    Congrats to the Rebels

    West Monroe was the better team.

    But, had a blast nonetheless! Saw all three Sat games...and good thing we went when we did, monsoons flooded area streets and kept attendance down for the Rummel-WM game. My sister and her crew kept trying and arrived about 20 mins before kickoff. Streets were closed, but she knows all the side routes and was able to make it to the Dome. Unfortunately thousands of others could not and so attendance was down a little.

    The Neville QB is good, but I think he's too slow to be effective in DI football. Maybe....maybe not. He has lots of positives, but his lack of foot speed could be a problem. Neville also has a good kicker. And some kid...#13, I think, who looked good.

    Great atmosphere! Gotta love high school football.

    Anyway, always proud to be a Rummel Raider.

    Congrats to this year's champions.

    BTW, the rains let up and streets opened by the time our game was over...LATE into the night...and it was crazy seeing all these cars abandoned on medians and along the streets. Obviously their owners gave up and waded home or something. Eerie.

    You are a good sport. I posted in another thread about the Rummel defense and the cap I owe you. The Rummel defense was great!

    By foot speed I assume you mean in and around the LOS. I didn't notice any stumbling, but did notice a big guy moving pretty well. I'm sure they will work on his mechanics. In case you mean running speed...a 4.7 6'3" guy never looks fast when he has a 4.5 5'10" guy coming from behind with the angle.

    #13 is a freshman.

    Burch? That's the Neville QB, right?

    Like I said...tons of positives. Good QB. I just noticed he was a little slow. Too slow for DI football? I dunno. But as a scout (which I was for a time) I'd note that as a a concern. DI defensive linemen and linebackers are fast.

    I dont think we will be asking him to run that much. Also If you noticed he has alot of "stuff" on his knee since the injury, hampers his speed just a bit. Kid played Centerfield in baseball before the injury. I have been high on him since I saw him at a 7 on 7 camp during his freshman season and glad as hell he is going to Tech.

    Didn't he take off for about a 65 yard run in the 1st quarter? He out ran plenty of guys until the last few steps. He just looks a tad slow due to his size I bet.

    "He finished with 17-of-25 passes complete for 305 yards and three touchdowns and eight carries for 92 yards."

    He can't be that slow to average 11.5 yards per carry. I know he's not as slow as Mallet, the Arkansas QB.

    He's listed at 4.6 which translates to a 4.7. :icon_wink:

    First time I ever saw him was on the diamond pre injury and he could roll!
    He isn't as fast post knee injury, but dawg80 he is fast enough to play div. 1 QB.

    If this kid is Tech-bound, I hope all of you are right.

    I did not know about his knee injury. Made an observation based on what I saw. I know what I saw...with my own eyes.

    Whatever. Are you basing your opinion on the one long run? That's the only one that stood out, but 4.7 will never out run 4.5. I don't think there would be much difference in a foot race between him, R.J, and C.C.. I'd take a Kapernick, but there aren't many of those around.

    BTW, I forgot to ask your opinion on the last score by WM on the pass play. IMO it was typical Shows BS and should not have been called.

    That was classless against H.S. kids. The guy is an arseclown.

    No, I'm basing it on what I saw during the whole game. Now, if the kid has a bad knee, then heck! that's the reason, and he'll recover from that and be fast again. But, if that is all he's got...well...he'll struggle at the DI level. Just my opinion.

    Well, personally, I have always maintained that it's the other team's job to try to score, and our team's job to try to stop 'em. I don't know Shows' motivation for it...maybe he thought 23 was not enough points...but, the defense has to continue to play...in this case for a full 48 mins. If there was a letdown, a loss of focus, then the Raider defense has only itself to blame*.

    But, that's me, I ask no quarter...and I offer none.





    * of course, all they did was carry the team all year, they were probably worn down by that time in the game...in the season.

    In the semifinal game on ice/mud he ran quite well also. He was very effective. He also had some power to run through arm tackles.
