HOUSTON – Ronald Nunnery Jr. stood at the base of the large white painted "X" in the word Texans.

The Shadow Creek senior was back there just in case. Just like former Auburn player Chris Davis was in 2013 in the 78th Iron Bowl against Alabama.

Nunnery Jr. was awaiting San Antonio Wagner kicker Omar Guevara to put toe-to-ball. As the 36-yard attempt went end-over-end towards the end zone, Nunnery Jr., just like Davis did on November 30, 2013, caught it and took off.

"I had a feeling that he was going to miss it," Nunnery Jr. said.As the University of Houston verbal commit cut to his left and came out of the end zone the blocks developed in front of him.

First it was Sharks' linebacker Darrion Brown and defensive back Trey Palmer that laid the first clearing block of Wagner offensive lineman Jaylon Blackburn that really sprung Nunnery Jr. free.

Once past there, it was a footrace down the sideline.

"We were going for the tie and hopefully go into overtime and they made a big play," Wagner coach Charles Bruce told the Houston Chronicle. "Credit to them."

Standing on the sidelines watching as this play developed was Shadow Creek senior quarterback Jamarian George.

"Hey man it's not his first time," George said with a big smile and laugh. "He's the GOAT for that one."

As Nunnery Jr. crossed midfield, running in front of a roaring, rally-towel waving Shadow Creek fanbase and his teammates and coaches it became more real he could do it.

"I was sure hoping he was going to get there," Shadow Creek coach Brad Butler said.

HOUSTON – Trayveon Williams tucks the football into his arm, bursts from a still stance and is being pulled back by his trainer down the track.

Williams then moves over to a turf area where he works on footwork, shuffling his feet in between the yellow rungs on the ladder on the ground, while his trainer again pulls at the football.

It's all part of the plan to achieve a dream.

The former C.E. King and Texas A&M star running back is less than a month away from his childhood dream coming true and is continuing his work to get better every day counting down to the 2019 NFL Draft.

"It's crazy because growing up you have this dream and fantasy of doing this. Mine was saying I wanted to play in the NFL," Williams, who's Pro Day at Texas A&M is on March 26, said. "Going throughout college and having a pretty successful college career and making the decision is just mind-blowing that less than a month away my dream is about to come true."

Williams is coming off a solid showing at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis earlier this month.

The Aggie running back posted a 4.51 40-yard dash, 33-inch vertical, 121-inch broad jump, 19 reps on the 225-pound bench press and a 7.44-second 3-cone drill and 4.44-second 20-yard shuttle.

But the physical portion wasn't the part that took the most out of Williams.

"It was a lot of ups and downs," Williams said about the combine. "It was extremely fun. Believe it or not it was more mentally fatiguing than physically. It was a lot of stuff we had to do mentally but physically when you've been doing it your whole life it wasn't bad.
