HOUSTON – Nate Dyman is having fun.
The senior linebacker in his first season at Second Baptist School has quickly become a key cog in the defensive unit that has allowed just 60 points all year, including three shutouts.
"It's been great, I started off and I didn't really know anybody," Dyman, who has an offer from Air Force, said. "I came in at the end of the summer and everybody's just been really accepting of me. So, I started off well and it's been up from there. A little bit shaky at the start of the year, learning all the plays and figuring out how we do it over here. But I think I figured it out and it's paying off on the field."
Heading into last week, during which the seniors were honored at halftime, Dyman had been named the linebacker of the week already five times this year.
"He's done a great job this year," Second Baptist School coach Terry Pirtle said. "Nate's been a refreshing addition to our team this year. He just loves the game, is passionate about it, he wants to be perfect every day and practice hard every day."
That love and passion for the game comes through.
Dyman has a nose for the football, hits hard and is a force on the field. Through it all, Dyman makes sure to have fun.
"I'm having a blast," Dyman said. "You see me dancing around and everything. That's the only way I know how to play football. You just have to have fun with it because you only get a certain number of snaps and you never know which one will be your last."
The Second Baptist School enters this week seeking its first perfect regular season since 1999 – which was the last time the program won a state title.
"It's been amazing, I haven't really had success like this yet," Dyman said. "I'm enjoying it right there with them."
