Rogers Puts On Show In Spring Scrimmage

He has only played football for three years but George Rogers does things that he can't describe on the football field, but Northeastern Oklahoma A&M Junior College's coaches know they love what they see. Call it natural movements, but Rogers is showing he can get off blocks and make big plays as he had no fewer than three sacks in the Norsemen's spring scrimmage Tuesday in Miami, Okla.

Rogers is 6-3 and is now down now 305 pounds after a furious offseason of conditioning under strength coach Zach Crissup Rogers combines a big strong frame with explosive quickness as he was timed at 4 98 in the forty

Among the schools that saw Rogers display in the spring scrimmage were Minnesota, Arkansas, Memphis, Northern Illinois, and Texas-San Antonio

A long list of schools has been in during the spring, including Oklahoma State defensive coordinator Bill Young Young was at NEO for one of the best practices of the spring and saw Rogers, who is from Stillwater, put on a similar performance to the one he had in the spring scrimmage NEO coaches are working with Rogers on his technique and it has improved dramatically

A standout at Stillwater High School, Rogers had 15 reps on the bench test (225 pounds), 515-pound max on the squat, and a 310-pound max on the power clean

The bonus for major colleges is that he will graduate either next May or December of 2012, and will be a 3-for-3 player if it is May or a 2-for-2 player if it is December

His next step is to improve his academics to strive for the earlier graduation This is a very talented player that is turning it on in a hurry He has made it on a lot of lists this spring
