CEDAR PARK, Texas -- Anytime you open the football season by thumping a rival, it’s a good start to the year. So consider Chet Moss a happy man. Cedar Park took down Round Rock Westwood, 31-7 last week.
“That’s a game that in the past we’ve come out flat for and I don’t think we did,” Moss said. “I think because we’ve lost to them every year except one that we’ve been here, we came in with a little more motivation. It felt good to get that first win.”
Moss said the one thing that he’s improved on the most over the past year is in making his reads, something he said can be directly attributed to Will Muschamp. Moss spent a lot of time on the Texas campus in the spring and summer and he said the time with Muschamp, who recruited Moss, was very well spent.
“It’s helped a whole lot getting to learn from one of the best defensive coaches in the country,” Moss said. “I’ve been busy lately and haven’t had the time to get over there.”
Moss has served as the unofficial recruiting coordinator of the 2011 for the Longhorns. He’s taken it upon himself to keep in contact with all members of the class. With the Longhorn season getting started this weekend, Moss said his house is about to packed with his future teammates on the weekends.
“Some of the guys have asked to stay with me during home games when they come visit – my parents are building a whole new game room so we can have extra room,” Moss said. “I talk to all of the guys, I love them all and I can’t wait to start playing with them.”
* Moss’ father Max Moss played football at Rice. But Moss said he’s unsure whether or not he’ll be attending the Rice game on Saturday.
* Moss said he was happy about the recent commitment of Cibolo Steele running back Malcolm Brown to Texas. He said he would call Brown during the process and tell him not to get too comfortable with Alabama, to which Moss said Brown would laugh. Moss called Brown, “the top on the wedding cake,” for Texas’ 2011 class.
* Moss is one of several Longhorn commits that plans on enrolling in January and will go through spring football. Belton quarterback David Ash, Brownwood wide receiver Jaxon Shipley, El Paso El Dorado tight end M.J. McFarland, Klein Collins offensive tackle Garrett Greenlea and Angleton athlete Quandre Diggs are all set to enroll early.
