Previously: Hello post
One of the earliest games David filmed this season took him to Centerville, Ohio, which definitely sounds like either the town where all of Norman Rockwell’s imaginary subjects lived or the setting of a show on the CW. On this night its high school hosted 2019 TE commit Erick All and his Fairfield squad, and this is where the entertainment analogies die. Even Centerville’s mascot, the Elk, sounds idyllic, but Fairfield squashed them, 49-21. The downside to running roughshod over the opponent was Fairfield’s lack of passing, particularly their lack of targets of All. He did run enough routes to get a good feel for his athleticism, but more important to both Fairfield’s outcome and our scouting purposes was his blocking in the run game. Anyone who has watched with more than passing interest this season has seen the importance of blocking when Michigan lines their tight ends up as H-backs, and this tape allows us to extrapolate and get a feel for how All might fit in that role.
