’25 versatile athlete looking to be a regular for his Eagles in ’23
This is a kid a tad undersized for where he is being slotted but it isn’t the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog, as is often said. Cook is 5’6,” 170-pounder who can play RB or FB on offense and figures to plug in at OLB for the defense this coming season.HB Lyon, KPGFootball Scouting Division
There was a famous singer once called “Singing” Sammy Cooke. He has been dead for years, shot by a hotel owner in Los Angeles if memory serves, but remains one of the most influential artist of his genre of all time.
You will notice the player we are featuring today is named Sammy Cook. The surname lacks an “e” from being spot-on, identical.
The late singer had a big hit with a song first released as a “B” side to another big hit. This song was written by Mr. Cooke in 1962 and release in May of that year under the title, “Bring it on home to me.”
Our Sammy Cooke has a message for the Eagles coaching staff similar to the famous song. “If you ever change your mind/About leaving, leaving me behind…” Translation: Sammy Cook would like Coach Moeller to bring on home to him some increased, Friday-night run.
Cook believes himself ready for the increased responsibility. Cook has impressed on the camp/combine circuit, so far, this summer. Eagle fans expect big things from the rising junior.
Cook plays RB and FB on offense and OLB on defense. We aren’t sure whether he will principally toil on offense or defense but not too many players go both ways at Ohio County’s level of competition.
Cook is a ’25 guy, and as we have before reported, there are a plethora of fine ’25’s dotting rosters around the commonwealth. He is 5’6,” and tips the scales around 170-pounds.
Cook is pretty muscled up as the pictures included with this article attest. It would help this prospect if he would hit a spurt and add some height and length. As for his thickness, strength, and explosion, those are reportedly right on target.
Coach Moeller and his Eagles need all hands on deck to improve on its 3-8 mark in ’22. The program is making strides. Bringing along its young talent will only hasten that progress.
One might say the Eagles need to “…Bring (its best football), Bring it on home to (us). Yeah (yeah), yeah (yeah).”
