ScoutTV: Nashville Area Players

In this ScoutTV presentation you will see video of the top players from the Nashville area, including players from Brentwood High School, Pope John Paul II High School, Goodpasture Christian High School and Franklin High School.


Golden Tate (pictured) is a 5-11, 185-pound wide receiver and return specialist who plays for Pope John Paul II High School in Hendersonville, Tennessee. Golden, as his video proves, has incredible speed and quickness. He also has a knack for making the clutch plays. In this video you will see why he will be rated one of the top wide receivers in the nation when the rankings have been completed. Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Vanderbilt have offered scholarships, but they won't be the last to offer.

Golden will be attending the Scout.com All-American combine at Louisville, Kentucky on May 20th.


Mark Fisher (6-4, 280) is a defensive end/right offensive guard from Goodpasture Christian High School in Madison, Tennessee. Schools are recruiting Mark as a defensive end, but, based on what I've seen on his video, he could be a very good offensive lineman on the next level. In these two videos you get to see Mark's quickness and speed as a DE and his quickness and aggressiveness as an offensive guard. As of now, he has one offer, Mississippi State, but his coach feels several other SEC schools are close to offering.

Mark will be attending the Scout.com All-American combine at Tuscaloosa, Alabama on April 29th.


Courtney Coffee (5-11, 220) plays defensive end and running back for Pope John Paul II High School. Of all the high school players I saw while in Nashville last week, he was the one who was the most physically impressive. He plays DE/TB on the high school level, but he projects as a linebacker or fullback on the next level. Although he has no offers at this point, his coach, Jeff Brothers, feels that schools will like what they see from Courtney when they see him in action his senior season.

Courtney will be attending the Scout.com All-American combine at Louisville, Kentucky on May 20th.


Jaron Norfleet (6-3, 227), who plays for Brentwood (TN) High School, has the speed and quickness to play linebacker on the next level. And if he continues to gain weight he could even play defensive end, the position he currently plays for Brentwood. Although he has no offers at this point, several schools are showing serious interest in him. He has recently attended Junior Days at Vanderbilt and Auburn and has plans on attending the Junior Day at Mississippi State March 25th.

Jaron will be attending the Scout.com All-American combine at Louisville, Kentucky on May 20th.


Franklin (TN) High School wide receiver Todd Campbell (6-0, 190) has exceptional speed and very good quickness. I would venture to guess that Todd is one of the top 2 or 3 wide receivers in the state of Tennessee this year. And his seven offers from such schools as Alabama, Mississippi State, Kansas State, Tennessee, Kentucky, South Carolina and Vanderbilt prove that.

Todd will be attending the Scout.com All-American combine at Louisville, Kentucky on May 20th.
