1.D.J. Leatimua 6-2 235 Fountain-Fort Carson
This young man is a football player who can make plays. He is not the fastest but he always seems to get where he needs to be.
2.Max McDonald 6-2 210 Rocky Mountain
Due to his ability to line up in multiple spots I originally had McDonald listed with the outside backers. McDonald is stout against the run, a sure tackler and able to cover.
3.Luke Miller 6-2 215 Fairview
Very instinctive inside backer who reads well and can finish when he gets to the ball carrier.
4.Jerrell Nettles 5-11 240 Montbello
Nettles is a load and one of the most physical players in the state of Colorado. If he was an inch or two taller schools would be lining up.
5.Josh Odom 5-10 205 Pine Creek
Of the players on the list, Odom gets downhill fastest. Odom is a good athlete and is also very comfortable in coverage.
6.Phillip Burbernak 5-11 200 Monarch
Love this player! Plays with great pad level, has a motor and tackles with attitude.
7.Tyler Davis 6-0 205 Standley Lake
Downhill backer that finds the ball and has the ability to finish
8.Cole Greff 6-3 215 Golden
Greff is also a very good basketball player, this is a long athlete with a big frame.
9.Tanner Minch 6-0 200 Highlands Ranch
Old school plugger that cleans up the A and B gaps.
10.Tyler Hunt 6-1 205 Vista Ridge
Hunt is very good at getting downhill, shedding blockers and making plays.
