Kilgore Receiver Aaron Foy Invited to Texas Top 100 Camp
Kilgore wide receiver Aaron Foy has been selected to participate in an invitation-only football camp called the Texas Top 100.
It's put on by Next Level Athlete, which has two camps a year. It will take place in Lancaster on Jan. 27. Players are selected from hundreds of nominees throughout the state of Texas. The camp features one-on-one situational drills. Each player will have a video sent out to major colleges throughout the country.
"It is a blessing," said the 5-10, 165-pound speedster. "They sent me a letter and told me to call them and sign up. I'm very excited."
Foy just completed his junior year at Kilgore, finishing with 22 catches for 479 yards and five touchdowns. Foy helped lead the Bulldogs to the Class 3A Division I state semifinals. He notched five catches for 78 yards and one touchdown in the Bulldogs' 42-32 loss to the eventual state champion Stephenville Yellowjackets. Foy was also selected to the 16-3A all-district first team.
"The University of Houston is recruiting me the hardest right now. UT-San Antonio has also started showing interest," Foy said.
Foy talked about some of the things he wants to work on at the camp and in the offseason.
"I want to work on leadership, and just being a better team leader first," he said. "I also want to work on my hands and catching ability. Just my overall skills, vision and route-running. I can always get better."
