    Nothing like having a designated return threat.

    This reminds me of Meyer seemingly taking Ahmad Black to firm up all the Lakeland commits. That one turned out a lot better than most expected. Hopefully the same here.

    I still have the interception where Black ripped the ball out of the offensive player's hands at the national championship game in Miami burned into my memory. Sealed the game. Not a bad get.

    11.09 100 meter time as well.

    Kid has really good vision, patience, and shiftiness on kick and punt returns. Really nice use of the plant half-cut to get by dudes in close quarters while maintaining speed.

    Returners never run in a straight line. Gotta be a jitterbug.

    Not as shifty as Rainey, but he seems to break more tackles. Can't wait to see him get the ball.

    Not elite speed but pretty good, especially when included with elusiveness. Brandon James was the best at that, and he was a little more firmly built than Graham. Graham looks like he is a football player though.

    It can only help to have another Lakeland guy in Bowman's ear. I haven't given up hope yet.

    I’m sad. Positivity like yours gives me hope though.

    My only problem with Rainey was that he seemed to go down on first contact.

    he started the trend of our offensive woes for 10 years... he was the beginning of the end of our historic offensive Slaughters of our opponents. Addazio was the best coach for the other team
