( One of Oregon’s top WR’s Lawrence Wilson 6-3 205 Sr- Central Catholic HS)
One of the Northwest’s top receivers, Lawrence Wilson (6-3 205 Sr. WR) of Central Catholic, is currently being courted by the top academic schools in the country and he’s is out on the east coast having a look at what they have to offer.
Speaking with him from DC Wilson was excited about his trip thus far and is happy about his options, " I really like it out here and what they have to offer, my top three as of right now are Georgetown, Princeton and Harvard". It is tradition within the Wilson family to make a trip like this before deciding on which college to attend so Lawrence is soaking it all in.
" Georgetown told me that I have a spot on their roster so that is exciting, and we are leaving here and visiting Virginia, Duke, North Carolina, and William & Mary". Wilson loved Princeton and Harvard and did well at camp so he will have a tough decision to make once that time comes.
Lawrence is abnormally smart sporting a 4.1 GPA while getting a 30 on his ACT, and taking all AP and honors classes. NEI has Wilson ranked as one of Oregon’s top 5 receivers for the class of 2013 as his upside is off the charts. In 2011 he made 22 catches for 408 yards and 6 Tds, averaging 18.5 yards per catch. Outstanding numbers considering how much CC spread the ball around.
Give Head Coach Steve Pyne credit as the Rams will play maybe the most brutal non league schedule we have seen in northwest history to start the season. CC has to deal with playing in the Mt Hood Conference which can be less than competitive, so it is essential to get quality non conference competition.
Check CC’s schedule.. Skyview (WA), Sheldon, Lake Oswego, and Jesuit. Skyview made it to last years Washington state title game, Sheldon lost last years Oregon title game, Lake Oswego returns as the state champions, and Jesuit will be ranked #1 state wide and in the national polls. It doesn’t get any tougher then that, but that’s the point.
Wilson has been working hard with his teammates in the weight room and during 7 on 7’s. They will come in ranked the #3 team on NEI’s initial Class 6a Top 10, and are looking to break the Mt Hood Conference jiinx and get a state title.
"Its surreal that the season’s less then a month away, and that its already my senior year". He continued, " We have had the goal of winning a championship for a long time and that hasn’t changed, I think this could be a special year".
Lawrence is a class kid and someone we will continue to root for over the season. Regardless of what he does on the football field, Wilson will be a kid that does big things in life. We can’t say enough good things about the kid from Portland
