2012 Indian Land RB/ATH Rondreas Truesdale got his senior season off to a great start in more ways than one. Entering the game Truesdale was on the radar of a number of regional schools but after the game was over and word got out of his performance he
"I had 23 carries for 251 yards and scored 2 touchdowns. We won 23-13 over Buford."
"I also got my first offer from Army this week. Coach Tony Coaxum offered me."
Truesdale says that the Black Knights are offering him as a slot back and he likes the approach that Coaxum and the service academy are taking with him concerning his recruitment.
"What I like about them is that they are being honest and I love that about anyone on any subject, no sugar coating. They tell me what I need to hear and not what I want to hear. I am doing my research on West Point's history. I mean people talk about them but I'm doing my own research on top of that."
Securing his first offer Truesdale told us about where his recruitment stands currently.
"It's pretty much the same schools I said before. Just not as much, its all slowing down a little I guess. So I just gotta keep grinding in the classroom and on the field."
Truesdale says there weren't any college coaches that he knows of at the game against Buford but he says some of his recruiters have said that they will be attending some in the near future to evaluate him in person. Friday's game saw him play multiple positions and he talked about where he started at and finished the evening.
"It was a mix between both quarterback and running back. I started at quarterback, but after we get a lead I worked my way back to running back. I had like two series at running back though."
The 2012 prospect and Indian Land emerged with a victory but more importantly he earned that often elusive first scholarship offer. It left a good feeling in his heart and he's determined to continue to play well to see what others may join the Army Black Knights as the season progresses.
