GEORGETOWN (KXAN) -- - Despite putting up over 4,000 yards of offense and 55 touchdowns, Jake Hubenak, named first team All-State in class 4A, doesn't have a place to play.
"It's very stressful because I just think recruiting's kinda crazy the way it works out," Hubenak said. "I think it puts a chip on my shoulder just knowing the kind of player I am, and just kinda wanna prove everybody wrong."
It wasn't always this way for Hubenak, who was a highly touted recruit at the start of his junior year before a knee injury ended his season after four games.
"Everything started to pick up," Hubenak said. "Like, I thought, this is gonna be great. And then, of course, I got hurt, so then everything just drops off. Like, don't hear from anybody. When you're hurt, people always have questions: Will he come back the same way or anything? Even I had the same questions before this season. Will I be as good as I was last year? Hopefully I answered those questions this year."
Despite leading Georgetown to a 15-0 record, Hubenak didn't start to get attention from colleges again until after the Eagles loss to Denton Guyer in the state title game.
"It's just like a rollercoaster ride," Hubenak said. "It's crazy. But ever since the state championship game, I've had calls from junior colleges, DIII, to DI, so I'm just kinda trying to explore my options with DI right now cause I think that's the caliber player I am."
Now that interest from schools like Arkansas State, with new head coach Bryan Harsin, and Texas Tech has picked up, Hubenak is hoping he gets a chance to prove all the schools that passed on him wrong.
"All I need to know is how good of a player I am, and I don't really care what other people think cause I'll go prove it to them," Hubenak said.
"There's a bunch of people that said he couldn't come back and have the kind of senior year he had after getting hurt as a junior," Georgetown coach Jason Dean said. "Jake's a great competitor, great kid. He's gonna do well in whatever college environment somebody gives him a chance in. He's just gotta have a chance."
And that's all he's asking for.
