Scofield Garnering Early Interest

St. Thomas More High safety prospect Sam Scofield played multiple positions last season on the Cougar defense and recruiters are starting to take notice of the talented junior athlete.

All Sam Scofield accomplished as a junior was finish the season with as Defensive MVP of District 3-5A, with 90 total tackles, 2 blocked punts with 1 TD, 5 sacks and 4 fumble recoveries. And he accomplished this after starting the season out at cornerback, before being moved to the safety position later in the season. The "6-2", 185-pound Scofield has shown enough of his skills to attract attention from football programs like Tulsa, Texas A&M, Tulane and Louisiana.

"Texas A&M, Tulsa, UL and Tulane have dropped by school and spoke to coach about me," Sam said. "Coaches Turner from Texas A&M and Norvell from Tulsa both stated that they will be back during spring football to watch me play. Tulane came by and visit, as well as Coach Fouquier from UL."

It doesn't hurt to have Cameron DeJean as your good friend, as Cameron happen to mention Sam to the Tulane coaching staff.

"Cameron is one of my best friends and he talked to the Tulane coach about me and he came by school," stated Scofield. He wants me to attend their local camp and come in for their junior day."

Sam Scofield hasn't had time to really think about which football camps and junior day's he will attend, as the talented junior plays center field and pitches for the STM baseball team. Scofield has recently been clocked at 91-92 mph on the mound.

"This is really my first full year starting for our baseball team playing centerfield," Sam said. "It's been fun, but I haven't had much time to think about football recruiting or much of anything else right now."

With Texas A&M and Tulsa wanting Scofield to visit during "Junior Day", has Sam heard anything from the area's local football program UL?

"I haven't heard anything about their junior day," stated Scofield. "Once they send something out on their junior day and camp dates, I will have an idea which dates I can attend."

Sam Scofield attended the "National Underclassmen Combine" in Baton Rouge on Feb. 28th and was named in the top ten defensive backs participating. Scofield ran a 4.51 forty, had a 32" vertical and a 4.32 total pro agility.

Scofield is an honor roll student and has scored a 25 on his first ACT test this year. Recommended Stories
