Corner on D, and he's getting time at receiver too and he's outperforming a senior at that too so he may get both... I'm a much bigger fan of defense though, and it's what I coached, so I really want to see him out there laying kids out. He's a monster hitter.
Last year was his first JV year, and the local juvie school is in his division, and at the JV game against that school they were beating up on our kids pretty good... We'd won the varsity game Friday, and their JV team were just pummeling ours.
Anyway, their JV QB was bigger than me, and this kid breaks out right on a keeper, and he completely beats the DE and outside LB on my gf's kid's side at corner.
So the QB has a receiver out trying to block him, and my kid just nails him puts him on his ass. He stepped up on the QB then who is now out to where he had beat the blocker, and the QB leaps because my kid breaks down a little early sometimes for his tackles. But this time he breaks out of his tackle really quickly, wraps their QB at the back of his thighs just above his knees, and dumps him right over his shoulder head first into the grass.
Their QB, to his credit, got right up and he didn't lose control of the ball at all... People were just cringing on both sides of the field.
My kid got mother f'd by some of their line for doing that to their QB, but I guess the QB congratulated him. He's always been a monster on defense even though he's not always had the size people expect for big hits. His technique is flawless though, and I got him to hit the weight room religiously so even though he's not a huge kid, he's solid muscle and can make every hit just pure punishment.
They're pushing him to gain 20 lbs. so they can move him up to one of the linebacker spots because they lost a lot of seniors there from last year, and the kids filling it this year aren't anywhere near the quality they lost. Their tackling is so-so at best.
There's a lot of good QB's and receivers they'll face this year though, kids they know are coming up in other districts they play that have already gained experience at the varsity level, so they're really trying to beef up against the pass because it was their achilles heel last year.
I've got two years of this left basically. My gf's youngest won't play anymore, he's just not into it and I'm not forcing him. So I've got two years left to enjoy.
