at the Mobile Elite Action Combine camp in the summer of 2009 - right before Yeldon's sophomore season at Daphne. Coach Vickery told Tim and I that he had a kid that was probably "the next big deal" in the Mobile area that was going to be a sophomore for him. I asked him which kid was he referring to, and he told me "look for the kid who doesn't look like he should only be 15 years old." I don't think Yeldon was being mentioned at all at this point in recruiting circles, but he was a hit at the combine.
Running backs are usually born not made. I really thought Yeldon was a defensive guy after watching his sophomore film....then he looked a little more natural as a junior before turning into Eric Dickerson as a senior. Never seen that kind of improvement from one year to the next before.
Fowler was completely under the radar due to having to sit out his senior season of football but he obviously stayed in shape.

He was a bad man at Vigor. I have missed him a ton this year.
God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
We sure have missed Fowler this season, could've used his bruising style down the stretch, especially last saturday.
Thanks for posting that, Shane. I really can't wait to get Fowler back next year.
good stuff Shane! We have definitely missed Nudie. Think he would've helped tremendously, especially in the LSU and A and M games. Hope he comes back Full Beast Mode!
Yeldon is Sick. What a player!
I vividly remember that photo gallery. When I saw the kid-I knew he would be the real deal.
Great stuff Shane. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, he got an A+++ off the look test alone. The times if you guys recall were super-inflated that day (fast track, really warm day and we had guys clocking who had not done it too much before) but comparatively speaking, Yeldon was in the top 5 or 6 in 40 time and the #1 guy in the vertical jump (either 37 or 38 inches - can't recall). Because of his size at that time, I pegged him as a future Mark Barron that would play in the secondary one day.
CJ Mosley, Nick Perry, Marvin Shinn, Darius Philon, Sammie Coates, Devaunte Sigler, and Sam Gibson were also there that day. Insane amount of talent.

Didn't Sam Gibson go to lsu? Then kicked off earlier this year? He was a late bloomer and everyone tried to get on him but he stayed true to lsu
