Seven things we have learned since January 1, 2014
Largo’s Jonathan Crawford is better than advertised. The 2015 ATH can play several different positions on the field and be successful at any of them.
Scott Patchan, Freedom 2015 DE may have better leadership qualities that athletic ability. Very motivational and comes across a team player.
Currently, Pinellas County has nearly 30 high level prospects in the classes of 2015-2017. Far more than expected during the fall of 2013.
3 of the top 6 prospects in Pinellas County played on 3 of the worst teams (record) in Pinellas County last season.
Polk County is so deep at RB. Start with these guys:
Wilbur Cooper, Auburndale
Ty’Reese Cruz, Bartow
Ryan Fulse, Fort Meade
Jaylyn McKinney, Frostproof
D’Angelo Gaines, Frostproof
Thomas Boles, Lake Gibson
Earnest Hamilton, Lake Wales
Justin Henderson, Lake Wales
Ra’don Dwight, Lakeland
TJ Simmons, Lakeland Christian
Tyler King, Fort Meade
Keland White, Winter Haven
Plant, Armwood and Tampa Bay Tech are stacked again. So if Coach Weiner, Callahan or Roberts says they don’t have as much talent as last year, look at them sideways. They have a bunch of it. Outside of the popular names, check out: Reeder Frantzen, Plant; Marchelo Judge, Tampa Bay Tech and Kaylaun Edwards, Armwood.
Jaylen Pickett, Zephyrhills; Mark Hutchinson, Wiregrass and James Pensyl, Land O’Lakes are not just some of the best prospects in Pasco, but our coverage area. Pickett can play multiple positions. Pensyl has the height and arm strength while Hutchinson should pop this spring!
