AMERICAN STATESMAN: Round Rock football teams seeking answers as summer workouts kick off

How good can Jake Chambers and the Stony Point linebacking corps become?

Freshmen just don’t make varsity. Not at the linebacker position. Not in Class 6A. Not at Stony Point, which plays in one of the most competitive 6A districts in the state. But Chambers wasn’t like most freshmen last season, when he earned a starting spot and collected 23 tackles before injuries derailed his debut season. The 6-foot, 215-pound sophomore has good size, quick feet and and an instinctive feel for the game. What will he be like after a full offseason in a varsity weight program, and how will he fit in with a loaded linebacking corps that also includes junior Emmanuel Obinna and senior Kylin Woodley? Fans can get an early answer Aug. 22 in a scrimmage against Pflugerville.
