Recruiting Spotlight: Joseph Scelfo

20 Mar

For most college football programs offensive line is their top priority. For one school this won’t be a problem. Whoever signs North Oconee High School’s Joseph Scelfo will get a solid lineman who can play both center and guard. This 6`2 275 pound guard has both power and excellent technique. But more importantly he has great leadership skills and superb academic success (3.43 GPA).

Check him out. Number 66

The cornerstone of any successful team requires a solid group of offensive linemen. This collective group of men is responsible for the success or failure of each offensive play.

He began his high school career as a starting sophomore and never looked back. Scelfo is a leader on the Titans offensive unit. Registering a career high 11 pancakes in a game, Joseph Scelfo is the truth.

As a result of his exceptional play he has been the recipient of All region and All Area awards. His play hasn’t gone unnoticed, schools including UAB, Marshall, Ole Miss, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Miami, UL Monroe, MTSU, Furman, Wofford, Syracuse, Samford, UCLA, South Carolina, and Virginia Tech has begun sending him mail.

His sports heroes include Todd Mclure, Tony Gonzalez, Jeff Saturday, Walter Jones, and Chris Scelfo. His play reminds me of linemen like Walter Jones, Jon Runyan, and Larry Allen. This kid has pure talent and an enormous upside. A great addition to whatever university he decides to attend.

Expected Graduation Year: 2012

Recruiting Spotlight: Jacob Williams

25 Feb

The great Vince Lombardi once said, “The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.” Well Jacob Williams doesn’t have to worry about that. This 5`8, 155 pound football player is a pure explosive playmaker. He reminds me of players like DeSean Jackson, Percy Harvin, Nnamdi Asomugha, and one of his sports heroes Champ Bailey with his great ball skills and speed.

Williams plays cornerback on the defensive side of the ball and wide receiver in the team’s pistol offense. He also handles the punt and kick return duties for St. Francis. In the 40 yard dash he runs a 4.65. Check out this exceptional player for yourself. Jersey Number: #10

He has received several honors for his play and leadership. He has 3 MVP awards, an Inspirational Player award, and Defensive Back award. Not only is he a great football player, he is a great student as well. Williams has a 3.2 GPA. These accolades haven’t gone unnoticed. Schools like Alberta, Bishop’s, Mount Allison, Waterloo, British Columbia, STFX, York, Western, Toronto, Wilfred Laurier, and Windsor has all shown interest in Williams.

Virginia: The London Effect

28 Dec

After an expected horrible year, University of Virginia head coach Mike London is having great success this offseason. The first year head coach knew coming into the UVA job that the task of rebuilding the program would be a long, slow process. Thus, one of his key goals was to recruit the state of Virginia harder than before.

Virginia is known for its outstanding athletes in the “757” region of the state. London knew if his program was to have any success he would need to push for this area. Well, so far this offseason he has secured 13 of the state’s top 25 athletes. He has commitments from top CB Demetrious Nicholson, QB David Watford, and LB Da’Quan Romero.

London one of my coaching idols, is off to a good start recruiting and will be a thorn in the side of Virginia Tech recruiting prowess in the state of Virginia.

Weekend College Football Preview

12 Nov

This week in college football has been a rocky road. And at the completion of the week we will find ourselves having to watch a bunch of unappealing games. No I won’t consider the Auburn game as one of this weeks must anticipated games. Mr. Newton on the other hand will… However, there is a game in the SEC this week that intrigue me a little bit. The Tennessee vs. Ole Miss game is underrated but it would be great. Hahaha…that was a joke however, I will allow you to see the preview. Other games that are really important at least slightly are the Virginia Tech vs. North Carolina, Oklahoma State vs. Texas, Penn State vs. Ohio State (game of the week), TCU vs. San Diego State, Oregon vs. California games.

College Football Preview

4 Nov

Let’s get prepared for this weekend’s college football games. We are indeed in store for some great games that will shake up the BCS. The two games that interest me are the Alabama vs. LSU game and the TCU vs. Utah game. The Utah, TCU game isn’t going to get much hype in the broad sports culture, due to its commercial appeal. However, this game will likely determine at least one team that will compete in the BCS Championship game. Of course there is a group of individuals that disagree with me. My argument is simple look at the remaining schedules of each team and both of their positions are it relates to the polls. It would be hard to argue that they won’t be in the Championship game.

Another possible historical game this weekend is the Northwestern vs. Penn State. Head coach Joe Paterno is going for his 400 th victory.
