Rams return to Ocoee High School

The Colorado State Rams are once again mining Central Florida in an attempt to bring talent to Fort Collins. Last season the Rams found Nordly Capi at Ocoee High School. This season another athlete is on their radar in the person of Trenier Orr.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound Orr runs a 4.5 40-yard dash, reports a 225-pound bench press and a 350-pound squat. He said he holds a 3.0 grade point average and is taking prep courses for his college entrance exams.

Last season Orr played some wide receiver and safety for Ocoee High School and this season will be the squad's quarterback as well as starting corner. His statistics from last year look like those of a utility player as well. Orr caught 13 passes for 194 yards and two scores. He also managed 39 tackles defensiely, four sacks, one interception, one fumble recovery and one blocked punt. He also returned three kickoffs for 64 yards.

His skills have earned him contact from Delaware, Colorado State and Central Florida during his Junior year. This weekend Orr will be in the Tampa area to take part in an Under Armor Camp for Junior prospects.

"Most people who see my highlight tape say I am a hard hitter and have an eye for the ball," he said. "I have been invited to the Under Armor camp, so I am going next weekend. I'll be playing cornerback because Coach Cox, said I have good instincts for the ball and I will be one of the top cornerbacks and should be on the 150 watchlist."

Orr, who said he hopes to major in Business, said he has seen a pair of coaches at Ocoee High School who are vying for his services - Colorado State and Delaware. Colorado State Offensive Coordinator Pat Meyer has returned to Ocoee after recruiting Nordly Capi to Fort Collins last year.

"He (Meyer) came to our school," Orr said. "I talked to him and he seemed like a pretty cool guy. Nordly Capi videotaped his trip there and it was nice. I saw the facility where they play football at and I thought it was pretty nice. He said he likes it a lot."

Orr added that the coaches from Delaware also got tape from his coach and has been in contact.

"I'm looking for a great football program and academics," Orr said. "Having a great record is one of them, but I am looking for a team and a coach I can relate to while I am playing football for them."
