One glimpse of Stephenville wide receiver Blake Aragon in action and it’s not hard to imagine the 6’4, 185-pound prospect playing football at the next level following his final season among the high school ranks.
While in College Station for the Texas 7on7 Championships, Aragon had his way with a variety of secondary units, seemingly cementing himself as an unstoppable red zone target and third down option.
“I feel like I did good, but as a collective, winning is what I’m really worried about,” Aragon told TexasHSFootball. “I know we’re in the consolation bracket, but winning is still the most important thing to me.”
Stephenville certainly saw its share of winning, although it primarily came during Day Two of the event in the Consolation Bracket. Following a narrow 34-33 victory over Gilmer, Aragon credited a sense of urgency for Stephenville starting the day on a 2-0 run in a win or go home setting.
“I think if we just have a sense of urgency and just do our job, everything else will just unfold,” Aragon said.
Stephenville escaped Canton 27-26 the following round before knocking off Bay City 21-14 in the semi-finals. A five-game winning streak game to an end in the championship game of the Consolation Bracket, though, with a 33-13 loss to Heritage. The tournament didn’t end the way Stephenville may have hoped, but it gave room for Aragon to adopt some high-powered expectations in 2017.
“As a team, I think we should throw for at least 500 [yards] every game,” Aragon said. “For myself, I don’t think there’s any reason why I shouldn’t have 150-plus yards each game.”
If such expectations proved true, expect the Central Texas talent to become a hot commodity on recruiting big boards throughout his senior season. To date, Texas State and Abilene Christian have extended offers.
“I really enjoy those schools and I’m looking forward to going to visit them.”
