Sherman gets Callisburg quarterback as a transfer

All-state quarterback Thor Long is transferring from Callisburg to Sherman. The Bearcats will begin the Gary Joe Kinne era with a strong crop of signal callers.

Long will join returning starter Madison Carter and up and coming passer Tyler Liss in what should make for an interesting competition in the fall.

Long lit up the Callisburg skies last year as a sophomore. He threw for over 3000 yards and 30 touchdown passes. That earned him a spot on the all-state team and sparked a deep Callisburg playoff run.

According to, Long is one of the top 20 quarterback recruits in the state of Texas. He will be a junior in 2009-10.
