Eugene Germany (Oct. 18 official visit, USC Nike stats: 6-3 1/2, 248 lbs…. 4.65 in the 40, 2.3 GPA) had a typical night, according to his coach, John Caparo. His 15 tackles, one forced fumble, and multiple forced hurries were business as usual. Germany had more praise for his defensive teammates after Pomona beat Northview for the Valle Vista League Championship. "Our defense won that game," Germany said. "It was a hard game but we came through. In the fouth quarter we hogged it down on their last drive and kept them out."

On offense Germany came out in the wide receiver spot and had one catch for 55 yards. The big guy looked like a smaller, fleeter wideout as he zipped past the Viking defensive back. "Iu don't know how I got by him, I guess he didn't think I could," he said. "I thought I was going to take it to the house but he clipped my ankle."

On the recruiting front Germany has USC and Michigan on top. "But Michigan is number one right now," he said. "Last time coach English called we talked about when me and Keston (Cheathem) were going to commit. We're both going to the CaliFlorida All-Star game and if Michigan goes to the Rose Bowl we'll get to go to that too. I'm not going to commit right now because I want to take my other visits. I'm going to Miami on December 13 after my ACT. Then I'll go to LSU or USC." There is another. "Oregon State, watch out," Germnay said. "They have a great family-like atmosphere up there and I liked it." Germany visited Oregon State on October 31 and has them in his top five.

Germany said the USC coaches were talking about Michigan. "They keep telling me to stay hone how cold it is in Michigan, but I'm not worried about it." There were internet rumors that USC had rescinded their scholarship offer. Both Germany and Caparo said that wasn't true. "USC calls me every Monday night," Germany said.

He also said he's getting it done in the classroom. "I have a lot of 'B's' and one 'A'," Germany said. "I take my ACT again right before I go to Miami in December."

Germany's 250 pounds is his natural weight. Coach John Brown said, "Once he gets to a good weight training program he is going to get huge. He'll definitely play on the line and with his speed he'll be scary." Germany said he lifts on weekends and a little bit during the week.

Brown also had some encouraging news for Michigan fans. "I pretty sure he's going to go to Michigan." Coach Caparo echoed those sentiments, "He wants to wait until January 2 at the All-Star game, but he'll pick Michigan."

It is impressive watching Germany. He has great acceleration for a person his size. As stated earlier, on Germany's long reeption the Northview defensive back was caught off guard and Germany flew right by. The big man caught the ball five yards beyond the coverage and only a desperation dive by the defender saved a touchdown. He always seems to find the ball and moves so smooth it looks effortless. One area Germany needs work his is aggressiveness. It will truly be something when he does get into a regimented weight training program. This is the first year he has even lifted weights. There are times when he could deliver a final hit but holds off. Off the field Germany is a gentle giant and pleasant to talk to.

Pomona is 6-3-1 for the season and is the top-seed heading into CIF-Southern Section playoffs. Pomona was a semi-finalist last seasin. Germany has over 120 tackles on the season.
