LPI: Who on your team has what it takes to play college ball, but are currently being under recruited?


Josh Turner – Josh played saftey for us this year. I believe he can play in the next level because of his will to win. This kid believes he will never lose to anyone and I think that is an amazing attitude for the next level. Josh is an amazing athlete that can make offensive coordinators think about throwing deep balls.

Matt Rich – Matt played center for us this year. Matt has what it takes to play in the next level. The kid is tough, he played through two injures and still played like he had no injury. Also a really competitive kid when it comes to playing football. He plays extremely hard and is one of the hardest workers on the team.

Seamus Mellican – Seamus played defensive end for us this year. Seamus has what it takes to play in the next level because his play making ability is amazing and a really smart kid. Seamus will do his part in order for the team to win. He will bring effort and toughness to any college that offers him.
