Yuba's Flores is ready to impress
"I decided to come to Yuba just because it was local and because the coaches here were good guys," Flores told JCFootball.com. "I have been happy here and it was a good season last year, but we want it to be better this year."
On last year's team that went 7-4, Flores started at the weakside (WIL) linebacker spot for Yuba and finished second on the team with 60 tackles and 8.5 tackles-for-loss while also notching 1.5 sacks and two interceptions.
"I feel comfortable playing there," Flores said. "I can read things well and then I go and make the play. I'm working a lot on my speed right now. I haven't been lifting as much of the heavy weights as I had been. I've been doing more of the 'band-training' where it's more about explosive movements and lighter weights.
"I think it's really helped me a lot."
On the recruiting front, Flores has yet to haul in his first offer, but he does have a few schools showing him some interest.
"I've been talking a little with Tulsa, TCU and Nevada so far," Flores noted. "Right now I've been sending out my film to a lot of schools and I'm sorta just waiting on feedback from them.
"I feel I can play at the next level and that I just need someone to see what I can do and like me enough to give me a shot."
Flores is on pace to graduate next spring and he will have three years to play two following the 2012 football season.
