Latwan Anderson Says: “I Am the Best Until Proven Otherwise”

Ohio Glenville High School safety Latwan Anderson is good and he’s not afraid to let you know.  The speedster from Ted Ginn’s High School has gone on a mission this summer to prove the words in the headline of this story.

Some people go on fact finding missions,  some people go on award tours,  Anderson has been on a “prove it to you” expedition.   The play making safety is brash and even cocky as some would describe but you have to say that this summer he has backed it up.  The cherry on Anderson’s sundae came last week at the ESPN Gridiron Kings event at Disney’s Wide World of Sports.  With a motherlode of top athletes and recruits competing at the event,  Anderson shined from his safety position.  Anderson used his track speed and instincts to nab 6 Int’s during the tournament (one for a 98 yard touchdown) and walked away with defensive MVP honors.  If you didn’t know him when the summer began,  you know who he is now.

Jeff Luc Impressive at USF Sling and Shoot 7-on-7 Tournament

By now you should know that Jeff Luc is a beast on the football field. There is much evidence that he will hit you if you are carrying the football around and when he hits you it’s with serious intent. You already know that he hunts down quarterbacks and makes them scream out like a chick in a horror flick. You are well aware that he will dig a running back’s feet out of the ground and lay him on his back like a Miami Beach tourist trying to get a sun tan. However, not many people expect a 6’1″ 240 lb. hulk of a teenager to get out and run around in coverage at a 7-on-7 tournament.
