SNEAK PEEK: GARY WEST SIDE COUGARS

Lets take a look at this exciting West Side team and its prospects

I had a chance to catch this team up close and personal Friday Night. What a job that coach Jason Johnson has done at West Side. The Cougars lost a nail biter to East Chicago Central 46-44. This offensive dynamo put up numbers in bunches all year.

Explosive receiver Lonnie Johnson, an Ohio State commit has all the tools to be a standout in Columbus. He played both receiver and free safety for the Cougars.

The best Cougar on Friday was senior receiver JonVea Johnson. The speedy Johnson has a field day with over 300 yards receiving and 4 touchdowns for "The Side". Some of the Big Ten Schools need to wake up and get involved. JonVea Johnson should be a national recruit.

Junior QB Ramone Atkins was again solid throwing for over 400 yards and 5 touchdowns. He threw for 49 touchdowns on the season. He will surely be on the recruiters radar for next season.

The Cougars have plenty of other good college prospects as well. OL Preston Sale Smith is a top junior tackle.
