Nice piece by Laken Litman on the high school rivalry between Wimbush's high school, St. Peter's Prep, and Paramus Catholic. Litman recounts a key 63-yard touchdown run by Wimbush, in which he checks the play at the line of scrimmage to run away from Gary.
“Everybody was going crazy after that,” St. Peter’s Prep head coach Rich Hansen says. “When he came off to the sideline, I said, ‘Brandon why’d you check the play?’ And he went through the reasons why and I said, ‘Great job, great job.’ But then [wide receiver] Corey Caddle is laughing and he goes, ‘Coach, he checked the play because he’s afraid to run at Rashan.’ And I said, well that’s a good enough reason for me, I get it.”
I think the MGoCommune is somewhat underestimating Wimbush's ability to make plays with his feet—he's a legit dual threat, even with the 49% completion percentage. Should be a great game!
