Scouting Report...Naples was home to one of the state's best backs a few years ago named Duane Coleman, who now plays at Clemson. He didn't get all the media attention as some other backs that year and the same is the case with Eugene this year. He's the real deal, like Coleman was. I watched Eugene play a couple times last year, including in the state title game. All he needs is a small crack and the next thing you know, he's five yards downfield. He has the ability to make people miss, change direction, and then run away from defenders. He had over 2,000 yards as a junior last season after suffering a knee injury as a sophomore. He's a great athlete who also participates in track (35+ on the triple jump and sub 11.2 in the 100m). Naples coach Bill Kramer will be the first to tell you how tough and competitive Eugene is.
