JACOB THORNBRUE Moore Offensive Tackle 6-6, 320, 5.4 <BR><BR> After starting for perennial power Moore as a sophomore and junior, Thornbrue is already receiving interest from colleges all over the nation even before the start of his senior season. <BR><BR> "He gets letters from everybody in the country," said Moore coach Tom Noles of his standout offensive tackle.


For obvious reasons, too. Aside from being an honors student, Thornbrue is a mammoth at 6-6, 320. And he used to be bigger. He weighed in at 350 prior to his junior season before trimming down to 320. Now Thornbrue's target weight is 300. Thornbrue also handles deep-snapping chores and, according to his coach, is athletic enough to throw the football like a quarterback and catch the ball as well as some receivers.

"We're kind of thinking this will be a breakout year for Jacob," said Noles. "He can dominate people, not just block them. He's capable of just pinning people down."
