Glass is in session at Ridgewood

Ridgewood's Glass Wilson
Ridgewood’s Glass Wilson

Add Ridgewood’s Glass Wilson to the list of young men that put the student back into student-athelete. The two-way (and two-sport) standout member of the Rams’ program should be on the short-list for any coach that needs a 5-foor-10, 174-pound running back or perhaps linebacker; or a guard that can handle the ball and score. We also doubt there are many coaches that would turn away a young man that possesses a near-4.0 G.P.A. and has Ivy League interest starting to gain steam. The one school however that has reciprocated interest in the form of an offer has been from the local guys over at the University of South Florida. Although the Rams’ have managed just five wins the last two seasons, Wilson (while playing RB, LB, and even some QB) has put up an average of 1,386-yards (2,772 in-total) and 22 touchdowns on offense while averaging 58.5 tackles. On the hard-court, he has averaged 12.5 points per game. On Sunday, Wilson’s footwork in the open field versus linebackers and ability to show body control was particularly impressive. Should be exciting observing this young man’s spring and summer progress.
