    I assume alot of you have seen this mercurial high school phenom who signed with Michigan? It got me to thinking about our own remarkable pale skinned streaks through the years. Lance Alworth, Keith Lincoln, Dickie Post were all scary fast with moves like a water bug. Funny how people just don't equate white dudes to speed and jumping ability :icon_huh: This guy makes a habit out of hurdling would be tacklers, changes directions on a dime and simply outruns the angles taken by defenders. He's going to be fun to watch in the future. Enjoy...

    Good footage .. But, I'm guessing one of the first thing they teach him at Michigan is never leave your feet!

    Reminds me of Napoleon Kaufman.

    Should be fun watching him in college as long as those Michigan OLineman can blow open the kind of holes he's seeing in HS. I don't think there was one highlight where he got touched or even diverted before he was 10 yards downfield.

    Fast as hell though. That's for sure.

    I remember playing JC ball and our coach brought in this tape of lil' Nap when he was in HS (I think near Santa Maria or somewhere down south). That dude made the defenders look soooooo slow. He had a great career at Washington, too.

    Dude has some serious skills, and leaping over defenders is very entertaining, but if he tries that stuff at the Div I level, he is going to get lit the flock UP. Love his speed and elusiveness. If he does that in Michigan, then I'll really give him propers!

    I know he wasn't a Charger, heck, he wasn't even a football player, but you can't forget about Kurt Rambis. That guy rocked!:icon_eek:

    Ahh, but he had a heart as big as all outdoors. I loved the way he scrapped and clawed for rebounds and loose balls:tup:

    Wow... that kid has terrific vision for a high-schooler. Granted it's against other high-schoolers, but he takes great angles and knows where tacklers are coming from.

    Looks like a great prospect.

    Looks like an Eminem wanna-be.

    Of course... Eminem made it as a rare white-guy in niche dominated by blacks, so maybe there's hope for the kid. :icon_tease:
