There is no way to either trivialize or marginalize the importance of having a good center to anchor an offensive front. For some reason, the number 50 seems to be a very popular number for the position.

William Long of Hopkinsville (KY), an AP (First-Team) All-State offensive center wears the number 50. Wesley Burns, who doubled in 2018 at DE, in addition to anchoring the Greenbrier front, also wears the number 50. Both of these young men are representing “the old number 50” very well.

Wesley is 6-0 and weighs in at 200 pounds. We have seen highlight film (linked here) of Wesley and there were several things which jumped from off the screen at us. First of all, offensively, he ran his feet well and maintained, the majority of the time, excellent hand placement, and when necessary, replacement into the breast plate of the defender. He ran his feet well coming off the line and continued fervent activity blocking down the field through the whistle, finishing off his blocks well.

Defensively, Burns was active at DE possessing the ability to stand up tackles, read the backfield, and shed his blocker to get to the play whether closing down inside or chasing the play into the boundary. He seemed to set the edge well, scrape inside and out well, and possessed enough “get off” to bend by tackles and bring consistent edge pressure when it appeared that was the assignment.

Greenbrier suffered through a round season in 2018 especially for a program not accustomed to having rough seasons. Having a returning, two-way, stalwart to anchor both the offensive and defensive fronts should be key to seeing Bobcat football return to the level of play expected by the folks around Greenbrier and the rest of Robertson County.

Congratulations to the Class of 2020, Wesley Burns, Greenbrier High School, for being selected this week’s Stewart Williams Furniture Company’s Robertson County Player of the Week. Join us next week as we anoint a new recipient.
