Scout.com evaluation: Truth be known if it were not for Colton Skidmore you might have never seen the Chargers in a championship game, much less the last three. Colton took over the starting role at center his ninth grade season and has been the glue for Oxford's offense ever since.

What makes him so special are his intangibles that can't be measured. Yes, he's only 6-foot-1. No, he doesn't put up good numbers in the 40-yard dash during the combines. But what you can't measure is his heart, determination, pure strength, toughness, leadership and intelligence.

Once Colton gets his hands on you it's over. You can't get past him. He excels in small spaces where it's the toughest man wins. Where he doesn't win is out in space. That is why center is the perfect position for him.
