GCTV: Mike Bellamy Interview

Top running back prospect Mike Bellamy is no stranger to success on both the gridiron and the track. A state champion in the 200 meters as a sophomore, Bellamy followed that up with a first-place finish in the 100 meters (10.51 seconds) on Friday afternoon at the Class 3A state track finals at Showalter Field in Winter Park.

Considered one of the top players on the board for Florida in the Class of 2011, Bellamy displayed that breath-taking speed on the field last fall as he rushed for 2,153 yards and 31 touchdowns on 216 carries last fall in helping to lead the Charlotte High School Tarpons to an 11-2 record and Class 4A regional final appearance. Gator Country’s Laura McKeeman had a chance to catch up with Bellamy on Friday afternoon to talk about his performance on the track, and looking ahead to how the recruiting process is shaping up for one of the most heavily pursued football players in the Sunshine State this year.
