    I saw that lakecitygator asked about 2015 Tallahassee Lincoln WR John Burt in the George Campbell thread but didn't get much of a response - and now I just saw him blowing up in the first half of a nationally televised game with a beautiful TD catch against S. Gwinnett on ESPN. He's 6-3, fast and looks very smooth. What's his deal? We don't seem to be on his radar, even though he's at a school we've always done well with. He damn sure looked great on that TD just now.

    As a Lake City Gator myself who has given up on us ever getting a kid from Columbia, I want us getting Lincoln kids. This is especially important because I just realized he lives about five houses away from me and is friends with my daughter. :whistle:

    He was at FNL's and got an offer. If I was the staff I would contiue to recruit George Campbell and Shawn Burgess-Becker an if we miss on those two then turn up the heat on Burt. We already have Phillips committed for 2015 we only need one more outside WR in that class at this time

    Becker is a guy who could play safety

    That is what he played last year but I think he is going to be a monster at WR

    I've read great things about Burt. Might be the second best WR in the state next year behind Phillips.

    Thanks for bringing this up again! His film from last year is amazing. He makes plays all over the field whether on defense, offense, or special teams. Spivey, what are our chances here? This kid is a very special player.

    I love his versatility. Big catches on offense, punt blocks, kick returns for TDs, big hits on D. He's a true athlete and a natural football player.

    I could have sworn Tom Luginbill mentioned something about the Gators being his leader early in that game today. Right after Burt's first long reception.

    Burt finished today's game with four catches for 130 yards (yes, almost 33 ypc) and two touchdowns. Oh and a late interception to seal the victory. I'd take the kid in a heartbeat. Maybe I'll offer him a ride to school next time I see him walking up to the bus stop. :grin:

    Like that wouldn't be creepy. Maybe offer him some candy to get into your van. :grin:

    Don't forget the clown costume and makeup.
