Dodge City LB hopes to have options
"I actually went to Coffeyville out of high school and I redshirted there in 2010," Springer told JCFootball.com recently. "After a year there, I got my release and come here to Dodge City and I played this past fall.
"It was a good move for me. We have some really good players here and I think we're going to be pretty tough this coming season after playing together for a year."
As an outside linebacker, Springer put up solid numbers this past season totaling 62 tackles, 11.5 tackles-for-loss and three sacks.
"We didn't really play a weakside or strongside spot," Springer noted. "We just played on the right or left side so we had to play both spots.
"I'm at my best attacking the line (of scrimmage) and stopping the run, but I can drop back pretty well too and I feel like I'm a good blitzer too."
This offseason, Springer said he's been working hard in the weight room, hoping to get stronger so he can hold the point even better than he did last season and he is also doing speed drills as well to try and get faster.
"I want to improve in everything from my strength to my speed to my knowledge of the game," Springer said. "I feel like you always have to improve or you won't be better, you will get worse."
On the recruiting front, Springer has yet to hear from any four-year schools, but he hopes during spring ball that he can show coaches he's worth their attention.
"My coaches seem to think that I will get a lot of attention during the spring when schools can come out and watch me," Springer said. "I'm just getting my highlights out right now and hopefully schools like what they see and decide I'm a player that can help them."
Springer is on pace to finish up his AA degree in December and plans to sign with a school at that time.
