Happy Fourth of July 806! Since this holiday is about patriotism and fireworks, let's take a look at ten. players in the 806 that are going to light it up on the field and against their opponents this season! Football is inching closer, ladies and gentlemen!
1. BRENEN THOMPSON- SPEARMAN LYNX: C/O 2022 ATH
Brenen had over 2,000 total yards and 25 touchdowns last season and is nearing a mega decision on where he will commit to college as he has narrowed his schools of interest down from 37 to 6! Thompson is scary on both sides of the ball and untouchable in space. This young man is going to light it up this fall for the Lynx and on the next couple of levels as well; consider us blessed to get to check him out!
2. MAJOR EVERHART- TASCOSA REBELS: C/O 2022 TB/FS
Major is just that: Major! he also will be a 2022 commit and has a plethora of teams including Penn State, Texas, Texas Tech and a host of others to choose from. Everhart did a lot of work on both sides of the ball last season and really will be counted on to do some more major things this fall for Coach Plunk. He may get close to 1,000 yards on the ground and have a few interceptions as well this fall; a huge season is coming for Major and the Rebels.
3. KOBIE MCKINZIE- LUBBOCK-COOPER PIRATES: C/O 2022 OLB
The number two ranked linebacker in the nation is gearing up for his final run with the Pirates on Woodrow road and from the looks of things, he is going to have an explosive season! McKinzie is a field disruptor when he is locked in and won't be blocked by one player on any play. He is also fast enough to cover any tailback coming out of the backfield or tight end as well. Kobie will anchor another championship run for the Pirates this season before he heads off to BOOMER SOONER!
4. MARC RAMIREZ- WELLINGTON SKYROCKETS: C/O 2022 RB/LB
Marc rushed for 2,542 yards and scored 30 times last season and had 133 tackles on the defensive side of the ball also in Wellington's State Semifinal run. He should put up those same type of numbers next year as well and Wellington is a title favorite again in 2021. Will this be the year they capitalize off of the hype and get to Jerry's World for the first time since 2013 when they won it all? Marc and the rest of his talented team will have a bunch to say about that.
5. LANDYN HACK-PANHANDLE PANTHERS: C/O 2023 QB
Landyn amassed over 2,100 total yards and 29 scores for the Panthers last season and will step into the quarterback role full time for Coach Dane Ashley this fall. Panhandle will make some noise and Hack will lead the way. He won the quarterback MVP at the 806 HSSC/Coach O showcase in June and also participated in a camp at Florida State this summer! Hack received his first offer today and more will come for the 6'4" 190 pound Quarterback; folks, he checks all the criteria to be a star!
6. JESS HOEL- ABERNATHY ANTELOPES: C/O 2022 QB
Jess Hoel is a pure dual-threat quarterback with tremendous upside. What I like about him is he doesn't mind working for what he wants: a shot at a Divison One school as a quarterback. Jess has been to multiple camps and is impressing everywhere he goes this summer but the true test will come in the season as the Antelopes will have another tough run in district and a tough first round playoff game out of the gate this season, maybe Spearman!
