Is Sergio Kindle ready to play? I don't know, but I'm sure ready to watch him. - Video Highlights

Former Woodrow Wilson (Dallas, TX) High School RB/LB Sergio Kindle (6'4", 225 pounds) is the only player in Texas to earn all-state honors as both a defensive and offensive player. He'll play defense at the University of Texas, but in high school he was a difference maker on offense, leading his "perennial cellar-dweller" team to four straight playoff appearances. In his senior year he rushed for 2,298 yards (10.5 ypc) with 40 TDs and recorded 157 tackles with 36 TFL and one touchdown at linebacker.
He was named a first team All-American by EA Sports, USA Today and Parade Magazine and was awarded the Parade AFL Ironman award as the best two-way player in the nation. He was named the 4A Defensive Player of the Year by the Associated Press and the Texas Sports Writers Association, and has way too many state and local honors to be kept on one trophy shelf, much less for me to mention here.

Kindle was recruited by just about every major football program in the country, but he seemed to always know where he wanted to be.
"I didn't want to leave the state, and everybody in the country knows that if you're going to stay close to home, you pick the best school and that's Texas no doubt about it. I know that if our recruiting class sticks together, we're really going to have something special."
