A Sleeper No-More

With more and more eyes on high school football players all around the country, it's getting harder to find a true "sleeper", but running back Zeke Rozier of Bleckley County High School in Georgia fit the bill until some huge performances in the playoffs helped put him on the map.

The coaches at Bleckley County always knew what they had, but it took some time for the rest of us to catch on. Zeke Rozier started piling up huge yards in the playoffs, helping the Royals reach the quarterfinals of the State Playoffs this year.

Rozier's signature game may have been the second round match up with Savannah Christian in which he ran for 296 yards and four touchdowns.

Bleckley County was ousted by Lovett in a game attended by ScoutTV*, but the Lions weren't able to keep Rozier completely under wraps. Rozier managed 126 tough yards on 26 carries, and he added a touchdown reception.

Rozier lines up at fullback in the Royal's wing offense, so he doesn't get a lot of chances to build up a head of steam as he's headed towards the line of scrimmage the way a tailback would. But it still isn't hard to picture him in that role and running down hill. He runs with a lot of strength and has good hands out of the backfield.
