Fastest / quickest players on your team


Recommended Posts

Who are the fastest players for the team(s) you will cheer for in 2006?

 

From what I have seen and heard from coaches and other players (I don't know all the players at the 2 schools I generally cheer for).

 

South Laurel - Cody Quinn, Terry Bingham, Logan Baker

 

North Laurel - Shawn Asher, Trae Stuber, Shylow Robinson

 

I don't think any of these kids are in the rare categories regarding speed (eg. no 4.3 or 4.4 guys), but probably all in the 4.6 - 4.8 range.

Rockcastle County

 

Shawn Childress: Low 4.5, he has repeatedly ran this, this year and was clocked that last year as well in a combine. He plays WR, TE and S.

Dusty Miller: Mid 4.5, he and Childress are toe and toe together, he was also timed this last year. He and Childress were up against Blackwood from Corbin last year and they both beat him at the combine in the 40. He plays TB and corner.

Izak McQueary: Gotten a lot faster this year, he is a mid to low 4.6. He plays TB, QB, Corner and WR.

I believe that Rockcastle and North Laurel scrimmage each other this season. I may have to check that out. Looks like there could be some good athletes on the field that night!

Ryan Howard is the quickest running back i've ever seen in my life. Not the fastest,(very fast though), but the quickest. He's got moves like Barry Sanders, its unreal to watch him run.

 

I have seen him play at least once each of the past few seasons. He is the one of the quickest backs I have every seen. He has very good speed, but makes amazing cuts. I am very impressed with him. I also like how hard he runs. That is the difference between a good back and a great one IMHO. I will get to see him play again in 2006!!! :thumb:

Hoptown: Brandon Ethridger WR, DB. Never has been timed in the forty. As a sophmore did beat Curtis Pulley by two steps in a race infront of the the entire team. Brandon was pushing Emanuel Taylor for the starting RB job before breaking his foot in an intrasquad scrimmage. 2nd fastest Chris Thomas QB. Chris runs close to a 4.5 and has picked up 40 lbs on his bench press.

Thunder,

 

I made my statement based on Spring Practice which thus far has featured Teague at quarterback. I have heard (not confirmed) that McCumbers has not participated in the Spring Drills.

 

McCumbers has a good arm and a high football mentality, but I do not think he would fit the option very well. McCumbers has very slight frame (5-10 140) and is not considered fast. I do not know his 40 time but I have watched him play since he was a second grader and he has never been a runner. He is very smooth and he can flat out throw the ball but contact is not one of his strong points. He is a pocket quarterback.

 

Mark Teague on the other hand has been the premier runner in the Whitley Feeder program since he was in the 4th grade. He played some in the backfield last year behind Rider and displayed his running ability several times on punt/kickoff returns. Teague is very fast and he also sees the field very well. Teague has the physical attributes to be an ideal option quarterback. He is fast and has good size (5-10 180). Teague will make a lot of noise over the next two seasons. I think he will ba star at quarterback.

 

In my opinion, Whitley will be a very good option team. I think they will be one of the more explosive teams in the mountains next year running the option. Whitley's roster is much more suited to a power running attack than they are to a passing oriented attack.

 

Purely speculation on my behalf, but I would not be surprised to see McCumber's look to transfer. He is a three sport athlete but he is an awfully talented quarterback to not play. Teague clearly has the better physical attributes for an option attack but McCumbers would be an ideal fit for a passing attack like Jim Black's. Regardless of how it turns out, I wish Jordan the best. He is a terrific kid.

Joe Roskopf of Lynn Camp has about 4.6 speed, and he has had a great off season, which should make him better. Sidney Wagner also has tremendous speed, and hopefully will have a breakout season.
