Garden State Trio Have Duke Interest

Timber Creek High School had two talented players in the Class of 2009 in Eric Loper and Ed Roberts, however according to Head Coach Robert Hinson, it looks like the 2010 class could be just as good or even better. Here is a look at some of the accomplishments of three of his players and what he has to say about them.

Wayne Carter, Bill Bilo and Nahjee Gibson will be three names to watch out of Erial, N.J., next season for Timber Creek High School. All three of these prospects have already been receiving interest from programs around the nation and they also had very productive seasons as juniors.

Nahjee Gibson, RB/DB 5-foot-11, 190 pounds (4.51)

Gibson has carried the ball 151 times for 1060 yards and 10 touchdowns this season and also has 12 catches for 125 yards. He scored four two-point conversions as well. He has been receiving mail from Tennessee, West Virginia, Connecticut, Iowa and Michigan State and is being recruited as an athlete according to his coach. Hinson referred to him as "a physical specimen who possesses great vision, burst and speed that will play both defensive back and running back for us as a senior".

Wayne Carter, OG/DT 6-foot-2, 305 pounds (5.4)

Carter graded out at 92-percent on the season and only allowed one sack. He had 18 pancake blocks as well. Coach Higgins describes him as "very explosive and athletic for his size that will be a devastating two-way lineman for us". He has gotten mail from Tennessee, West Virginia, Connecticut, Temple, Notre Dame, Duke and Michigan State already and attended Rutgers game against Fresno State. Coach Hinson thinks he could end up on either side of the ball at the collegiate level.

Bill Bilo, OG/DT 6-foot-3, 280 pounds (5.3)

Bilo graded out at 90-percent on the season and also only allowed one sack while registering 13 pancake blocks. Coach Hinson says, "Billy is a very strong kid and I am expecting him to dominate the line of scrimmage. He makes great contact and plays low. He was 24 and 7 last year as a varsity heavyweight wrestler." Right now he is getting mail from Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Connecticut, Duke, Notre Dame and Michigan State and also attended the contest between Rutgers and Fresno State. He will be recruited on the offensive line and was named the most outstanding offensive lineman at Villanova camp this past summer.
