    Gray is averaging over 7 tackles a game and has 7 sacks for the 10-1 Silver Creek squad. Reports are that he dominated Joey O'Connor when Silver Creek played Windsor. (Scout's Brian Howell was at the game and came away thinking O'Connor was overrated.)

    Trace's dad, Lamarr, was a 3-year letterman and member of our 1990 national champion team.

    Don't be surprised if Trace ends up at CU as a PWO.

    No problems with this. Could see this kid developing into a Jack LB if he has any sort of pass rush ability.

    Could be a good PWO. Gray and Zech Green would be quality PWO for the program.

    Looks to be as good an athlete and as highly sought after as some of the guys that Hawkins was giving schollies to in his later years.

    This is the kind of guy who you want as a walk-on. Good enough athlete to push your starters on the scout teams, could develop into a quality special teams guy, and if he steps up may become a solid depth guy. Hope he comes to CU.

    Good walk-on candidate. I could see the other OLB/DE walk-on frosh Alec Parker making an impact down the road
