Abilene High junior Timothy Outlaw freely admits it was difficult waiting his turn behind an outstanding group of senior wideouts last season.
As a sophomore on varsity, he respected his older teammates and understood why there were others ahead of him in the receiver rotation. But as a competitor, it was tough watching those players make the plays he wanted to be making.
A year later, Outlaw’s opportunity has finally arrived. And after watching players such as Jeshari Houston (40-713, 9 TDs receiving), Nate Seballos (34-671, 7 TDs) and Frederick “Pooh” Johnson (31-443, 3 TDs) emerge as big-play receivers for the Eagles in 2020, he’s ready to assume the role as a go-to guy.
