Flynn Has Hands, Size, and Speed

One of the best wideouts in JC football this year is one that has been pretty much overlooked until very recently. L.A. Harbor WR Kyle Flynn (6-2, 205) has a big body and the speed to get deep.

He put up big stats his first year for the Seahawks and so far this year he's shown his first year wasn't a fluke.

"I'm big and I can run a 4.4 so I can get deep too," Flynn told JCFootball.com.  "I take pride in my blocking as well.  One thing I worked on this past summer was my weight.  Last year I played at like 175 so during the winter I really worked out hard and added something like 40 pounds and reported during spring at 215 pounds.

"I dropped about 10 of it so I could feel lighter and it's just so much better now.  I'm stronger and I feel confident in going across the middle now.  That was something I didn't really feel confident in doing last year, but this year, there's no worries."

As a senior at South Torrance High School in Torrance, California, Flynn received an offer from the Arizona State Sun Devils, but he failed to receive a passing score on the SAT.  So he headed to L.A. Harbor to play with older brother Sean who is now a member of the San Jose State Spartans.

"I thought it would be cool to come down and play with Sean so that's what I did," Flynn said.  "We had fun last year.  I caught 20 passes for 401 yards and three touchdowns, but I was expecting to get more.  This year that hasn't been a problem."

So far in 2006, through five games, Flynn has caught 26 passes for over 400 yards and three touchdowns. 

"With me on one side and Deryn Bowser on the other side, teams don't have a chance against us," Flynn said confidently.  "We work really well together.  If they double Deryn, then I can beat them.  If they double me, Deryn will make them pay.  It works out really well."

With his academic troubles behind him, Flynn has been noticed by several schools and has even garnered two offers.

"San Jose State and Troy have both offered," Flynn said.  "Washington and Oregon have been talking to my coaches a lot and we've sent them some film so we'll see what happens with that.

"I'm visiting San Jose State for the Fresno State game (12/2) and then I'm going to wait and see what I hear from some of the Pac 10 schools," Flynn said.  "I'm going to hold off on visiting Troy for a while and see what else comes up."

Flynn will graduate in December and will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
