Beau Buchanan also impressive in his command of the passing attack
There’s a freshman receiver out here looking great. Buchanan also looks the part.KPGFootball’s Centre College Scout
Today the Centre Football team gathered at the Boyle County complex to get in some 7 on 7, informal, players only work. There were many team members in town to either watch or compete, even some of the “big uglies” who have little to do in a 7s throw other than stand out in the middle of the field and watch the action from behind the offense.
Centre has as a preseason tradition this particular event which always precludes Fall camp by a few weeks. History indicates EKU used to come over for a spirited 7s battle between the two programs which got a little too spirited resulting in an injury or two which discontinued the event being anything other than intra-squad.
That aside, many of the new freshmen signed to Centre and about to begin their Colonel careers were in town and some of them competed. We heard rave reviews about a certain freshman named Chase Eary from Cincinnati’s St. Xavier High.
Eary is a 5-11, 200-pounder who looks to have greater length than his height would portend. Eary is built like a linebacker, truthfully, and was an integral part of a St. Xavier squad which won the 2020 Ohio, Division 1, State Championship.
We have linked his high school highlights below his picture. Look for the “red ink.”
From our agent we had in the area, who attended the throw, Eary wasn’t the only one who looked to shine. We were told Beau Buchanan looked fantastic on the field today.
Buchanan’s mastery of the offense was evident. Fans of KHSAA high school football certainly remember what he did as a prep star at Bowling Green Senior.
We look forward to Centre opening its season on the road at Hanover College on September 3, 2022. We have heard the first home game the following week will be at Danville High against Maryville College.
The Colonels will finally get to see and play in the new stadium, October 8, 2022, after coming off the road for consecutive games. The October 8th game will be against our long time adversary, the Sewanee Tigers.
