Colorado's Top Inside Backers

Talented group of inside backers will patrol Colorado's fields this upcoming season.

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.
