Sharp Delivers Once Again

Humble Summer Creek QB Aaron Sharp

FOX Sports NEXT is in the streets this fall to bring you all the coverage from across the Midlands region. Recently, we caught up with Summer Creek quarterback Aaron Sharp from Humble, Texas. We spoke with him post game for his thoughts and a brief recruiting update…

Early in his high school career, his name was already starting to generate some buzz. And while a number of players catch the early hype, many don't live up to it. 

That is not the case with Humble (TX) Summer Creek quarterback Aaron Sharp. The 2014 player has been doing his thing since he was a freshman and a couple years later, his progression has been right one time.

"There's still work to be done. But my main goal was working on my throwing mechanics and touching up my drop steps," Sharp said. I want to get better at coming out and making good reads."

Well he did that and much more as the Summer Creek team remains undefeated after a 45-14 win over Kingwood Park on last Friday night. The game started a bit sluggish, but once the momentum got going, it never slowed. 

And the 6-foot-3, 187-pound Sharp was at the forefront of the push. 

"We came out slow in first half and picked it. We stepped it up and stuck to the game plan," Sharp said. "I think me starting to run and make some plays with my feet helps out the offense. It keeps the defense watching me when I roll out. That's a big contribution."

In this game his feet was a factor for sure. When Sharp was flushed out of the pocket, he kept his eyes down field, many times delivering a strike. In the end, he finished with 256 yards on 13-of-19 passing and three touchdowns. 

Those numbers, and of course his high ceiling, are likely the reason he has coaches from across the country looking for his services for the 2014 class. So far, UTEP has stepped up to be his first verbal offer, but that could change as Sharp continues to dominate and put these types of numbers.

"No more offers, but I'm getting strong likes from Northwestern and Texas Tech. Those are the main ones," Sharp said. "As for visits (game day), I went to Texas A&M early against Florida. I'm supposed to go back for the game against LSU."

In addition to that, Sharp said that he will make the trip to Lubbock to see the Red Raiders take on Texas. He will likely make other, but has not yet made other plans other than those stated.

"It's still early and I have work to do, but I have to proud of where I am (in recruiting). I thank God for giving me the ability to do what I do," Sharp said

Through six games, Sharp has 1,671 yards with 21 touchdowns to only two interceptions.
