With playermakers like Austin Conway and Josh Wright it is tough to stand out on the Overland O, but junior receiver Sam Warren manages fine. An athletic 6-1, Warren has the speed to separate and the ability to catch in traffic. Potentially most impressive is his work as a blocker downfield creating big play opportunities for Wright and Conway. Wyoming is showing interest in this intriguing receiver.
Watched film of Doherty junior TeQuan Bower. He is strong in the legs, yet has the ability to make people miss in the hole. I especially like his feet and lateral movement. He currently is averaging 170 rush yards a game.
Another impressive junior that has popped on film is Heritage receiver Tim Pless. Standing 6-3, Pless has very good size and length. Further, Pless looks to have the whole package. He is a hands catcher and has already made circus grabs this year. Also, he has good speed and most impressive, especially for a young receiver, Pless runs tight routes. Really like this young man.
A specimen from the Colorado class of 2017, a class that is shaping up as very solid, is Chatfield athlete Dalton Keene. Standing 6-4, the big kid catches your eye. So far this season, playing inside backer, Keene has registered 47 tackles. He is a little raw, but the athleticism is there and he has the frame to become a very big player.
Fountain-Fort Carson is linebacker high with seniors D.J. Leatimua and Drue Harris holding college offers. Leatimua has a Weber State offer while Harris, a very impressive athlete, holds offers from Air Force, Northern Colorado, Colorado State and Wyoming. As good as these two are, 6-0 215 pound junior Elijah Toilolo is making plays.
Not an underclassmen, but a first year starter, Valor senior offensive guard Davis Clay is worth a look. He is not overly athletic, but at 6-5 290 pounds, Clay has the potential and size to be an inside mauler at the next level. Last week Clay held his own against a good Chandler, Arizona defensive line.
