Whitehouse WR named Army All-American

By Coleman Swierc

WHITEHOUSE, TX (KLTV) - Each year, thousands of high school teenagers play football.

The very best are named to their all-state teams.

The elite, are named All-Americans.

In Whitehouse on Wednesday, record setting wide receiver Trey Metoyer, was selected as an Army All-American.

He is one of just 90 players in America to receive the honor.

And now joins a very elite list.

"It is exciting, to know that Adrian Peterson, Reggie Bush, DeSean Jackson, Tim Tebow Vince Young, all of them have played in this game," said Metoyer, "Look where they are at now, that just gives me the drive, if they can do it, I can do it."

Metoyer is on the verge of setting several Texas high school records.

His 242 catches are 2nd all time, just 10 away from the all-time record.

"It is important to me, and important to everybody else, but when it comes down to it, it is just who wants it more and who wants is the most, and I feel like I am going to do whatever it takes to get there."

Trey and the rest of the Wildcat team, will face Mesquite Poteet in the 2nd round at 12:30 on Satuday from Corsicana.

Metoyer will play one last game after the end of the year, the All-American game in January in San Antonio.

Head coach Randy McFarlin, was also invited to the All-American Coaches Clinic in San Antonio.
