Phillips struggled through the early years of high school before landing at Lone Star in January 2016 as a junior.

Even at his new school, he fought through academic and behavior problems.

However, the Lone Star staff pushed the student-athlete because they knew he wanted to play college football and earn a degree.

At the signing ceremony, it was obvious that the Lone Star coaches felt a great deal of pride due to Phillips' success.
