We all Thought That The Oklahoma Sooners Quarterback Kyler Murray (#1) (5-10, 195, 4.32) was Probably Not Going To Play in The NFL, because he had Already Signed a Multi-Million Dollar Contract To-Play Major League Baseball with The Baseball Oakland Athletics, who Drafted him #9 in The 2018 Major League Draft.

“The Baseball Career for Kyler Murray had always had a “Very Defined Path” which included playing Football for The Oklahoma Sooners, but for only in The 2018 Football Season,” Said his Agent Scott Boras.

The Problem with This “Very Defined Path” for Kyler Murray was that he Might become One of The Greatest Quarterbacks To Ever Play Quarterback in College and The Same Might Also be said about him in The NFL.

Murray is one of The Best Athletic Dual-Threat College Quarterbacks that I Have Ever Seen. He just has The Unbelievable Athleticism, and there is a reason that he was one of The Most Sought-After Recruits in The Country, but he is more than just a Great Athletic Dual-Threat Quarterback, because Murray has an Incredibly Quick-Release and He Throws Really Impressive Darts past Defensive Backs.

So, my Question is this and Since Murray Is An Athletic Freak! What Would Happen if Murray Won The Heisman Trophy Award and then Decided to Play in The NFL in 2019?

After weeks of Speculation, we now know that Heisman Trophy Winner Kyler Murray has now decided to Declare for The 2019 NFL DraftAlthough Murray has Declared for The NFL Draft, it is not The Official End Of His Baseball Career with The Oakland Athletics who Drafted Him #9 in The 2018 Major League Baseball Draft and had Already Signed him to a Multi-Million Dollar Contract To-Play Major League Baseball.

When Murray Signed With The Oakland Athletics about a week after The Major League Baseball Draft, he Signed with The Strict Understanding that he was Definitely going to play One More Football Season for The Oklahoma Sooners as The Replacement for The Heisman Trophy Oklahoma Quarterback Baker Mayfield. He also Stated that he would be at The 2019 Baseball Spring Training for The Athletics.

What is Really Interesting is that The Arizona Cardinals Hold The NFL #1 Draft Choice and their New Head Football Coach, Kliff Kingsbury, has already been Quoted as Saying that he would Draft Kyler Murray as The #1 Overall Selection in The 2019 Draft, if given the Chance.

An ESPN Scout Adam Schefter has Reported that The Arizona Cardinals are Prepared to do just that, Although They Had Already Drafted Super Quarterback Josh Rosen in The#10 Overall Selection in The 2018 NFL Draft.

Coach Kingsbury has Made a Fabulous Reputation in Coaching Great Quarterbacks to Stardom as he has Already Coached Such Super-Stars Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M and Patrick Mahomes at Texas Tech. It is also Pretty Obvious that Coach Kingsbury would love to be able to Coach Heisman Trophy Award Winning Quarterback Kyler Murray in his First Football Season with The Arizona Cardinals.

After Hearing About The Kyler Murray Decision, There was an Interesting Response from The Major League Baseball Response, as they Decided To Waive a Rule, at The Athletics Request To Prohibit Teams From Offering Draftees a Major League Contract.

The Athletics were already prepared To Place Their Prize Draftee, Kyler Murray (In Photo), on Their 40-Man Spring Roster, and Essentially Fast-Tracking Him into The Baseball Major Leagues, in an Huge Effort to Convince Him to Stay With His Baseball Contract. The Athletics also Sent Some of Their Top High-Ranked Officers, Including Vice President of Baseball Operations Billy Beane and General Manager David Forst in an Attempt to try to Convince him To Continue his Baseball Career.

Even after The Oakland Athletics Top Brass and The Top Major League Executives Efforts to get Murray to Change his Mind about going to The NFL instead of going to The Major League Baseball, Murray has Continued To Keep His Decision to Declare for The NFL.

The Difference In-Money is not that much, because Rookie Deals in The NFL Could Actually Duplicate his Baseball Signing Bonus and his Salary Could be Gigantic for a Heisman Trophy Winner. Also, as a #1 NFL Draft Choice, Murray Could Actually Be Guaranteed a Bigger Salary and Make More Money in Football.

In The 2018 Heisman Trophy Season, Kyler Murray ( #1) Broke Two Of The Oklahoma School Records of The 2017 Heisman Trophy Winning Quarterback Baker Mayfield, as he Recorded a School Record of Total Offensive Yards With 5,362-Yards and Total Touchdowns Accounted For with 54 Touchdowns. Murray broke those School Records with One Fewer Games than Mayfield.

The Football Bowl Series had Never had a Quarterback in History who had Averaged 300-Yards Passing and 60-Yards Rushing, but in 2018, Heisman Trophy Winning Oklahoma Quarterback Kyler Murray Averaged an Incredible 311.5-Yards Passing and 71.5-Yards Rushing for The Entire Football Season.

CHAPTER FIFTEEN – Most Unbelievable Facts To Remember About The Brownwood Texas State Championship!

CHAPTER FIFTEEN

Most Unbelievable Facts To Remember
About The 1960 Brownwood High School Texas State Championship!
By Max Emfinger

One of the Most Unbelievable Facts to Remember about The Brownwood High School 1960 Texas State Championship Team was that some of these Players, who had NEVER Played on the Varsity had Incredible Seasons. Everyone Expected the Six Returning Letterman to Play Extremely Well, including Seniors Strong End/DE Lawrence Elkins, OT/DT Ronney Moore, OT/DT Mike Greer, Fullback/Linebacker A.D. Carnes, QB Jimmy Herman, and Junior Tailback/Safety Max Emfinger, but some of the Other Starters were just Plain Mind-Boggling, because No Other Players had any Experience on the Varsity.

In Finishing The 1960 State Championship Season, I Rushed for 1,363-Yards and had 2,623-Yards of All-Purpose Yardage, Scored 10 Rushing Touchdowns, Threw Two Touchdown Passes to Elkins (San Angelo and Mineral Wells), Had Two 90-Yard Kickoff Returns for Touchdowns (Killeen and Weatherford), Had One 65-Yard Interception for a Touchdown (San Angelo), Had 4 Two-Point Conversions, Accounted-For 98-Points and Threw Two Touchdown Passesand Recorded 6 Interceptions on Defense, including Four Interceptions in One Game Against San Angelo and One Interception (Waco University and Graham).

In The 1961 Co-District Championship Season, I Rushed for 674-Yards and had 1,056-Yards of All-Purpose Yardage, Scored 9 Rushing Touchdowns, had Three Two-Point Conversions, 60-Points Scored and One Interception (Weatherford).

In 1959, As a Sophomore, With 177-Yards Rushing, 606-Yards of All-Purpose Yardage, Three Touchdowns, and One Two-Point ConversionMy Three-Year Varsity Career was as Follows:

2,214-Yards Rushing – 4,285-Yards of All-Purpose Yardage – 178-Points Scored – Two Touchdown Passes – 4 Interceptions in One Game – 7 Interceptions – 11.1 Yards Per Touch – 386 Touches –

Ben Elledge was a Super-Star Quarterback who was Fabulous as he led the Brownwood “B” Team to a Great 8-1 Season, Losing only to San Angelo Central, but then Beating Breckenridge Twice.

With the New Offense, using the 1-4 Cutback and 2-8 Cutback as Their Most Dominant Plays, it was of Vital Importance that the Two Offensive Guards and Center Needed to be Extremely Quick and Athletic and Senior Gerald Pitts at 149-Pounds and Junior Bobby Staudt at 162-Pounds were Incredible, to go with a 149-Pound Center David Smith in Pulling And Leading Through The HoleSpeedy Junior Wingbacks John Cadenhead at 152-Pounds and Junior Charles Coffey at 140-Pounds and Senior Strong End Lawrence Elkins at 178-Pounds would Double-Team the Defensive End. Junior Quarterback Ben Elledge, at 178-Pounds would join Fullback A.D. Carnes at 171-Pounds, and All Seven of These Super-Stars would Lead-Me around the Right End 1-4 Cutback or Left End 2-8 Cutback and then I would “Cutback” behind all of them for Huge Gains.

With Senior Ronney Moore at Strong Tackle, he would also be Blocking in the Cutback and Senior Mike Greer, who was the Weak-Side Tackle would go Downfield and Join Junior Quick End Eddie Daniel in making Key-Blocks in the Middle of the Field, after I had Broke-Away from all other Would-Be Tacklers.

On Defense, Juniors Ronnie Davis at 161-Pounds, Charles Coffey at 140-Pounds, and Terry Dummer at 165-Pounds were Extremely Great Defensive Players and Sometime Offensive Stars. Sophomores James Crow at 154-Pounds, Doug Young at 168-Pounds, Dale Wheelis at 184-Pounds and Grayson Wetzel at 150-Pounds were Outstanding Defensive Players, but Remember that all of the Starters played on Both Sides of the Line of Scrimmage.

Senior Quarterback Jimmy Herman at 149-Pounds and Senior Quick End Donnie Gersbach at 156-Pounds also made Great Offensive Plays as did Juniors Jimmy Thompson at 144-Pounds and Ronnie Middleton at 150-Pounds.

The 4-AAA 1960 All-District Team Included Several Brownwood Lions, including Quarterback Ben Elledge, Running Back Max Emfinger, Strong End Lawrence Elkins, and Quick Guard Gerald Pitts on Offense and on Defense with Tackle Ronney Moore, Linebacker A.D. Carnes, and Linebacker Eddie Daniel.

In that 1960 State Championship Game, I Rushed for 107-Yards on 16 Carries, had Two Pass Catches for 29-Yards, and a 46-Yard Kick-Off Return and Finished with 182 All-Purpose Yards and a 9.6-Yards Per Touch Average.

As a Football Player, in the Games that I Played-In, My High School Football Record was 28-2-1 in The Three Years on the Varsity Including a 1960 Football State Championship and then In Track, I was a Member of Two Regional Championships in 1960 and 1961 and a State Championship in 1962. I was the Only Three-Year Letterman in my 1962 Graduating Class in Both Football and Track.

After The 1961 Football Season, I was Selected All-District, All-Area, All-State, and All-American by Wigwam Wisemen of America. I was Very Excited about making The All-American Team as I joined Five other Brownwood High School Lion Legends, including some of my Heroes: QB Leondous Fry and OT Ben Woodson in 1952; RB Ray Masters in 1953; QB Tommy Butler in 1958; and End Lawrence Elkins in 1960. All of these Players have been Selected to The Gordon Wood Hall of Champions.

The Incredible Drew Brees Story is The Most Incredible Story in History! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

The Incredible Drew Brees Story is The Most Incredible Story in History!
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

January 13, 2019

Image result for Drew brees Photos

Forty-Two Years Ago, in 1976, I was living in Dallas, Texas and I was a Talent Scout for The Dallas Cowboys. Then, Twenty Years Later, I was living in Houston, Texas and I was in The Astrodome and Scouting a High School Senior from Austin, Texas. I’m positive that I lost you in those first two Sentences, so let me explain.

Twenty Years after 1976 was 1996 and I was living in Houston, Texas. I had just Founded The First High School Football Recruiting Service in 1979 and I was getting ready to go to The Texas 5A Semi-Finals Football Game in The Astrodome. I will always remember that this 5A Semi-Finals Game was going to be a really great game between a Very Talented Local Aldine High School Team against an Undefeated Austin Westlake TeamAt this Game in The Astrodome, I found out that the Austin Westlake Chaparrals had an Incredible Passing Quarterback and he was in Total Control of the Game from Start to Finish and the Chaps won that Game 42-21, sending them to The 1996 5A State Championship Game, again in The Astrodome on the Following Saturday, against another Super Football Team, Abilene Cooper.

After Austin Westlake easily beat an Always Tough Aldine Team, I decided to do some Research on This Westlake Super-Star, but Short, Quarterback. I knew that Drew Brees was not on my National High School Football Recruiting List or on any other College Football Recruiting Lists, but I also found-out that Brees had an ACL Injury as a Junior, but by leading his Team to a 15-0 Record and into The 5A Texas State Championship, this guy needed to be Recruited and Recruited by a Lot of Major College Football Teams.

I Immediately put Brees on my National Recruiting Top Players List and into the Max Emfinger’s National Recruiting Newsletter. With what I had already seen him do to a Powerful Aldine Team, I Rated and Ranked him as one of the Top Five or Six Quarterbacks in the Country and I could not wait until The 5A State Championship Game in The Astrodome.

In The 5A State Championship Game, I was on the Austin Westlake Sideline and I watched Brees with Great Interest on every single play and he was Incredible as he led his Chaps Team to an Unbelievably, Convincing 55-15 Victory over another Powerful Abilene Cooper Team and The Texas 5A State Football Championship.

In this 5A Texas State Championship Game, I also noticed that Brees had a Knee Brace on his Left Knee and after the Game, as I was leaving The Astrodome, I saw Brees and I was about to ask him how his Knee was doing, but some of his Teammates came-up to him and I decided not to try to ask him.

My 1996 December Recruiting Newsletter was Mailedthe next weekend and I put hisFinal Passing Stats in it that included 211 of 333 Attempts for 3,528-Yards and 31 Touchdowns. This was Impressive, but his 64% Completion Record was just as  Impressive. The Max Emfinger’s National Football Recruiting Newsletter was sent to Around 12,000 Individual Recruiting-Buffs and about 75 College Football Teams, including Purdue and Texas. Later, in December, I got another Call from Purdue Offensive Coordinator/Recruiting Coordinator Jim Chaney and he asked me about this Quarterback named Drew Brees.

Purdue had just hired Head Coach Joe Tiller (In Blue Shirt) and Offensive Coordinator/Recruiting Coordinator Jim Chaney (In Burgundy Shirt) from Wyoming and they were a little behind in their Recruiting and they were looking for some “Recruiting Steals” on some Super-Star Players that might have been “Flying Under the Radar” to most College Teams. I Never talked to Coach Tiller, but I had talked to Coach Chaney a couple times and I knew that they were looking for Players like Drew Brees, Andy Dalton, and Kliff Kingsbury for Their Unbelievable Passing Spread Offense.

Image result for Drew Brees and Jim Chaney PhotosI then got another call from Coach Chaney in January and he told me that he and Coach Tiller both really liked Drew Brees and that they were going to have him in for an Official Visit on the Final Weekend in January before National Signing Date on the First Wednesday in February.

While at Purdue, Chaney, along with Head Coach Tiller, (Both in the Photo Below, became known for using the “Spread Offense” which was Famously “Dubbed” as “Basketball-On-Grass” at a Time in College Football History when Almost all of The Great Football Teams were Using The Running-Game and The Passing-Game was Considered a Huge Novelty and The Passing-Game was not even-being used. Later, it became The Air-Raid Passing Attack Offense with My Good Friend and Coach Mike Leach.

The Purdue Offensive Game Plan Relied on a Strong Passing-Game and The Chaney Offense was one of The Most Successful Offenses in the Country. This was evidenced by the fact that Their Future Super Bowl Winning Quarterback, Drew Brees, was His Starting Quarterback from 1997-2000 and this Unbelievable Passing Offense Broke Numerous Purdue, Big-10, and NCAA Passing Records.

New Georgia Head Football Coach Kirby Smart made his first big hire as The Georgia Head Football Coach when he made Coach Jim Chaney The New Bulldog Offensive Coordinator and Leader of his Georgia Offense. While Chaney has spent six of the last seven years of his career in the SEC, Many of the Bulldog Fans may not know much about the Long-Time Incredible Offensive Coordinator.

New Orleans Quarterback Drew Brees put up Fabulous Stats under Jim Chaney at Purdue With 11,560-Yards and 90 Touchdowns.

Coach Jim Chaney Gets New Job

After Three Incredible Years as The Georgia Offensive Coordinator, Coach Jim Chaney (In Photo Below) Has Agreed to a Three-Year, $4.8 Million Contract, with The Rival Tennessee Vols, that runs through January 31, 2022. In his New Contract, Chaney will Earn $1.5 Million in The 2019 Season, with an $100,000 Increases in each of the Next Two Seasons.

One huge Ironic Fact was the Fact that although Drew Brees Lived in Austin, Texas and only a Few Miles away was The University of Texas, but he was not Recruited by the Longhorns, because they had already Recruited Two Quarterbacks and had Verbal Commitments from both of them. The Longhorns thought that both of these Commitments Were Outstanding.

At that time, one of The Longhorn Recruits was a 6-1 Athletic Quarterback Named Major Applewhite of Baton Rouge Catholic, Louisiana, and I saw him play in Baton Rouge and I Thought He Was One Of  The Top Quarterback’s in the Country.

The other Longhorn Quarterback Recruit was a 6-4 No-Huddle Passing Quarterback Named Greg Ciero of Anaheim Servite, California. He also was a Top Quarterback and he had a lot of Raw PotentialAs Freshmen, neither of these two Great Longhorn Quarterbacks would have to play, because they would both be playing behind Senior Super-Star James Brown.

Then, As a Sophomore, Applewhite became a Texas Super-Star, while Ciero Transferred to Polomar Junior College and then was Selected Junior College All-American before Transferring to Baylor University. The Irony was that all Three Quarterbacks that could have ended-up as a Texas Longhorn Became Super-Stars in 2000.

Although the ABC Quarterback Club of Applewhite, Brees, and Ciero were Highly Successful; only one of those Three Quarterbacks was Sitting in New York at both the 1999 and 2000 as Finalists for The Heisman Trophy Award.

Brees did not have an Eye-Popping Freshman Campaign, at Purdue, but Coach Chaney gave him a chance to be the Starting Quarterback for The Boilermakers Spread Offense as a Sophomore. Brees, then was so Unbelievably Impressive, as a Sophomore, Brees was Selected by his Teammates as the Boilers Team Captain in both his 1999 and 2000 Seasons.

After Finishing Fourth in the 1999 Heisman Trophy Voting, Brees had a chance to Come-Out Early for The 1999 NFL Draft, but he Decided to Stay With Coach Tiller and Coach Chaney and he decided to Come-Back for his 2000 Senior Season. In that Senior Season, Brees led The Boilermakers to Last-Minute UPSET Victories over both Ohio State and Michigan, giving Purdue, Coach Tiller, and Coach Chaney their First Big-10 Championship in Three Decades.

Drew BreesPurdue Coach Joe Tiller and Drew Brees as they Celebrate their Big-10 Championship and
a Trip to Pasadena!

Boilermaker Fans, had you ever thought we could be going to The Rose Bowl,” Brees Shouted to the Fans as he Accepted the Big-10 Championship Trophy. “This is, by far, The Greatest Moment of my Life, so Far,” Brees Further Said.

In that Game Against Indiana and Against Another one of my Long-Time, Good Friends, Head Coach Cam Cameron, Brees threw for one Touchdown and ran for another Touchdown. He Completed 20 of 29 Passes for 216-Yards and ran for another 85-Yards, giving him 301-Yards of Total Offense as he became the First Quarterback to lead The Boilermakers to Pasadena since Bob Griese. It was their First Big-10 Championship in 34 Years.

2000 Heisman Trophy Finalists L to R: QB Drew Brees, Purdue; Heisman QB Chris Weinke, FSU; RB LaDainian Tomlinson, TCU; and QB Josh Heupel, Oklahoma.

After another Fabulous Season, Brees was again Selected as a Finalist for The Heisman Trophy Award. The Top Four in the Heisman were Heisman Trophy Award Winning QB Chris Weinke of Florida State; QB Josh Heupel of Oklahoma; QB Drew Brees of Purdue; and RB LaDainian Tomlinson of TCU.

These Four Super-Star College Football Players were Sitting in New York City on December 9, 2000 for The Heisman Trophy Award.

The 2000 Heisman Trophy Award Re-United Two Great Football Players from Texas, including Brees from Austin Westlake and Tomlinson from Waco University, just  a few miles apart on I-35. In Fact, I lived in Austin, twice for Two Years and Waco twice for Six Years.

Brees and Tomlinson had both played together in a Texas High School All-Star Football Game and had become Great Friends after their High School Football Season and now these Two Great Texas Football Players were together again in New York City as Finalists for the Heisman Trophy. “Wouldn’t it be Great if we could both play on the same NFL Team,” Tomlinson told Brees in New York City.

Brees left Purdue with “Mind-Boggling” Stats and one of the Most Impressive Quarterbacks in Big-10 History as he broke Two NCAA Passing Records, 13 Big-10 Records, and 19 Purdue Passing Records. Some of these Records are still standing, including his 1,026 Completions for 11,815-Yards Passing, and 90 Touchdown Passes. His 12,692-Yards of Total Offense was also a Record. He also had Seven 400-Yard Games and Sixteen 300-Yard Games.

So now it’s time for The NFL Draft, but before the 2001 Draft, Brees attended The 2001 NFL Scouting Combine where he did much better than most NFL Scouts had expected. All of The NFL Scouts knew that he was about Six-Foot, but they did not know that he was so Quick as he Shocked them when he ran an Amazing 4.21 in the Pro-Shuttle and Ran a 4.83 Forty at the Scouting Combine, but on Pro-Day, he improved that Forty Time to a Great 4.67Also Remember that a lot of NFL Passing Quarterbacks can not run a 5.0 Forty.

I will NEVER forget The Night on The Dan Patrick Show when Brees Laughingly read his NFL Draft Profile on the Air: “There is a Question about Drew Brees ability to throw the Deep Pass; but his Accuracy is a Question, and of course, his Height is a Question.” – Brees Laughingly Said.

Although Brees did not have Great Height, he had Incredible Passing Stats and Shockingly Great Measurables for a Passing Quarterback; but he was not Drafted until The San Diego Chargers took him in the First Pick of Round Two in the 2001 Draft which was the #32 Overall Selection.

Sometimes, The Lord works in Strange Ways his Miracles to Perform. In The 2001 NFL Draft, The San Diego Chargers selected RB LaDainian Tomlinson as their #1 Draft Choice.

Everyone thought that Drew Brees would be Drafted in the First Round of the 2001 NFL Draft, but too many NFL Teams believed that he was Too Short to become a Great Passing Quarterback in the NFL, but if he was Drafted in The First Round, he Would Have NEVER Been able to Play onThe Same Team with his Good Friend, From Texas.

The San Diego Chargers Got Two Incredible Texans in The 2001 NFL Draft Picks That Were Both Heisman Trophy Award Candidates in RB LaDainian Tomlinson and QB Drew Brees!

The Miracle that was Performed was that the San Diego Chargers were able to Re-Unite these Two Texans, Brees and Tomlinson, as they were able to Select Brees in the First Draft Pick of the Second Round of the NFL Draft to go with their #5 Overall Selection of Tomlinson in The First Round. The Chargers were able to get an Unbelievable Two Super-Star Players that were both in New York City for the Heisman Trophy Award.

With the help of The Miracle of Re-Uniting with his Texas Friend LaDainian Tomlinson, Brees began his NFL Career in 2002, with The San Diego Chargers. Then Two Years Later, with My Friend and Offensive Coordinator Cam Cameron, Tomlinson, and Brees helped lead The Chargers to a Division Championshipwhile Tomlinson was Selected All-Pro and Brees was Selected to the 2004 NFL Pro Bowl.

These Two 2001 NFL Super Draft Picks (#9 QB Drew Brees) and (#21 RB LaDainian Tomlinson) Of The San Diego Chargers Helped The Chargers in 2004 To Win Their First Divisional Championship In A Decade And Both Players Are Future NFL Hall Of Fame Players!

Then Nine Months Later, in 2005, after suffering a Really Bad Shoulder Joint Dislocation and a 360 degree tear of his Labrum and Rotator Cuff, Brees became an NFL Free Agent.

In the last game of the 2005 Season, Brees should not have been playing in the Game. The Chargers were 9-6, but they had absolutely no chance of improving their NFL Playoff Seeding as the Game started. However, General Manager A.J. Smith and Head Coach Marty Schottenheimer had already started a War that would eventually lead to the Departure of Schottenheimer from The Chargers, because of the Quarterback Position War.

In his Rookie Season, Philip Rivers, although he was seen as the future Chargers Franchise Quarterback, was named as the Third Team Quarterback on The Chargers Roster behind Brees and Doug Flutie.  By not Starting Rivers, in the Last Game, it looked like it was a Punishment for Rivers, because he was a Hold-Out and missed part of The Training Camp. In this Last Game of the Season, Schottenheimer made the decision to start Drew Brees in a Meaningless Game so that the fans would not see their Young Future Super-Star Philip Rivers.

So, here is what happened. Standing in his own End-Zone, Drew Brees was Sacked by a blitzing John LynchHe fumbled The Football when he was hit, and when he dove back on top of the Football, Brees was Crushed by Gerald Warren in a Bone-Rattling Tackle. Brees left the Football Game in obvious pain and he then handed the team over to Philip Rivers.

As Brees became a Free Agent after that 2005 Season, he was not expected to return to The Chargers, because they had already Committed a Lot of Money to Quarterback Philip Rivers. The Chargers eventually designated Brees as their Franchise Player, giving him a One-Year Contract that quadrupled his pay to $8 Million for the 2005 Year. Under the terms of a Franchise Player Contract, Brees would then be Eligible to be Traded or Sign with another NFL Team, but The Chargers would then Receive two future #1 Draft Choices in return. Brees was not traded and continued as Starting Quarterback for the remainder of the 2005 Season.

At this time, there were Two NFL Teams that needed a Quarterback and those Two Teams were The Miami Dolphins and The New Orleans Saints. The Saints were coming off of a Horrible 3-13 Record, and Dealing with Hurricane Katrina, but they had just hired a new Head Football Coach named Sean Payton and Brees wanted to Sign with a Team that would Guarantee him a Starting Quarterback Spot.

The Dolphins wanted to Sign Brees, but The Dolphins did not want to offer him as much money as The Chargers and they would not Guarantee him a Starting Quarterback Spot. With new Head Football Coach Sean Payton, The Saints Offered The Same Salary as The Chargers, but Coach Sean Payton (In Photo Below with #9 Brees) was willing to Guarantee him a Starting Quarterback Spot if he could get Healthy before coming to The Saints Training Camp.

It only took Brees one trip to Katrina Stricken New Orleans to know that he Could make a huge difference in The Saints Football Team and also the People of New Orleans. So he Signed with The New Orleans Saints, got Healthy before Training Camp, and then led them to an Unbelievable 10-6 Record in his First Season.

After Signing with The Saints, Drew Brees Earned Nine Trips to The Pro Bowlwas a 2006 NFL All Pro Team Selection; was 2006 Walter Payton Player of the Year; was 2008 and 2011 Offensive Player of the Year; and was Super Bowl XLVI Super Bowl Game MVP Against The Indianapolis Colts. Brees was also Selected 2004 Comeback Player of the Year; and was also Selected in 2011 by Sports Illustrated as Sportsman of the Year.

After Playing in 17-Years in The NFL; Playing Five Years with The Chargers and Twelve Years with The Saints. His Hall of Fame Career Stats in 249 Games, included 6,222 Completions out of 9,294 Attempts for 70,445-Yards Passing and an Incredible 488 Touchdown Passes.

Brees takes Great Pride in his On-The-Field Performances, but he also takes Great Pride in his Community Service Endeavors. Drew and his Beautiful Wife, Brittany, Established The Brees Dream Foundation in 2003 and since then have Contributed and Committed almost $25,000,000 to help improve the quality of life for Cancer Patients and To-Provide Care, Education, and Other Outstanding Opportunities for Children and families in need. Brees has also proudly participated in five USO Trips to Kuwait, Iraq.

Afghanistan, Germany, Turkey, Djibouti, Dubai, Okinawa, and Guantanamo Bay.

The Tigers also look-like The Only College Football Team that has The Overall Football Talent To-Challenge The Crimson Tide and any other College Football Team for The National Championship.

The Crimson Tide still have Won Five National Championships since The 2009 Football Season, but in the Last Three Seasons they have Lost Two National Championship Games to Coach Swinney and The Clemson Tigers.

If you Watched This National Championship Game, you would Understand how Impressive The Football Talent is for The Clemson Tigers and Their Unique and Unbelievable Camaraderie between The Tiger Players and Coaches. Many of The Clemson Defensive Super-Stars Came Back for Their Senior Year to Help Head Coach Dabo Swinney and Defensive Coordinator Brent Venables To Win The National Championship.

I have been Evaluating Football Players for 48 Years and I have Never-Seen a better Quarterback Prospect than Trevor Lawrence. He has a Super Strong Arm and he Throws a Really Hard and Accurate Pass that his Talented Wide Receivers Can-Catch Quickly and Head To The End-Zone.

Lawrenceis a#1 Overall NFL Draft Selection in The 2021 NFL Draft and his Freshman Wide Receiver Teammate, Justyn Ross, will Join-Him in The 2021 First Round Draft, as he was Also Sensational in This Game as he made Several Incredible Catches, Including a Couple One-Handed Catches. Sophomore Wide Receiver Tee Higgins also made Several Incredible Catches and he will be a #1 Draft Choice in The 2020 NFL Draft.

TheTwo Clemson Super Stars are Still Teenagersjust out of High School. Lawrence Turned 19 in October and Ross Turned 19 a Couple Months Later in December. Think about what Lawrence at 6-6 and with The Unbelievable and Incredible Poise of Another Drew Brees, Tom Brady, or a Peyton Manning and Throwing Passes to Ross at 6-4, who is a Wide Receiver With Uncanny Athleticism and Acrobatic with Numerous One-Handed Catches.

Ross (#8) Caught Six Passes for 148-Yards and 2 Touchdowns in The CFP Semi-Finals Game Against Notre Dame and with Those Numbers, he was Selected to The Super Scout All-American Bowl Game Team. Then, with his Six Catches for 153-Yards in The National Championship Game, Ross Joined Lawrence and was Selected to The All-American Bowl Team for The Second TimeIn Both Games, Ross Recorded his Best Two Games of The 2018 Football Season. Also Remember that Both Ross and Lawrence were in High School Last Football Season.

The Unbelievable Ross made an Incredible Juggling Catch, another Incredible One-Handed Catch, and then Broke For Still Another Mind-Boggling and Incredible 74-Yard Touchdown about Midway through The Third Quarter that Gave The Tigers a Tremendous 37-16 Lead and then we saw Coach Swinney High-Stepping Up-And-down the Sidelines.

Then, they will Also have help from Super Sophomore All-American Running Back Travis Etienne who also was Very Impressive as he Rushed for 86-Yards, including a 17-Yard Touchdown Run and a 1-Yard Touchdown. Etienne also Caught a Short 5-Yard Touchdown Pass, from Lawrence, giving him 91-Yards of All-Purpose Offense and 3 Touchdowns in The Victory.

Many of The Clemson Tigers Top Talented Players in The National Championship Game were Freshmen or Sophomores Skill Players, including Freshman Quarterback Trevor Lawrence, Freshman Wide Receiver Justyn Ross, Sophomore Wide Receiver Tee HigginsSophomore Running Back Travis Etienne, Sophomore Cornerback A.J. Terrell, Sophomore Outside Linebacker Isaiah Simmons, and Junior Cornerback Trayvon Mullen.

Those Talented Underclassmen Players were Sensational Skill Players, but The Junior and Senior Players who Came-Back for their Senior Seasons, after Considering The 2018 NFL Draft are just as Talented and they will be High 2019 NFL Draft Choices. I would Say that at Least Three of These Clemson Super Stars will be #1 Draft Choices in The 2019 NFL Draft.

SCOUTING NOTE I: In Selecting College Weekly MVP’s, The Player had to be on The Winning Team, but in Selecting The Christmas All-American Teams, some of The Most Outstanding Players in The Country and with Some Unbelievable Stats were Deserving to be Rewarded and so I have gone back and added Several MVP Awards to Players, although they Had Lost their Game, but they Had Some Incredible Stats.

EXAMPLE: U-Mass WR Andy Isabella Caught Passes for 198, 191, 303, and 219-Yards, but He Lost in each Game; while UCLA TE Caleb Wilson Caught Passes for 164 and 184-Yards Against Arizona State and Stanford, but Lost; and LSU Super Linebacker Devin White Recorded 17 Tackles, including 12 Solo Tackles, 1 Sack, 4 TFL, and 1 Forced Fumble, but Lost Against Texas A&M. The SEC Still Selected White as The SEC Defensive Player of The Week.

2018 COLLEGE FOOTBALL MID-SEASON ALL-AMERICAN TEAM

2018 COLLEGE FOOTBALL
MID-SEASON ALL-AMERICAN TEAM

Three defensive standouts – Devin WhiteGreedy Williams and Grant Delpit – along with placekicker Cole Tracy have been named mid-season All-Americas by various news organizations for their efforts in leading LSU to a No. 5 national ranking and a 6-1 overall mark at the halfway point of the season.

Delpit, White and Williams were all named Mid-Season All-Americas by The Athletic, ESPN, and the Associated Press, while Tracy was recognized by The Athletic and was a second-team selection by the AP.

In addition to his spot on The Athletic’s Mid-Season All-America Team, Delpit was named by The Athletic national writer Bruce Feldman as the nation’s top defensive player for the first half of the season.

In Eight Games, seven games, Delpit has recorded 44 tackles and leads the Tigers in tackles for loss (7.5), interceptions (3), and is second on the team in sacks (3) and passes defended (7). He also has four quarterback hurries, four pass breakups and a forced fumble to his credit.

White, who is this week’s Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Week, has racked up a team-best 66 tackles, to go with 7.0 tackles for loss, one sack, three pass breakups, three passes defended and five quarterback hurries. He’s also recovered two fumbles and forced a fumble for an LSU defense that is allowing 16.9 points and 340.3 total yards per game.

Last week against Georgia, White recorded 13 tackles and recovered a fumble in the 36-16 win over the second-ranked Bulldogs. As a unit, LSU held Georgia to season lows for points (16), total yards (322) and rushing yards (113).

Williams, considered the nation’s top cornerback, has 22 tackles, a pair of interceptions and five passes defended for the Tigers.

Tracy, who leads the nation with 17 field goals, has been named the SEC Special Teams Player of the Week three times this year. He kicked the first walk-off game-winning field goal in LSU history in the 22-21 win over Auburn in week 3 and then tied a school-record with five field goals in the victory over Georgia.

Tracy ranks first in the SEC in scoring with 74 points and his 17 field goals already ranks No. 5 on LSU’s single-season list.
