Just watch his film. Film don't lie. Too much emphasis put on what kids can do in shorts and t-shirts. Last I checked, football was still played in pads and helmets. Heart and effort isn't even a consideration anymore in recruiting. I just don't get it!!

Joey Curry QB Murphy High, rising senior. Curry has good size at 6'2 190 lbs, a strong arm, accurate and a solid athlete. Also possesses the intelligence and leaderships qualities for the position. The best player for the #2 ranked team in 1A preseason by both Maxpreps and Carolina Preps (behind only Tarboro).
Curry only threw one interception all season, which was in state title game where he showed amazing toughness in playing all but one play of the game with a deep cut on his throwing hand (that would later require stitches) as well as a sprained ankle.
Has strong bloodlines, brother Michael was freshmen All American catcher at the University of Georgia last season and is currently in contention for full All American honors this season batting .331 with 9 HRs. Joey is an excellent baseball player in his own right, current batting average is .600 and plays premium position of shortstop.
Curry is overlooked because he plays at the 1A level and plays for a team that is run heavy, has the tools to play at the next level and hopefully gets that opportunity.
