Football guys in regional tarck

Tonight had a chance to Wynford Royals's Teven Eatmon throw the discus at the D3 regional track meet. Saw him last summer and really liked him. He had and has no idea how much potential he has as college football player. Nor did his coach want to talk about him. At 6'6 and 280, he is imposing. A natural bender with very good feet. Excellent attitude and character. Grades improving. After OSU, MICH, MICH ST, and PURDUE, among others stopped to him, his coach is starting to believe. Also talked to another prospect from Spencerville. Excellent wrestler - state competitor none the less. Strong, with good leverage, and really tough. His coach really has a hard time getting video out. Both of these players need summer camps to convince recruiters of their substance. Another local prospect who is a 50 foot SP and 150 discus thrower did not go out for track, because he wanted to concentrate on football and basketball. What's up with that? College coaches want to see you compete, especially when you can make a difference.

Blogging is not one of my strengths , because of time. But I have promised myself to get after it.
