IT SOUNDS ALMOST UNBELIEVABLE, BUT
Lecounte had over 20 offers before his freshman
year was over. With Liberty County’s Raekwon McMillan high-profile recruitment in the 2014 cycle, perhaps Lecounte benefitted from all the
scouts rolling through Hinesville. He would have eventually been discovered regardless. The 6-foot- 1, 170-pound rising sophomore projects to be
a safety in college. At this point though, he could end up as a corner or
linebacker. With the early attention comes higher expectations. Lecounte
should be able to handle both.
ALREADY A SOLID 6-FOOT- 3, 230 POUNDS, LA-
mar looks the part. You can tell that by the photographs. He also acts the part, too. That’s easy to tell after watching him
play on Fridays. Alabama offers to linebackers aren’t to be taken lightly.
Lamar earned one of those by the end of his sophomore season. With two
years left to progress physically and further learn the position, not even
the sky is the limit for Lamar.
LOOKING FOR A VERSATILE DEFENSIVE THREAT?
Head to Suwanee and find Fox at Collins Hill. That’s
what college recruiters did this spring. The 6-foot- 3, 205-pound standout
has the frame to excel in many different roles and schemes. He could be a
pass-rushing defensive end or a stand-up inside linebacker. Regardless of
where he lines up, the talent is obvious. Already with offers stretching from
Tennessee to Wisconsin, look for Fox to make plays for many years to come.
SAVANNAH CO. DAY
ROBERTSON’S TALENTS ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD
are on track to take him very far. Heck, he’s already
been to the West Coast. The Savannah Country Day athlete took visits to
Southern Cal, Stanford and UCLA this summer, a list of schools that proves
the 6-foot- 1, 180-pound Robertson could end up virtually anywhere when
it comes time to deciding where he’ll play college. His recruiting is just getting started. Don’t expect the big boys in the SEC to let Robertson leave
the South without a fight.
GIBBS HAS PLENTY GOING IN HIS FAVOR. HE’S
already 6-foot- 2 and 190 pounds as a rising sophomore, has tons of talent and plays for an elite program. Aquinas took the
state title in 2013 and should be in the hunt the next couple seasons
thanks to players like Gibbs. He’s most likely destined for the wide receiver position in college, but Gibbs is one of those special do-it-all players
on Friday Nights.
PLAYERS FROM WARNER ROBINS KNOW WHAT
football is all about. They also know about perspective and what it takes to be successful. One of the best programs in the
state’s history, Callaway has seen and heard plenty about those that came
before him. Maybe that’s why he’s so serious about football, so focused
on accomplishing his goals. He wants to win at Warner Robins (the only
accepted way in and around that area). And he wants to play football at
the highest level possible in college. At 6-foot- 3, 170 pounds, Callaway is
well on his way to accomplishing both goals.
SINGLETON LOOKS LIKE A CORNERBACK. JUST
does. He’s 5-foot- 11, 180 pounds and just looks like
a guy ready to shut down opposing wide receivers. Playing for a relatively
new school in Archer, Singleton helped the Tigers to an 11-1 record in
2013. With still two years to grow and get better, Singleton and Archer
both should continue pushing to new heights in the coming seasons.
GREATER ATL. CHRISTIAN
THE RISING SOPHOMORE HAS YET TO START A
game at the high school level, but that will change
soon. Mills’ talent is undeniable and his body is catching up to those
older than him, listed at 6-1, 175-pounds this spring. He’ll still have
to battle for the starting gig this season, but Mills has a big arm, is
accurate and most importantly — he’s smart. Watch for Mills to earn
playing time this season. His recruiting will soon pick up, too.
