Martin HS OL Steven Baggett (Arlington, TX) verbally committed to Boise State over the summer and anchored one of the top O-lines in the State of Texas this season. He and his teammates finished the 2011 campaign with a 14-2 record, the best mark in school history. So, what are his thoughts on the season?

"Definitely a good season," he said. "We made it to the fourth round and lost to Southlake Carroll. That was the best season in school history, but it obviously would've been better to win a championship."

"Our football team has continued to get better with each season," he said. "It felt good to take it one step further this year," he added.

"I believe I had a pretty good season," he stated. "I faced a lot of good competition out there. I played to the best of my ability and tried to help the team come out with a win in each game."

Offensive Coordinator Brent Pease had an in-home visit with Baggett (6'3, 250) just a couple weeks ago.

"Coach Pease was here about two weeks ago," he said. "It was good. It was nice for him to meet my family and for my family to meet him."

"Coach Pease and Coach Strausser are just real genuine and cool to be around," said Baggett. "They're nice people, easy to talk to, and just overall good people."

"I'm 100% committed."

Looking back, the City of Boise and the "friendly environment" played a big role in Baggett's decision to become a Bronco.

"It was just the city and the people are so nice and friendly," he said. "I met a lot of players from Texas and from all over the place. They carry themselves like a big family and I enjoyed being around all of them."

And the move to the Big East?

"I was definitely excited about that," he said. "SMU is pretty much right next to my house. It'll be great to come home and see family and all of that. It makes it that much better knowing you can come home more than once."

Baggett's HS career may be over, but he says he'll continue to go to the gym and stay in-shape.

"I'll keep working out at the school and gym," he said. "I definitely want to stay in-shape," he added.

The future Bronco says he uses his athletic ability to his advantage.

"I'd say I'm more athletic than some of the other guys," he said. "I might not be as big, but I play athletically and always give 100%."
