Guyer’s backup QB Moore goes back to Prosper

The once crowded quarterback derby at Guyer heading into the 2014 season is suddenly much clearer.

After the Guyer coaching staff moved last season’s backup to Texas freshman Jerrod Heard, David Haynes, to wide receiver full-time, the starting job under center was in the hands of sophomore transfer Shawn Robinson, who started as a freshman for Saginaw Chisholm Trail last season.

Prosper move-in David Moore was set to be Robinson’s backup and had a solid performance in Guyer’s spring game. Now, Moore is headed back to Prosper before his career at Guyer ever got started.

“It wasn’t really my decision,” said Moore, who started the regular-season finale for Prosper as a sophomore, going 8-for-9 for more than 200 yards and two touchdowns. “It was more for my mom and her personal reasons, she wanted to go back and I just said, ‘all right.’”

Guyer head coach John Walsh said the decision was made due to some family health concerns.

“David and his family are moving back to Prosper due to some family health issues,” Walsh said. “David worked hard during his time at Guyer, and we wish him well.”

The annual tease known as spring football comes to an end tonight, as the two-time defending Class 4A Division I state champion Guyer Wildcats will play their annual spring game at 6 p.m.

While the coaches have already done all of their evaluating over the past few weeks in spring practice and don’t really care too much for tonight’s game, it’s most for the fans, so here’s a little guide of what to watch for if you’re heading out to Guyer tonight.

5-star QB from California enrolls at Guyer

We’ve known for a few weeks Guyer was possibly getting a big-time quarterback as a move-in from California, and on Monday, Kevin Dillman started school at Guyer after moving from La Mirada, Calif.

The guy has a really interesting story. He’s from Sweden and played on the Sweden national team as a 13-year-old with 18- and 19-year-olds, moved to California and became one of the top prospects in the country. Now, he’s moved to Guyer zone and enrolled at Guyer.

“It’s his first day of school,” Guyer head coach John Walsh said. “There’s a kid by the name of Kevin Dillman here, and that’s all I know. I can confirm he is enrolled at Guyer High School right now.”

Dillman has offers from just about everyone you could imagine — 16 in all — including schools like UCLA, Clemson and national champion Florida State. He’s 6-4, 220 pounds and will be a senior next season. If you watch his highlight videos, you see his prowess throwing the ball as well as his athleticism, including several kickoff return touchdowns. He missed much of his junior season at La Mirada due to an achilles injury.

Dillman could replace Jerrod Heard, who is set to sign with Texas on Wednesday after winning back-to-back Class 4A Division I state titles. Heard was a three-year starter at Guyer after J.W. Walsh started for three years before heading to Oklahoma State.

According to 247sports.com, he’s a 5-star recruit and is nationally the second-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the Class of 2015, one spot ahead of Allen star Kyler Murray.

Walsh said they will file his paperwork with the UIL and expect to have his move-in approved in the next few weeks.
