Video of the Day: Robert Handy – TE – Freehold, New Jersey

Howell High School WR/DB Robert Handy puts in work.  I will skip all the obvious puns that can be used with his last name and tell you that Handy presents a matchup problem for defenders.  At 6’2″ 200 lbs,  he’s bigger than most cornerbacks lining up in front of him and bigger than most high school safeties for that matter.  Handy also has good speed for his size (4.61) in the forty and good ball skills. Watch him on film make catches over defenders and attack the ball in the air.  Handy is also an honor student who looks to have a great football I.Q.  Time and again you will see him read the coverages,  sit in the zones and present himself to the quarterback.  If you are a lover of offensive football then Handy is a joy to watch.  Check out Robert Handy’s highlight video.

8-07: Video of the Day: Robbie Zauck – DL – Oceanview, New Jersey

Robbie Zauck is a menace…. on the football field that is. The 2010 defensive line prospect patrols the defensive front and busts into the backfield like the Kool Aid man.
