Super Sophomore Quandre Diggs

Diggs is soph to watch

Angleton is home to one of the top 2011 prospects in the state of Texas. Jack-of-all-trades Quandre Diggs has been a staple of the Angleton football team since starting every game as a freshman at quarterback and safety. In 2008, the younger brother of former Texas Longhorns and current San Diego Charger Quentin Jammer, led the Wildcats to a 9-4 season a regional semifinal berth.

Quandre Diggs defines the term jack-of-all-trades. As a freshman, the 5-9, 193-pounder could be seen lining up at quarterback, running back, left safety and in the return game for the Angleton Wildcats sometimes logging as many as 90 snaps per game total. After receiving 23-4A second team all-district at safety, the sky was the limit heading into 2008.

Diggs delivered as a sophomore leading Angleton to the third round of the playoffs before losing to Beaumont Central 35-34 in the closing seconds on a two point conversion. The loss ended a terrific sophomore campaign for Diggs that included some big time performances.

Diggs finished the season with 1,428 yards rushing and 25 touchdowns on only 138 carries, threw for 440 yards and two scores and caught a pair of passes for 121 yards and a TD as well as returning kicks and making many a big hit from his safety spot.

Diggs' top performance of the season came in the first round of the playoffs against Richmond Foster. Diggs rushed for 320 yards and five touchdowns on 22 carries and completed four of five passes for 31 yards in the Wildcats 55-51 win.
