Re: What is your football experience?

TE/DE High School.

Half-way through had to decide between baseball & football b/c I couldn't keep my grades up...chose baseball.

Apparently I couldn't chase girls, hang out with my buds, play football & baseball, and keep my grades up all at the same time as a teenager.

Ended up coaching some football to pre-teen & teenagers while overseas during my military career.

Re: What is your football experience?

High school ball? LMAO went to St Pauls in Covinton back when we just moved up to triple A. small school with just enough players to field half a team. two way and played every where. Back injury sidelined me for two years.

Ended any hope of playing again while at the mighty power house of Castleton Spartans Vermont great division 111 school. MLB yep there is a woman in the story, somewhere. Like football that was a short story. not enough to fill a chapter lol

My scouting report? solid read and react skill set. good hands when defending of blockers. plays hard and plays nasty.

Loved laying people out and watch their eyes roll back in there head. The icing on the cake was when they started blowing snot bubbles. That was when you knew they were done for. Nothing better than a bone jarring hit to get your head into the game. Use to keep count in my locker of the knock outs. 6 in 8 games and it all came to end. A solid crack back block by a TE did me in. I did not see him. He laid me out and stood over me gloating. It was a great hit. All is fair in love and war

I could get up and go with the best of them. Top end speed? 4.55 40. But the real story was after 15 to 20 yards I had no more gears left and started sucking everyone's dust. that was were I could be beat. A step late all game long outside the tackles. In the box against the run I was not that bad. 2 down man

Did time in the video rooms of various universities athletic programs over the years. nothing big till I went to the Unv. of Minnesota. cut and pasting scouting and game tapes for the gophers.

I guess it is in my blood. I can watch tapes year around.

Re: What is your football experience?

Played in the Amateur Leagues in the UK for 8 years.

Started at 14 years old for the Nottingham Caesars

3 years of Flag Football
Rookie of the year first season with 14 receiving TD's
Offensive MVP the next season

I found flag football very easy, it gave me a great chance to focus solely on ball skills as I wasn't a particularly big guy but I was pretty fast and could beat coverage. I like to think I had pretty good hands too.

Started playing youth kitted at 17 years old
Two years of Youth kitted
Started at WR but quickly switched when our offense was nothing but run, run, run.
Changed to Free Safety and the very last play at Youth Kitted for me was a game winning interception
Played as starting Free Safety and Kick/punt returner mainly.

Went to the Senior Nottingham Caesars 18+ team

Did not get played at all in any games.

Left Nottingham and Signed with Lincolnshire Bombers.

First Preseason game - 2 TD's on wide receiver reverses, game MVP
First regular season game - 2 TD's and one 2 point conversion - offensive MVP.

3 Training sessions later - broke my fingers

After that the rest of the season followed the same way - Dislocated my shoulder and tore ligaments in my knee and work kind of made it difficult to continue even after those were all healed.

Would love to coach!!!

Check out my YouTube footage of my first regular season game for Lincolnshire

I score at 1:07, 1:17 and 2:44, I'm number 88 for Lincoln (white, black, red kit)
