COLLINS HILL HEAD COACH LARRY SHERRILL
"T.J. brings great intensity to the game. He truly is one of those guys who has a motor that never stops. He was our leading tackler as a junior and senior while playing tackle."
"T.J. also possesses really good hands for a lineman and is a tremendous competitor. He is truly relentless, to the point where he gets after players in practice who aren't doing things the right way. He's been a great leader for our squad."
"T.J.'s also young - he's going to enter college as a 17-year-old. He's a tremendous talent and just needs to continue doing what he's been doing. Nobody is going to work harder."
