10/30/09: Video of the Day: Trevius Folston – QB – Florida Air Academy (Florida)

Another day,  another underrated Gridiron Stud.  Florida Air Academy does not come up on most people’s radar.  It’s not St. Thomas Aquinas,  it’s not Elder, it’s not Concord DeLaSalle and it’s not John Curtis but it’s perfectly capable of turning out  a future college football star.   They may have one here in quarterback Trevius Folston.  Folston stands out and stands tall…  all 6’7″ inches of him.  Watch him take a smooth drop back and deliver the ball with technique and precision.  Typically,  teenagers with this kind of frame come off as physically awkward.  Folston does not.  The 2010 prospect carries his 210 lbs with power and command.   He is oozing with potential and ready to command the future of a college football program.  Folston does not appear in the Rivals rankings so he’s under the radar but he has the potential to be a bullseye for a college football team in search of a future signal caller.  Be the judge yourself and check out Trevius Folston’s highlight video, click here.

10/29/09: Video of the Day: Dylan Admire – OL – Blue Valley West H.S. (Kansas)

Offensive linemen rarely get love but this one will.  As a coach,  it’s a pleasure to see a player execute with great technique and that’ s just what Dylan Admire does for Blue Valley West High School in Overland, Kansas.  Like State Farm,  Admire is a rock providing insurance for his backfield mates.  Watch him serve up pancakes like a short order cook and shuffle his feet to keep hard charing defensive ends away from his signal caller.  You can tell that he’s been coached up and he looks like he’s coachable.  Admire made the rounds at the camps during the offseaason and left some good impressions and he will leave you with a good impression when you watch this video.  This 2011 graduate to be will be a top prospect next season.  View Dylan Admire’s highlight video, click here.

10/28/09: Video of the Day: Adrian Riley – ATH – Ocoee H.S. (Florida)

Hey look what Adrian can do. There isn’t much he can’t. Mr. Riley is about as underrated as they come and that fact will jump out at you the minute you start watching the film. Within the first minute of his highlight video, Riley lines up at running back and shows you speed, strength and power. He lines up at wide receiver and shows you great hands with solid route running, then he lines up at defensive back and takes a pick to the house. You will be entertained and then you will wonder why he only lists The Citadel and Charleston Southern as teams recruiting him. I see it every day. Talented high school players being overlooked. Adrian Riley is one of them and you will agree when you watch his video. Check out Adrian Riley’s highlight video.

Rumors and Wires: Gio Bernard Headed to Notre Dame

Rumors and Wires: Week of October 26, 2009

One of the most productive backs in St. Thomas Aquinas history made an important choice on Tuesday when Gio Bernard opted for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.  Bernard was a highly recruited talent that narrowed his choices down to Florida St., Tennessee, Oregon St. Nebraska and Alabama before going with Notre Dame.  Bernard has made a career out of both tough running and tough yards.  Making this college decision was equally as tough but in the end,  Notre Dame,  he determined was here he wanted to be.  View Gio Bernard’s highlight video.

Hurricanes Land David Perry Commitment

The University of Miami landed a top recruit they were really after on Friday Night as University School (Florida) defensive end,  David Perry committed to “The U’.  Perry migrated from Jamaica to South Florida in 2008 and made an immediate impact for the Suns despite playing football for the first time.  Perry’s 6’6” 235 lb. frame and freakish athleticism posed a tough matchup for his high school counterparts.  It wasn’t long before he caught the eye of many of the top football programs in the country.  In the end it came down to Miami, Florida and LSU for Perry.  Perry chose Miami because of their classroom sizes, family type atmosphere and business program. Perry’s commitment may close out the defensive end position for the Hurricanes for the 2010 class.  The Canes had Hialeah H.S. (Florida) defensive end Corey Lemonier on their list but it’s a mystery as to what will happen there.

10/22/09: Video of the Day: Nelson Fishback QB Durham H.S. (California)

There are plenty of QB’s with eye popping numbers on the prep level in this country. With all the buzz surrounding the stats, sometimes really solid QB’s can fall through the cracks. Nelson Fishback defines solid QB. While watching his highlight video, it becomes readily apparent that Fishback has been coached up and has been camping. He is strong with his fundamentals and really makes the Durham High School offense go. Durham’s offense is not high octane with a bunch of D-I prospects running around. It looks like a bunch of kids who love football and go out with the attitude of wanting to win. Fishback leads that charge and very much presents himself as a Division-I prospect who can do big things on the next level. This Class of 2011 signal caller is drawing interest from West Coast Division-I programs and will continue to gain interest with each solid outing. View Nelson Fishback’s highlight video… click here now.
