Allan Hancock LB still hoping to find a home

According to his head coach, Allan Hancock LB Brennan Locker (6-2, 225), was one of the best linebackers in southern California last year and over the past two seasons he's put up the numbers to support that high praise. spoke with Bulldogs head coach Kris Dutra recently as well as Locker and they updated us on where things stand...

"If he had been able to be done in December he would have been gone by now because there were a few schools interested in him, but they wanted him in for spring football," Dutra told earlier this week. "He's a really instinctive player and I felt he was the best linebacker in our league the past two years. He's strong and he's smart and I think he deserves the chance to play football at the next level, someone just have to give him the chance."

Locker graduated in 2006 from Reno High School in Nevada and figured he would just begin working following his prep career.

However, Locker moved to southern California to live with his father and decided to pick up the game he loved again.

"Hancock was close to home and after I met with coach Dutra it was just what I was looking for so I came here and I've been really happy here," Locker told in November.

As a freshman in 2008, after not seeing football action for over two years, Locker put up solid numbers finishing second on the team with 56 tackles from his strongside linebacker position.

This past season, Locker doubled his tackle total, posting 112 tackles, three sacks and four interceptions while playing mostly in the middle, but also rotating outside as well.

"I'm instinctive and I always study and feel like I can make plays against the run or against the pass," Locker said. "One thing I really worked on this past summer was my strength and my conditioning so that I could go all-out the whole game and I think that's what really helped me this year."

Locker is on pace to finish his AA in May and he and Dutra are both hopeful someone will give him a look once they go through spring football.

Wherever he ends up, Locker will have three years to play two once he arrives.
