’28 RB already drawing raves as (perhaps) the best RB in his graduating class

How does one garner praise as the best running back in his graduating class entering the 8th-grade? Well, scoring seven (7) rushing TD’s in a solitary game doesn’t hurt! This kid has speed, frame, and innate vision making him a top candidate for the best RB in the ’28 class and someone you should look for in the backfield, at 5A WoFo, in the Fall of ’24.

There is nothing harder than evaluating middle school football talent. We are the “grand-daddies” of the coverage, having commenced as the first and only, Kentucky-wide service to attempt the effort. When we give you a heads up about a middle school player, you might take some extra notice.

We have scouts all over the commonwealth. Without these guys, we couldn’t even attempt to cover the wide expanse of football throughout Kentucky we manage (somehow) to cover.

We got a poignant phone call from one of these “guys.” “Fletch, No. 4 for Wofo MS, Chris Lucas, is the real f’n deal, brother,” our intrepid caller and scout told me over the phone. We cleaned it up a little but wanted you to get the gist, and that is Mr. Lucas being a splendid performer at his position.

Forgive the expletive, please. Our scouts can get fired up about their assignments from time to time!

Now the guy who scouted this player for us isn’t a coach at WoFo (Woodford County High or Middle) but he is a coach. This guy is on the staff of one of the area’s very best high schools both for academics and athletics, particularly football.

We did some digging on this particular prospect. It turns out he is as fantastic as advertised.

His separation speed is “off the charts.” His field vision is instinctive and innate. His frame is both enviable and unfinished.

This prospect has excellent “growth potential” to go along with instinct, speed, and explosion that are all “right now” elite. This guy will challenge for the first-team reps as soon as he reaches his high school program.

Remember from where you first heard this…
