The Road to Triage

Dax Hollifield- ranked 2nd in the nation at the position. Offers from everywhere. If they haven't offered its because they know they have no chance at him. From Stanford to UNC they have been courting this young man. Quick, smart, ball hawk, big tall frame. Kid doesn't just tackle, he punishes people. Lays his body out for the team.
Jaylon Scott- offers all across the country are coming in. Kid still has two years of high school football remaining. Kid is 6'2, 225 and moves well in traffic to get to the ball. Can cover receivers like a defensive back.
Will Stites- not the big body like Holifield and Scott. Still sizable for high school. Makes it up with heart. Headhunter in every way. Sneaks down in the trenches where somehow he pops out of nowhere to smack the runner.
It's going to be a long year for Shelby opponents.

Shelby games are fun. They have had so much success that big plays don't even get them excited unless it goes for 100 yards. Big crowds and a lot of the people who come are not Shelby natives (on the Shelby side). I've met many of the posters from CarolinaPreps and the other site. Crest, Shelby, and Burns are good people. Great stadium and field. Pathetic parking though.
