add another item to the pile as to why this was a bad idea
Detroit News 2011 High School Dream Team
Braden, Ross, MO, Godin, Drake, TRich
Coach of Year: Thomas Wilcher, Cass Tech
And Kenny Allen ,the punter, is a preferred walk-on.
Probably because he's a WR, or split end.
I agree, calling him a receiver or wide receiver would have been more clear, or even saying split end instead of just end. But it's not that uncommon of nomenclature either.
cotter was most definitely a wide out. he also benefited from having a very solid qb throwing him the ball. I think the decision to include him on this list is based on stats alone
Back in the old days, that's what they were called. But regardless, the Detroit News has been calling tight ends and wide receivers "ends" on the Dream Team for as long as I can remember.
He seemed to have a Wisconsin early offer and Michigan was looking at him before Hoke got here. I checked Rivals and he is 3 stars but with no offers. He is 6'4 and almost 300 pounds.
I have an idea of what has gone on with Latta, but I'd rather not share it. However, he didn't go to camps this summer because of injury, and that may have stalled his recruitment.
Latta does have nice size, but his film isn't all that impressive. I thought the Wisconsin offer was fishy, and it seems like the offer was pulled or never existed in the first place. He doesn't look like a high FBS prospect to me. He looks like a MAC kid.
Interesting, no Funchess or RJS (or Burbridge).
These awards are generally for who had the best season, not who the best player is. I'm not sure what Burbridge's stats were, but I'm guessing there were other guys in the state who had better stats this year.
It's probably because these kind of things are based on high school stats instead of recruiting rankings/upside at the next level.
Congrats to your brother, OP.
Kind of an awkward picture of Cooper Rush, with the piece of grass stuck to the side of his face. You'd think they would have let him know to brush it off or at least photoshoped it out.
I like the kid from De La Salle's goofy senior picture. So great.
Looks like they shorted Drake Johnson 1,000 yards.
They shorted him 5,000 yards ... He runs so damn fast and for so many yards that they quit keeping track at 1,800 yards in the 3rd game
"Mario is the most dominant defensive tackle we've ever had," coach John Herrington said.
FHH is one of the best HSFB programs in Michigan, and has been for a long time. Herrington is a legend, so that's damn impressive. This kid is going to be great.
I don't remember that many lineman-sized prospects coming out of FHH. Most of them seem to be running backs, receivers, and defensive backs.
and I don't remember any either, but for fuck's sake Magnus
It's high praise from a legendary coach and look on the bright side and don't think so critically on every little thing and the kid is going to be great end of story goddamn you.
lol I agree that it's high praise. I'm just sayin'.
No sparty committs. A handful of amazing UM committs.
And quite a few are heading out of state.
