Addison was a very impressive find by these coaches. So far he reminds me of Jordon Dizon as a freshman - a little out of control but always around the ball.
Yep definitely a surprise. Big and athletic, and at ILB no less
I'm not surprised, I picked up on him at LOI time (he noted, straining a shoulder to pat himself on the back) you can look it up! . He was easy to spot among the resumes of recruits: Any kid who could go out and play FB for the first time as a junior in HS, then make All-league as a Sr., has something going for him and great potential.
As Yogi would say: "He's got his future ahead of him!"
This is encouraging, not just because we have a player, but because it show MMac has an eye for talent and is willing to look where other's aren't to find it. The one redeeming quality of our previous staff was their scouting ability. They didn't always land that talent. Maybe this staff is above average in that category too.
Been on this kid since showing up on our radar. One of my new favorite BUFFS. At a position of need for us no less.
This kid has a bright future ahead of him and I personally can not wait to see him progress.
He looked pretty good to me in the Spring game....
He won't be playing inside when Daigh is back.
Had a nice open-field tackle of P Rich on a Kickoff return. The play that almost gave me a heart attack.
I agree that you picked a winner, but I'm afraid your premise (and the bio) are not quite accurate. He only played two years of VARSITY football. He played football from the age of 6 (an 11 year starter) and a ton of AAU basketball. He also ran varsity track and was part of a recordsetting 4x100 relay team. Al in all, a heck of an athlete and a lot of fun to watch in any sport!
I first noticed him on Tony Jones' run in which Gillam missed his assignment and got sucked inside. Coach Mac immediately went over to him and coached him up, (you could Mac telling him he went to the wrong gap....and would have stuck Jones in the hole instead it was bounced for 6).
After that he was all over the field and I want to say recovered Canty's fumble on the jailbreak screen. Kid is gonna be a stud.
I thot he was a reach, but I hope he proves me wrong. We need a LB that plays fast and gets to the ball.
The photo of him on the front page sort of begs the question: is he big enough? He looks to be about 200 pounds.
For a freshman yes he is big enough
04, he is undersized right now. He will be playing light this season most likely, but he is too good to keep sidelined.
Sounds exciting. Will definitely keep my eye on him.
I was next to the LBs in practice one day, he's a little thin but he's big enough. He's listed as heavy or heavier then:
