SUPER WEEKLY MVP

“The Guice”

LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron probable gave us some Real Insight, earlier in the weekas to what the New LSU Offensive Game Plans might be in The Upcoming Game in Oxford against Ole Miss.

On The Ed Orgeron Weekly Radio Talk Show, an LSU Caller asked if The Tigers might be going to use more of the Short Passes in their Offensive Game Plan.Derrius Guice will be able to Go Full-Speed for the First Time this Season and he does a Great Job in Catching the Football Out of the Backfield,” said Coach Orgeron.

This was a Great Response that “The Guice” was going to be Carrying the Football a lot more and by either Carrying the Football or Catching the Football, Guice was going to be a Much-More Offensive Force, much like The Force at the End of the 2016 Season, when he “Put-Up” some Incredible Stats.

So what just Happened in Oxford?

Derrius Guice Ran for an Incredible Season-High 276-Yards and was Virtually Unstoppable in Leading The LSU Tigers to a Crushing 40-24 Victory over The Ole Miss Rebels on Saturday night.

In the Ole Miss Victory, Guice Actually Put his LSU Single-Game Rushing Record of 285-Yards Against Texas A&M Last Season in Jeopardy, after Three Quarters. Guice was in “Striking-Distance” of his Own LSU Record and also The SEC Single-Game Rushing Record of 321-Yards, but “The Guice” was “Saving-These-Records” for Later This Year.

Actually, “The Guice” did not Break those Two Records, but he Still Broke another Rushing Record when he became the First Player in SEC History to Rush for 250-Yards or more in Three Straight Games. When you are Playing in a Conference that Includes Herschel Walker, Bo Jackson, Leonard Fournette, and Several Others; this is an Incredible and Shocking Accomplishment.

LSU (6-2 and 3-1 in the SEC) has Won Three Straight Games and Quarterback Danny Etling also had his Best Game of the Season as he Completed 9 of 13 Passes for 200-Yards and Two Touchdowns.

This Game was More than “Just a Victory” for Coach Ed Orgeron, because he was the Ole Miss Head Coach for three Football Seasons from 2005-07.

Guice  (5-11, 218, 4.36, 36, 4.26) Rushed for 126-Yards in the First Half, which was already good enough for his Season-High. It was the biggest reason The Tigers had a 13-6 Lead by Half-Time and the he was far from Finished.

Ole Miss (3-4 and 1-3 in the SEC) came into the game with the Most Prolific Passing Offense, in the SEC, but struggled for pretty much the whole Night against The Great LSU Defense.

Ole Miss Super-Star Quarterback Shea Patterson Came into the Game Leading the SEC  with 2,143-Yards Passing, but he hurt his Right Knee in the Second Quarter and did not  play the final series of the First Half. He returned in the second half, but The Rebels Offense did not fare much better.

Patterson Completed only 10 of 23 Passes for 116-Yards, No Touchdowns and Three Interceptions.

It’s Pretty Unbelievable, that a Major College Football Team could have a Heisman Trophy Candidate at the Same Running Back Position for Three Consecutive Years, but after having Leonard Fournette as a Heisman Trophy Candidate in 2015 and again in 2016, LSU will have another Heisman Trophy Running Back Candidate in Guice in 2017. In High School, Fournette and Guice were theBest Players” on the Football Field in Every Single Game, that they Played-In and Obviously they have been the “Best Player on the Football Field” in College.

After this Incredible Game, “The Guice” was Selected as The Maxwell National Player of the Week Award, to go with his SEC Offensive Player of the Week Award.

SUPER SCOUT NFL REPORT: “The Guice” will Break all of the Leonard Fournette Records and Unless he gets a Major Injury, will Follow Fournette in being a #1 Draft Choice on Day One of the Draft.

“The Guice” Ran for an Unbelievable Season-High 276-Yards and Caught One Pass for 9-Yards, giving him 285 Yards of Total Offense – 285 Yards of Total Offense

The Incredible Derrius Guice Story

One of the Most Incredible Running Back Stories in the History of College Football is the Story of LSU Running Back Derrius Guice. I saw him play as a Senior in High School for Baton Rouge Catholic and I thought that he was a Super-Freak, but I also knew that he Obviously was an LSU Fan.

Then when Guice (#5) Committed to LSU, who already had Two other Super Running Back Freaks in Freshman Super-Star Leonard Fournette of New Orleans St Augustine, Louisiana and another Potential Super-Star in Darrel Williams of Marrero John Ehret, Louisiana. I saw all Three Running Back Freaks Play in High School, but if they are all on the Same Team, only one of them could be the Starting Running Back.

Fournette was a Freshman Starter and he was Selected to the Freshman All-SEC Team. Then in 2015, as a Sophomore, Fournette was a Consensus First Team All-American, while Freshman Guice and Williams, hardly got any Playing-Time.

Then in 2016, and being Hailed as The Heisman Trophy Favorite, Fournette got Injured, giving Guice and Williams a Chance to become the Super “Go-To” Running Back and “The Guice” took Full Advantage of the Miracle and a Chance to Play.

It’s Pretty Unbelievable, that a Major College Football Team could have a Heisman Trophy Candidate at the Same Running Back Position for Three Consecutive Years, but after having Leonard Fournette as a Heisman Trophy Candidate in 2015 and again in 2016, LSU will have another Heisman Trophy Running Back Candidate in Guice in 2017. In High School, Fournette and Guice were theBest Players” on the Football Field in Every Single Game, that they Played-In and Obviously they have been the “Best Player on the Football Field” in College.

I met Fournette after his Fabulous High School Freshman Football Season in which he Rushed for an Incredible 2,500-Yards and Scored 30 Touchdowns. Also, Fournette became the First HS Freshman Football Player to be offered a Scholarship by The LSU Tigers, and he Finished his High School Career with an Amazing 7,619-Yards Rushing and 88 Touchdowns.

After Signing with LSU, Fournette became a Household Name” during his Freshman Season when he Rushed for 1,034-Yards and Scored 10 Touchdowns. Then in 2015, The Tigers started off with a 7-0 Record and they were Ranked in the Top 5 in the Country, with Fournette leading the way as their Heisman Trophy Candidate, as he Finished with 1,953-Yards Rushing23 Touchdowns, and an Incredible 162.75 Yards Per Game, in 12 Games.

Heading into the 2016 Football Season, most all of the talk was whether or not Fournette would Sit-Out to preserve himself for the 2017 NFL Draft. Unfortunately, Fournette decided to play and it was Riddled By Nagging Injuries, but an Unbelievable New Super-Star Emerged for The LSU Tigers.

And here is where one of the Most Incredible Running Back Stories in College Football Began. For the first time in the 2016 season, LSU Sophomore Super-Star Running Back Derrius Guice Showed to the College Football World who he Was and What he could do with a Football, as he was Awarded as the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week AwardGuice is the Eighth LSU Football Player since 2004 to earn this National Award, the last being Leonard Fournette in the 2015 Football Season

Then On Thanksgiving Night, in front of a National Television Audience against Texas A&M, Guice Finished his Sophomore Regular Season with a “Mind-Boggling” Game as he Set an LSU Single-Game School Rushing Record with an Incredible 285-Yards Rushing, as he Carried the Football an Amazing 37-Times, and Four Touchdowns, while Averaging 7.7-Yards Per Carry.

LSU Defeated the Aggies 54-39 in in a Very Loud and Very Partial Kyle Football Field with Guice Leading-The-Way, LSU was able to Accumulate an Unbelievable 622-Yards of Total Offense, in what Most Football Scouts and LSU Football Fans Believe is a Great Preview of the 2017 Football Season.

In the game against Texas A&M, Guice scored Touchdowns on runs of 45, 45, 6, and 1-Yard in the Win. Guice is now one of only Four Players in SEC History to have Multiple 250-Yard Games in a Single Season, joining Hall-Of-Fame Super Running Backs, Bo Jackson, Herschel Walker, and Moe Williams.

Guice Averaged 9.0-Yards Per Carry behind Fournette in the 2015 and 2016 Seasons and in 2016, he also Averaged 7.6-Yards Per Carry and 16 Touchdowns on an LSU Football Team that did not even Highlight Him as a Running Back. Guice is a Very Strong and Very Powerful Running Back and a Definite Forerunner for The Heisman Trophy Award and he will be Running Behind a Very Athletic and Very Experienced Offensive Line.

At the End of the 2016 Football Season, The New Super-Star, Derrius Guice wasn’t only the best Running Back on his own LSU Football Team; but he just might have been the best Running Back in the Entire Country.

OFFENSE

Quarterback

Oklahoma Super-Star Quarterback Baker “Magic” Mayfield was Incredible in a Crucial 42-35 Victory over Kansas State as he Completed 32 of 41 Passes for 410-Yards and Two Touchdowns. Mayfield also Rushed for another 69-Yards and another Two Touchdowns, giving him 479-Yards and Four Touchdowns in the Victory.

The Oklahoma Sooners have made a habit of Squandering Early-Leads for much of this season, but they went the other Direction on this Saturday night.

Oklahoma Quarterback Baker Mayfield is one of the Best Quarterbacks in the Country and he has been Pretty Sensational all Season and Versatile Running Back Rodney Anderson has also been Outstanding.

In this Game, it looked like the Sooners were going to be Upset, but both Mayfield and Super-Star All-Purpose Back Rodney Anderson were “Flat-Out” Incredible in this Crucial Big-12 Game 42-35 Victory over Kansas State in Manhattan.

Rodney Anderson ran 22-Yards for the Winning Touchdown with 7 Seconds left in the Game and Mayfield Passed for 410-Yards and Accounted for Four Touchdowns, and the #9 Team in the Country Overcame a 21-10 Halftime Deficit to beat Kansas State 42-35 and Keep their Playoff hopes Still Alive.

“Our guys at halftime had a great look in their eye. They were determined to come out and play a lot better,” Sooners Head Coach Lincoln Riley said. “But the mentality really went to another level there in the locker room at halftime. They were really ready to play.”

“As a leadership group, we took care of it and handled it,” Mayfield said. “That’s a huge win for us, considering we haven’t played well in the second half most of the season.”

This was the Sooners Nation-Leading 14th Consecutive True Road Victory, and it Extended their Run of Dominance in Manhattan. They haven’t lost to the Wildcats in their Home Stadium since 1996.

“I’m tired of coming into the locker room under such circumstances,” said Kansas State Old Friend and Head Coach Bill Snyder, whose team has lost three straight to the Sooners. “We’ve lost far too many games. You have to play complete games in this conference. One half won’t do it.”

All-American Quarterback Baker Mayfield  Completed 32 of 41 Passes for 410-Yards and Two Touchdowns and Rushed for another 69-Yards and another Two Touchdowns, giving him 479-Yards and Four Touchdowns in the Victory. – 479-Yards of Total Offense

 Related image2. Quarterback Riley Ferguson (#4) – Memphis

Super Memphis Quarterback Riley Ferguson had another Incredible Passing-Game as he Completed 33 of 53 Passes for 471-Yards and Threw a 21-Yard Winning-Touchdown Pass to Sean Dykes with 1:28 Left in the Game to Defeat The Houston Cougars in a 42-38 “Hair-Raising” and On-the-Road Victory on Thursday Night in Houston.

Ferguson Hit is Favorite Wide Receiver Anthony Miller with 10 Passes for 178-Yards and Running Back Patrick Taylor Rushed for 39-Yards on 14 Carries, but Rushed for a Career-High Four Touchdowns and Memphis Rallied to beat The Cougars.

The Tigers were Losing by 17 Points in the Second Half, but there was no panic for Ferguson and his Memphis Super-Stars as they kept their focus and finished with The Victory.

“Offensively, to go from being shutout in the first half, not playing our best ball, a lot of mistakes, everything that could probably go wrong in the first half did,” Memphis Head Coach Mike Norvell said. “But, I came into the locker room and there was something about their eyes. No panic. They came out and absolutely responded.”

Ferguson Found Dykes to Complete an Eight-Play, 80-Yard Winning Touchdown Drive that took 1:49 to give Memphis its only lead of the Game.

“We said we had to stay focused,” Ferguson said. “We knew we would be able to score as long as we didn’t hurt ourselves. We knew we had to regain our focus and stop shooting ourselves in the foot.”

Miller Caught 10 Passes for 178-YardsTony Pollard Grabbed 9 Passes for 91-Yards, and Dykes Caught 2 Passes for 41-Yards as The Tigers Finished with 501-Yards Passing and they only had 30-Yards Rushing.

“It was just ground and pound,” Taylor said about his four touchdown runs. “It was taking advantage of every opportunity that they gave me when they gave me the ball.”

Ferguson Completed 33 of 53 Passes for 471-Yards and Threw a 21-Yard Winning-Touchdown Pass. – 471-Yards of Total Offense

Related image3. Quarterback Drew Lock (#3) – Missouri

Drew Lock had another Unbelievable Game on Saturday as he Completed 23 of 33 Passes for 467-Yards and Six Touchdowns in leading The Tigers to a 68-21 Victory over The Idaho Vandals at Missouri Faurot Football Field.

In this Game, Lock fell one Touchdown Pass Short of The Missouri School Single-Game Touchdown Record that he set in the Season Opener. Lock was Selected as an College Football MVP in Game One and again in Game Eight. J’Mon Moore was also Sensational as he Caught 11 Passes for 174-Yards and a Touchdown.

In a Team Meeting on Monday, Missouri Head Coach Barry Odom Blasted the Team, because of a Disappointing First Half of the Season after their Great Opening Game. Five days later, The Tigers Started the Second Half of the Season by Torching The Idaho Defensive Secondary and Ended a Five-Game Losing Streak.

“I think the Display in the Team Meeting Room Monday was perfect,” Quarterback Lock said. “I think we’re all buying into the whole second season. Starting off 1-0 is what we needed. I think we can keep building on that. We’ve got a lot of winnable games coming up, and we just need to believe in it.”

The Game Did Not Start-Out Very Good for The Tigers (2-5) as Lock was Intercepted on the First Play, and The Vandals (2-5) proceeded to Score a Touchdown on a 7-Yard Touchdown Pass.

“There was a very Heated Discussion between our offensive coordinator and him,” Coach Odom said, referring to Coach Josh Heupel and Lock. “It would not be G-Rated.”

Lock, in his third year as The Starting Quarterback for a team that hasn’t posted a Winning Record since 2014, said he has developed thick skin.

“I’ve handled a lot of adversity since I’ve been here, so throwing a pick on the first play, I’ve been in a lot worse situations here,” Lock said.

Lock Completed 23 of 33 Passes for 467-Yards and Six Touchdowns. – 467-Yards of Total Offense

Image result for Darrin Hall Photos1. Running Back Darrin Hall (#22) – Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Junior Running Back Darrin Hall had an Unbelievable Game on Saturday as he Rushed for a Career-High 254-Yards and Three Touchdowns in Leading The Panthers to a 24-17 Victory over DukeHall Averaged an Incredible 10.6 yards on 24 carries facing a Blue Devil Defense that was Giving-Up Only a Mere 108-Yards Per Game on the Ground. Hall Recorded Two Incredible Touchdown Runs of 79-Yards and 92-Yards.

Check The 79-Yarder Out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9QYycM_esw

The Latter 92-Yard Touchdown was the Longest Touchdown Run in Pittsburgh History, eclipsing the 100-Year-Old record of a 91-Yard Touchdown Run that was Established in 1917 by George McLaren, who, incidentally Played under The Legendary Coach Pop Warner.

Hall (5-11, 220, 4.43, 36, 4.23) from Austintown Fitch, Ohio scored his Third Touchdown on a Four-Yard Touchdown Run with 10:48 left in the Fourth Quarter and it gave The Panthers the Final 21-17 lead for The Victory.

The Incredible Performance for Hall helped The Panthers Record a Season-High 336-Yards Rushing and it more than Tripled what Duke had been Giving-Up, before the Game.

Hall was a Super-Star Running Back as a Junior in High School at Austintown Fitch, Ohio when he was an All-State Running Back, leading his Fitch Team Deep into the Playoffs, but his Senior-Season was Shortened by Injury. Never-The-Less, the Injury-Filled High School Career, Hall was a Super Photo-Typical Type Running Back with Great Size, Quickness, and Agility. His Best Forty Time on Record in High School was a 4.6, but if you Watch his High School Highlights, Hall is Running a 4.5 or Better on his Long Touchdown Runs.

Hall also was on the Fitch Track Team and he Probably ran Faster in High School, but just did not run Faster for Hudl, because he was a Highly Recruited Player with Over 30 Offers.

In 2015, as a Pittsburgh True Freshman, Hall was a Reserve, but he Started one Game. Then, in 2016, Hall was a Running Back Reserve and Looking Forward to being the Featured Starter at Running Back.

SUPER SCOUT NFL REPORT: This Scouting Report Takes on an Interesting and Unusual Outlook. Darrin Hall is a “Difference-Maker” with Size, Speed, Quickness, Agility, and Power. If you Watch Hall on his Long Touchdown Runs, he is the Fastest Player on the Football Field. Hall has a 4.23 Pro-Shuttle and a 36 Vertical Jump on Record.

Most NFL Scouts do not have Darrin Hall Going in the First Round of the 2018 NFL Draft, but they may be Updating their Draft Lists after this Duke Game. Hall may or May Not Come-Back for his Senior Season.

After Hall Rushed for a Career-High 254-Yards and Three Touchdowns and Caught One Pass for Four-Yards, giving him 258-Yards of Total Offense, he was Selected as The Atlantic Coast Conference Offensive Back of The Week in Week Eight. – 258-Yards of Total Offense

Wide Receiver

Super Memphis Quarterback Riley Ferguson Hit his Favorite Wide Receiver Anthony Miller with 10 Passes for 178-Yards as Memphis Rallied to beat The Houston Cougars in a 42-38 Come-From-Behind Victory.

Miller Caught 10 Passes for 178-Yards, Tony Pollard Grabbed 9 Passes for 91-Yards and Dykes Caught 2 Passes for 41-Yards as The Tigers Finished with 501-Yards and they only had 30-Yards Rushing.

Miller Averaged 17.8-Yards Per Catch; while Pollard Averaged 10.1 Per Catch and Dykes Averaged 20.5 Per Catch. With only 30-Yards Rushing, these Receiving Stats are Unbelievable in the Huge Memphis Victory.

Image result for J'Mon Moore Photos2. Wide Receiver J’Mon Moore – Missouri

Super Missouri Wide Receiver J’Mon Moore had another Incredible Game in Teaming with Quarterback Drew Lock in a 68-21 Victory over IdahoLock and Moore were Selected as an College Football MVP in Game One and again in Game Eight. J’Mon Moore Caught 11 Passes for 174-Yards and a Touchdown. 

Moore (6-3, 205, 4.47) from Missouri City Elkins, Texas is a Senior who Caught 4 Passes in the First Game of the Season for an Incredible 187-Yards and 2 Touchdowns. He became the Starter as a Junior and he is The Only Returning Wide Receiver Returning in the SEC with 1,000-Yards Receiving.

Moore Currently has 39 Catches in 2017 for 676-Yards and 7 Touchdowns. He has 132 Career Catches for 2,071-Yards and 18 Touchdowns. I am Very Familiar with Elkins High School, because my Son, Eric, Played Football and Baseball for Elkins Middle School and in the Ninth Grade as a Freshman at Elkins High School before we moved to Hammond, Louisiana.

Moore actually Caught 11 Passes for 174-Yards, but Since I am a Little Partial to Elkins High School, I gave him an Extra Yard so he could join his Quarterback, Drew Lock, on the Week Eight MVP, after also joining Lock on the Week One MVP Report.

J’Mon Moore Caught 11 Passes for 175-Yards and a Touchdown. – 175-Yards of Total Offense

All-Purpose Back

In this Game, Sophomore Pollard (5-11, 200, 4.41, 36, 4.16) from Memphis Melrose, Tennessee Caught 9 Passes for 91-Yards and Returned 2 Kickoffs for another 115-Yards, giving him a Great 206-Yards of All-Purpose Yards. His Two Kickoffs included a 22-Yard Return and another Incredible 93-Yard Return for a Touchdown.

With 5:57 Left in the Third Quarter and The Tigers Losing by a 24-7 Score, Pollard Returned another Unbelievable Kickoff of 93-Yards for a Touchdown, making the Score 24-14. This was the Beginning of The End for The Houston Cougars in the 42-38 Victory.

Pollard Caught 9 Passes for 91-Yards and 2 Kickoffs for 115-Yards, giving him a Great 206-Yards of All-Purpose Yards. – 206-Yards of Total Offense

Image result for Rodney Anderson Photos2. All-Purpose Rodney Anderson (#24) – Oklahoma

There were a Few Games on Saturday that I had Marked as Key Games and that I wanted to Watch. The Oklahoma and Kansas State Game was one of the Crucial and Key Games in the Big-12 and I Definitely wanted to watch this Game on Television.

Oklahoma is Loaded with Unbelievably Talented Players, but Kansas State has also been Playing Great and they also had some Talented Players and the Game was going to be Played in Manhattan on the Kansas State Home Field.

Oklahoma Quarterback Baker Mayfield is one of the Best Quarterbacks in the Country and he has been Pretty Sensational all Season and Versatile Running Back Rodney Anderson has also been Outstanding.

In this Game, it looked like the Sooners were going to be Upset, but both Mayfield and Super-Star All-Purpose Back Rodney Anderson were “Flat-Out” Incredible in this Crucial Big-12 Game 42-35 Victory over Kansas State in Manhattan.

Rodney Anderson ran 22-Yards for the Winning Touchdown with 7 Seconds left in the Game and Mayfield Passed for 410-Yards and Accounted for Four Touchdowns, and the #9 Team in the Country Overcame a 21-10 Halftime Deficit to beat Kansas State 42-35 and Keep their Playoff hopes Still Alive.

After leading the Big 12 with its 5.4-Yards Per Carry in 2016, the Oklahoma Offense was going to have to replace their Running Backs with the Departures of Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon to The NFL. One of the Main Candidates in 2017 would be Red-Shirt Sophomore Rodney Anderson.

Anderson (6-1, 218, 4.41, 38) from Katy High School, Texas is Unbelievably Strong and Fast, but he had missed Virtually all of his First Two Seasons in Norman. As a Freshman in 2015, Anderson Sustained a leg injury on kickoff coverage at Tennessee in the Second Game of the Season, sidelining him for the rest of the year.

Anderson Recorded 147-Yards Rushing and a Touchdown, Caught Four Passes for 36-Yards and another Touchdown. and Returned 3 Kickoffs for 17-Yards, giving him 200-Yards of Total Offense and Two Touchdowns. – 200-Yards of Total Offense

Tight End

Image result for Christopher herndon Photos1. Tight End Chris Herndon (#23) – Miami

Super Miami Tight End Chris Herndon had a Breakout Game in the 27-19 Victory over The Syracuse Orangemen.

In this Breakout Game, Herndon (6-4, 254, 4.64) from Norcross, Georgia Caught a Career-High 10 Passes and also Totaled a Career-Best 96-Yards and Scored One Touchdown in the Victory over Syracuse. Herndon Improved on his Previous Career high of Eight Catches set earlier this year against Toledo, and he had already set a Career Best for Receiving Yards at the End of the First Half on Saturday.

One Thing that you must Consider in Talking about Tight Ends is that they are Never the Used as the Primary Receiver and when a Tight End Catches 10 Passes in one Game, it has got to be Considered an Extraordinary Accomplishment and Feat.

Herndon was a Fringe Receiving Option for Miami in 2016 last season and he Frequently played in a Double Tight End Offense, sharing the Tight End Set with NFL #1 Draft Choice David Njoku. Herndon still however, Caught 28 Passes for 334-Yards and Two Touchdowns, and with a First Down or 11.9-Yards Per Catch Average.

Although Herndon was Fourth on The Miami Team in Pass Receptions, Receiving Yards and touchdowns last Season, he was one of the Best-Looking Tight Ends Coming-Back for the 2017 Season and he has a Great Chance to be a High Draft Choice in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Herndon was also Selected on the Pre-Season John Mackey Award Watch List as the #1 Tight End in the Country. The Last Hurricane to Win The John Mackey  Award was Kellen Winslow in 2003. – 96-Yards of Offense 

Offensive Guard

Georgia Tech Right Offensive Guard Shamire Devine had an Incredible and Powerful Performance against Wake Forest and was recognized by the ACC, as he was Selected as The ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week as they Defeated Wake Forest in a 38-24 Come-From-Behind Victory. Devine is the Fifth Georgia Tech Player to be Selected this Season and the Third Offensive Lineman.

On that Play, Devine leveled The Demons Deacons Defensive Tackle, Paris Block, with a Clearing Trap Block to Clear Benson for the Touchdown.

The Rambling Wreck ran for 427-Yards and it was their Fourth 400-Yard Rushing Game of the Season and The First for The Georgia Tech Head Coach Paul Johnson.

It also is the First Time that Senior Devine has been named an ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week. Devine joins his Offensive Lineman Teammates in The Rambling Wreck Offensive Line Box, including Left Guard Parker Braun and Center Kenny Cooper, in earning ACC Player of the Week Honors. Quarterback TaQuon Marshall and Free Safety A.J. Gray have also Received the ACC Honor and Gray was on my MVP’s in Week Seven. – 10 Knock-Down Blocks, 2 100-Yard Rushers, and 427-Yards Rushing

After starting the season off slowly, due to the Shoulder Injury, Key has slowly worked himself back into shape, and also Losing around 20 Pounds in the Process over the last Five Weeks.

The hard work, by Key, Really Paid-Off when he became his “Old Super Edge-Rusher Self” in the Auburn Game when he Recorded his First Quarterback Sack on the Last Auburn Tigers Play from Scrimmage. At that Point, all of the LSU Fans and NFL Scouts started Jumping for Joy, because “The Key” was back.

The LSU Tigers will need both “The Guice” and “The Key” to have Big Games Again on November 4 when The #22 Tigers (6-2, 3-1) return to action Against The #1 Ranked Alabama Crimson Tide (8-0, 5-0) in Tuscaloosa.

SUPER SCOUT NFL REPORT: The NFL has gone to a Passing League and a “Rush-End” or “Edge-Rusher” Like Arden Key are in a More Higher Demand, for some NFL Teams, than a Franchise Quarterback or Running Back, because Rushing the Passer is one of the Most Important Tools for some NFL Defenses. Key is Probably the #1 Rush End in the 2018 Draft and he is a Sensational Quarterback-Hunter.

In Comparing Arden Key to the Last Two #1 Edge-Rushers, Jadeveon Clowney and Myles Garrett, Key is more Versatile than either Clowney or Myles. Key may not be as Fast as Clowney or as Strong as Garrett, but he is Phenomenal at using his Great Speed for a 6-6 and 255 Edge-Rusher, with Long-Arms, and in Getting Up-Field and Making the TackleKey also has Unbelievable Agility and Athleticism, allowing him to get to the Quarterback.

Key has the Potential to Rate as High as Highly Rated #1 Edge Rushers, Clowney and Garrett and Could Become the #1 Selection in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Key Recorded a Season-High Six Tackles, including Five Solo Tackles, Two Quarterback Sacks and One Forced Fumble. – 6 Tackles, 5 Solo Tackles, 2 Sacks, and 1 Forced Fumble

About maxemfingerrecruiting

My mission and goal is to search for that hidden high school football talent that has not been found yet. I then evaluate him and try to help him to get some publicity. In 2003, 2004, 2005. and 2006, I hosted my Annual 7on7 National Championship. My goal was to get great athletes to one area where I could evaluate them and then help them with college coaches. The only drawback was that college coaches wanted to see the hidden gems in a game-type highlight film and so the college coaches suggested to me that I host a real All-American Bowl Game so that they could view these talented players in a highlight film, playing against other talented players. It's noted that the NCAA doesn't allow the college coaches to attend All-American Games or practices and so the Game Film is a great tool for the college coaches. In 2005, I hosted my 1st Annual All-American Bowl Game. In nine games in nine years, my wife and I have helped 549 HS football players to get a scholarship that came to our first Bowl Game practice without a single scholarship offer. This also does not count over 1,000 players who we have helped that did not play in our game, including over 100 players in the 2010 Recruiting Season. My Super Elite Top Gun Camp idealogy, is of course, to get as many Top Football Players to a Top Gun Camp so that all of my coaches and I can evaluate them, rate them, rank them, and promote them. There will always be "Diamonds in the Rough" to be found. My First Annual Max Emfinger's Super Elite Top Gun Camp was in July of 2010. The Camp was amazing and loaded with unknown and known talent. Many of them were invited to play in our 2011 All-American Bowl Game Classic. In 2007, in my 3rd Annual All-American Bowl Game, a player by the name of Kareem Jackson came to our first Monday practice, without a single scholarship offer. Jackson decided to come out early and he became a #1 Draft Choice in the 2010 NFL Draft for the Houston Texans.
