Here is what David had to say when he sat down to chat with us:
Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself. How long have you been playing and when did you realize you wanted to play in college?
A: I’m a senior at Indian Creek High School in Wintersville, Ohio. I play quarterback in football and center field in baseball.

This season, I was the starting quaterback for Indian Creek. I set the school single season yardage record with 1519 yards, single season touchdown record with 18, single game yardage record with 308 yards and single game touchdown record with 4 TDs (2 times!).
Q: Tell us about your current high school team.
A: Our team ended the season with an 8-3 record, qualifying for the state playoffs for the first time in 15 years. Our 3 losses came to teams with a combined record of 30-1.
Q: What are you looking for in a collegiate program?
A: I am looking for a program with a winning tradition and one that I would be able to contribute to.
Q: Do you know what you want to major in? If so, what?
A: I plan on majoring in education with a goal of becoming a high school teacher and football coach.
Q: What 3 words would you use to describe yourself as a student-athlete?
A: Leader. Dedicated. Focused.
Q: Describe for us your recruiting process thus far -- what have you been doing?
A: As far as recruiting, I have been visiting some local colleges and have attended a few football games. I have been in contact with a few college coaches and am scheduling some visits.
Q: What do you like most about the BeRecruited service?
A: The thing I like about the BeRecruited service is being able to get exposure to colleges and coaches that I normally wouldn't have.
