LYMAN, MS (WLOX) - Harrison Central senior Tito Windham started off the season at quarterback and guided the Red Rebels to victories over Stone County and West Harrison.
Besides playing two games at quarterback, the 5-11, 190 pound standout excelled from his defensive back position. He piled up 58 tackles and intercepted 6 passes as the Red Rebels cracked the 6A State playoffs.
Windham was a special All-around player, with his ability to throw the football, run the football, catch the football and tackle players who had the football.
"I feel like it was great." stated Windham. I could have done better but I feel like I had a great season. "I know how to read the hips real good and I get out of my breaks and I've got real good speed."
Harrison Central head coach Steve Jones says Windham was special.
"Tito's biggest plus to me is he's just a football player. He understands the game both offensively and defensively. Jones added,"He's just got a natural instinct for a football game whether it's offense or defense and I think that's his biggest plus besides his speed. He's able to make reads and anticipate what's coming at him defensively."
Windham will sign with Oklahoma on National Signing Day on February 5th. The Sooners showed the most interest early and Tito is ready to make an impact on the college level with Oklahoma.
"Well they were the first school and they seemed like they really liked me and I like the coaches and all the players. It's like a family up there," Williams said.
