You know what they say about stats... stats lie. While watching Louis Ellis and his Lanier team take on Pontotoc last year, I counted just two tackles from the big defensive tackle. One of those was on special teams.

Big deal, right?

Well, the stats do not begin to describe the force that Ellis is in the middle of the field.

Pontotoc ran most of their offense from a shot gun formation, a defensive tackle's nightmare. Ellis spent most of the entire night flushing the quarterback out of his comfort zone and forcing him to either throw before he was ready or on the run.

Ellis shows excellent quickness and agility for a player of his size. He even kicks off and covers his kicks as seen in the video.

So when you check out Scout.com Video on Louis Ellis, you're not going to see him make 15 tackles. What you are going to see is an agile big man chasing a much smaller Pontotoc quarterback from sideline to sideline. Very impressive for a player of his size.

#92 DT Louis Ellis
