Sunday morning,  video of a 1-on-1 rep at Nebraska’s Friday Night Lights between a defensive back and a wide receiver sent football twitter into a tizzy.

We’ve all heard the term diamond in the rough.  Is it overused?  Perhaps but I feel it is appropriate in this case.  West Covina is hardly anyone’s powerhouse in Southern California football.  Over the last five seasons,  they have managed just two above .500 and last year they were a mere 1-9.  However,  as is this case all across the nation,  not so hot programs will have undiscovered talent.  Victor Flores may be one of those talents.
