Maddox hopes to find the right opportunity
After enjoying a solid prep career in Kansas City, Maddox signed on with Butler and played there as a redshirt freshman in 2009, getting 72 carries and totaling 472 yards and five touchdowns for the Grizzlies.
After transferring to Independence during the summer, Maddox worked his way into the starting lineup, but split carries with two other talented backs - Stephen Houston and James Baker -- racking up 450 yards and four scores.
"All three of us started, but we run the triple-option, so you really don't know who is going to get the ball," Maddox said. "Sometimes you would be the 'go-to' guy, the one who got the most carries, but you didn't always get the most focus every week.
"When you got the chance to get carries, you had to be ready and make the most of it."
Recruiting hasn't really gotten underway for Maddox, partially because he will have to take a class in the summer, but he hopes that once his film gets out, that someone will take a chance on him.
"I know I can help a school and play at the next level, I just hope somebody gives me a chance," Maddox noted. "I want to play at the highest level I can, but I mainly just want to find a place that I can play and fit in and the rest will take care of itself."
Maddox will finish up his degree this summer and he will have two to play two wherever he ends up.
