ENSWORTH HEAD COACH RICKY BOWERS  "Cory was definitely a big-play maker for our team. He has really good speed and uncommon natural skills for the receiving position. His ratio of touchdowns to catches this season has to be one of the highest in the state.

"Cory is as good as any receiver that I've had. He's also very coachable, a hard worker who wants to learn all he can.

"You are talking about a very explosive player. Cory is one of those guys that can play above the rim on the basketball court. He has good hands and has the size to go in traffic and make the catch."
