Absolutely loved reading this! Thanks!
Thanks for posting! Do yourself a favor and read this if you haven't.. Amazing kid
thank you, that made my day.
IF IT FEELS GOOD,YOU AIN'T DOING IT RIGHT!
Sidenote: No offers, South Alabama, North Alabama, etc. What are you doing???
Hope he becomes a STAR for my UWA Tigers!!!!!1
^^^^This, but something tells me he's going to eventually be a DII All American at West Alabama.
Nothing but respect for this kid. Great story.
I'm tempted to light up the South Alabama recruiting coordinator and ask him WTF they are doing down there. There is no reason a kid lighting up the field like that shouldn't have some sort of offers out there.
With his situation, prep school might be a good idea to get the additional year of development to get some better offers.
This is the real reason that universities and colleges started offering scholarships for athletics. It seems like he has made the most of what he's been given so far. I wish I had a scholarship to give him.
Just when my my faith in America's youth was fading, along comes a young man that restores it!
Thanks for post. Wonderful young man.
Worth the time to read.
Wow, what an inspiring story, wish the absolute best for that kid.
I'm an Oak Grove graduate, 31 years ago, and I have kept up with Oak Grove football ever since I was a child. Oak Grove has had many bigger and faster running backs, but I have never seen one with the heart that this kid has. He runs like he weighs 40 lbs heavier than he is. He has a low center of gravity and is very hard to tackle. If he had perhaps 3-4 more inches in heighth or was 2/10 of a second faster in the 40, everyone in the country would want him. I think this kid will make it in whatever he does. He makes excellent grades and has a great attitude and from where he comes from that is a small miracle. He loves Bama and would have loved to see him in crimson,however that won't happen. RTR!
