Gateway HS LB Shayne Hale is regarded as one of the best football players in America. His combination of size and speed place him in that special freak athlete category.
And while being such a star can make some young men become arrogant, not Hale.
This young man is the antithesis of the word. We caught up with Hale tonight and
he had these things to say. I am currently at a Stand By Me event. It focuses
on helping problem youth and giving them guidance. Whether it involves problems
with drugs or violence, I really enjoy going in to the community and helping kids.
It is one of the great benefits of being a football player. I can speak to young
people since they look up to me and make positive impacts in their lives.
The humble Hale has scholarship offers from coast to coast. He is a bona fide
5-star talent. And he has recently narrowed it down to a top 10. Coach Smith
and I have been sitting down and discussing schools and we thought it was best
to narrow it to 10 at this time. I am just looking for the best fit in a program.
I want to find a place where I feel the strongest connection to the coaching staff.
Hale has yet to take any unofficial visits, but those plans are in the way. There
are some schools we have been discussing taking trips to. We think we will go
out to Florida and Alabama. We also want to stop by Rutgers this summer.
