Bush Season Finishes Strong
Lots of progress is being made at Bush High School in Richmond, Texas. For the first time the Broncos not only made it to the postseason, but even won a playoff game. So truly things are on the up and up.
And to cap things off, at least from the football side of things, this past National Signing Day had coach Allen Aldridge smiling from ear to ear. That is because he has six players who signed letters of intent on signing day.
“It means a lot to the program, especially since this is the first year making it to the playoffs. We are moving in the right direction,” Aldridge said.
No doubt. Headlining the group was the team’s MVP in defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah, who is headed to Oklahoma State. The 6-foot-4, 246-pound defender Ogbah finished with over 50 tackles and six sacks.
While Ogbah demanded a lot of attention, from college coaches and opposing offensive lineman, Aldridge spoke of another player on the defensive line who finished with an impressive career.
“We have a defensive end going to Cornell. I think that is big because it sends a message to the young athletes saying that you have to take care of those grades first,” Aldridge said of Debo Sodeke. “An Ivy League program is definitely a plus.”
Staying with the defense, secondary players Darius Reed and Prince Ene are both going to the Southland Conference signing with Central Arkansas while projected outside linebacker Dontae Armstrong will be at Midwestern State.
Running back Jalynn McCain, the Broncos’ big man in the back field is headed to the West Coast with his ink to San Jose State.
“He’ll do well there. The coaches are excited about him (McCain) coming up there,” Aldridge said.
