehouse Tackle Melvin Moorman.  "It's crazy."

Metoyer says it's all reaction.

"I jump, I catch," he said.  "It doesn't really surprise me. I just go out there, do what I do and make plays."

A lot of plays. Metoyer has 21 touchdown catches in ten games. The future Oklahoma Sooner has scored at least once in every game this season.

"I'm not really a cocky person," said Metoyer.  "I'm going to be real with you. No one has stopped me yet."

Perhaps the best high school receiver in the country, Metoyer doesn't care about playoff stats, he wants a historic playoff run.

"We've been with each other since pop warner, so now is the time," he said.  "It's the last time we play with each other and we've got to go out there and make it happen."

Metoyer's teammates say they've enjoyed playing with one of the best.

"It makes us feel good because we've gotten to play along side the big talk in (East Texas)," said Moorman.  "It's pretty cool."

    One search on twitter of the hashtag "bEASTtexas", and you will be scrolling for days. The amount of talent that comes from this region is mind blowing. It is even crazier to see around 10 Major League and minor league baseball guys working out together in one room.
