Top 2021 DB Recruit Wyatt Grisell shows tremendous growth in all aspects of his play on the football field and Is a 2021 Scout Trout All-American
How to become a better football player - Learn From Top 2021 DB Recruit Wyatt Grisell
(I could write a book on how to play DB from this footage)
As we begin to add more names to our recruit rankings, I cannot find a better example of being able to show what a college coach looks for or should be looking for in a Top 2021 FB recruit. Athletics can bring you far in this game, but there will come a point when other players with the same skill set will learn the proper technique to play the position they are in at a even higher level then before. Learning for some athletes is difficult and some can even be taught the improper techniques that I am seeing much of in our game today. Wyatt Grisell made a lot of plays on the first film I evaluated that is after his current tape from his freshmen year. I got to see a young man who was very disciplined in his technique for such a young age, as he seemed to always be in the right place at the right time to make big time interceptions for his team. I knew the mental capacity of many would not be able to handle the fact that Wyatt was going to become a Top ranked 2021 recruit, but that was my decision and I am here to tell you how young men like Wyatt Grisell make top flight defensive backs at the next level.
Top 2021 DB Recruit Wyatt Grisell aka Grizzy has been making plays all of his life
I can't stress more how important it is to keep getting better in every film your produce, as in our S.T.E.P ratings, we use key factors like (U) Upside and (I) Intangibles, which is boiled down into in simplistic terms, getting better daily. Grisell has a very solid foundation at home to help build his house, as I got to speak to his father about the type of structure and knowledge he has passed on to Wyatt. Mr.Grisell is a high school football coach himself and was a stellar three sport athlete and you will see what a well coached DB looks like in his son's stellar knew sophomore year tape below. On the first two plays of Wyatt's Sophomore highlights, you will see a vast improvement in his quickness and see how "Grizzy" likes to get physical in bump and run coverage. He is able to stay in the receiver's inside pocket on the first play of his tape and then is able to make a very keen play, while showing off his block shedding ability to shut down the wide receiver screen play. Grisell is a very "pliable" player in the fact that his back pedal is very fluent and demonstrates perfectly "flight feet" in his footwork when making his decision to break on the football. Wyatt is a stand-out tackler for a defensive back and can be seen flying downfield on kickoff, while very easily avoiding defenders to make the tackle. Once again, at 1:04 into his footage you will see him shutdown the widely used wide receiver screen and make another great form tackle, which is able to take away the runners base (legs). You will see Grisell be very disruptive on the next few plays in the passing game and once again is in perfect positioning to make a play on the football. He shows very good ability later in the film, at around 2:18, to leave his zone coverage once the ball is thrown and is able to break quickly up to the underneath route to make yet another beautiful form tackle. More below film.
Wyatt Grisell proves to be a powerful return man
I can't say enough about the technique shown in this young man's footage and how much I respect the coaching he has received overall. That being said, the kid is also an exceptional athlete, as he is bursting at the seems with energy when returning kicks. At 2:28, you will see Grisell flow through traffic on a kick return, only to appear to be stopped in his tracks, then shows his very powerful running style and carries a truck load of defenders for another 5 yards. You can point out the fact that Wyatt is only 5'7 and pushing 140LBS currently, but you cannot deny the brilliant caliber of play that is exhibited in both his freshmen tape below and his new sophomore highlights above. This is a true testament to the home tutelage that Wyatt is receiving, and he obviously is able to take that knowledge and replicate it on the football field, which is a true testament of where this recruit's overall potential at the next level. It appears they try and block Grizzy with a linebacker out on the screen pass, after his powerful return, but Grizzy said he is having none of that in "Grizz Territory". Even on the next play, Grizzy is able to get the ball carrier for a loss in the backfield, after avoiding more –much larger– defenders. I am very excited for the future of this young man and the future of Nevada High School Football, as it is very hard to find young men that are receiving this kind of knowledge fromthe mental and technical training that players like Grisell are receiving. I look forward to following the progression of Grizzy intuitively, as he is no underdog in this format, but a rising recruit that will thrive under the right kind of pressure that produces refined diamonds at the end of the process.

You guys can all learn from each other, take the time to study who does what good and who needs to work on certain areas technique wise. This game is not a game of inches, but a game of tenth's of second. We test if you can achieve this standard of play in events like the 40 yard dash. If you can improve 2-3 tenth's of second with perfecting your start and overall technique, you can learn other techniques on the field that will rapidly enhance your overall play. Remember, there are always new methods arising that can be detrimental to your overall career and play on the field and there are the proven methods that have been used for centuries to dominate opponents.

TOp Safety Recruit Joe Jackson is back in Action for Richlands HS and is back attacking the football in 2018.
Sometimes as a Free Safety you have to come up and make plays when your team is getting dominated in the 8-man box, as Joe Jackson is seen doing in his teams opening loss to Normal Community High School. Joe will be playing some outside linebacker as well this season after showing more great speed to the football out of the defensive backfield. Number 27 is seen coming up in the box after running down a ball carrier on his first play to make a great form tackle up near the line of scrimmage. Joe shows more of his side to side movement and that he is back at 100% on the next play, as he once again meets the ball carrier after he clears the first level of defenders from the Free Safety position. Joe shows more great football instincts on the very next play, as he once again is able to cut off the ball carrier, while tracking him down all the way to the sideline.
As you can see in the screen shot above, Joe lays out perfectly on top of the football to execute the field goal block, giving the boot no chance to go through the uprights.. He also shows great acceleration off the line of scrimmage and is instinctively able to leave the ground for the blocked kick from a long distance. Jackson is able to make more tackles to end his film with great overall body control and technique. Even though Richwoods suffered a loss, they will head back to the drawing board and keep fighting up front to secure the ball carrier before he gets his momentum rolling downhill. This was not your "Normal" Normal Community High School Football team, as they had a very good read-option game plan heading into the contest and their QB executed very well. The only way to win in a bad loss like this is to figure out why, get better and move on quickly, as their next contest is at home against Manual High School on Friday, Aug 31st.
Adrian Cuevas comes to us from Central Catholic High School in Modesto, CA and is an extremely athletic student-athlete who has gained interest from some big time D1 programs and high academic programs alike. Adrian shows uncanny ability in man to man coverage and is able to stay on the inside hip of his receiver, while still being able to flip his head around to locate the football to make a big play. On the first play of his Class of 2019 highlights above, Cuevas is able to dislodge the football with his helmet, while flying at full speed to create a huge turnover, which otherwise would have resulted in a touchdown. The hustle and determination that Cuevas shows on the next play of his highlights shows his 4.5 speed, along with the high energy he brings to the Central Catholic defense, as he hawks down a ball carrier from behind, once again saving an inevitable touchdown. Adrian makes a perfectly played interception and shows why offenses across the state of California choose to stay away from passing to this phenomenal student-athlete's side of the football field. Adrian has an outstanding back-pedal and shows outstanding agility when flipping to his body to stay with his receiver, as you will never see him get beat deep. He shows a very keen sense of play design and is able to come up extremely quickly on short screen passes and run plays to make stellar tackles inside the box. This shows me that Cuevas could also play FS or even SS at the next level, as he shows no fear in coming up and making the tackle on ball carriers. He uses his hands very well to detach from blockers, as seen as he fights through the quick screen block at 1:05 into his film to make another negative play for the opposing offense. Cuevas shows more stellar technique on the post route he is seen masterfully covering at 1:32 into his highlights, as he is in perfect position once again to make a play on the football. Cuevas uses his hands very well to detach from oncoming blockers and is able to swiftly get to the ball carrier and then is able to take out the runners legs with great tackling technique. Adrian has been nominated as a Scout Trout All-American after exhibiting stellar play on the field and outstanding academics in the classroom with a 3.0 GPA, 21 ACT and 1050 SAT score. I am extremely excited to watch Adrian play this up and coming season, as he has been working hard and dominating recruiting camp circuits all Spring long. Thanks for joining our Scout Trout Elite Pipeline Program, and I am sure all of your hard work will pay off in the college football recruiting process.
Sam Reed has been nominated as a Scout Trout Early Selection All-American because of his ability to completely take the top off a defense as well as his outstanding ball skills used to go up and win toss-ups that are won or lost in the air. Standing at 6'2,170LBS with about 10 more pounds of added muscle, Reed will be a big time deep threat at the division one level. Coming out of the backfield, while lined up at the H-Back position on his first play of his highlights, Sam is able to run one of Scout Trout's favorite routes–the wheel or the out-and-up. Reed is able to execute the route to perfection. After the catch, Sam is able to drag the defender a couple extra yards and shows great grit and determination in his overall style of play that is highly conducive to heavy production at the next level. Sam shows the ability to adjust well to the ball in the air and is able to locate under thrown footballs to prevent a disaster and often make a big play. But when his QB is not pressured and throwing off of his back foot, Reed can be found being hit in perfect stride. I believe, with his long stride and athletics, we can easily get 1 to 2 tenths of a second off of his 40 yard dash time. Even though Jerry Rice ran a 4.6 in his 40 yard dash, this is equivalent of being drafted in the 6th or 7th round of today's NFL Draft or going in the 1st or 2nd round. Sam gets up field very quickly in the screen game and has very good acceleration, as he is also not afraid to lower his shoulder and plow forward for extra yards. Sam can be seen around 1:08, winning a 50/50 ball and shows remarkable concentration to finish the catch. Sam averaged over 20 yards per reception this season, and when you watch how soft his hands are when catching deep, over the shoulder throws, you see the All-American athlete that Sam is and why we have selected him as an early nomination for our All-American Bowl weekend. Reed is an excellent blocker out on the edge. Once he engages, he knows how to finish his block, as seen a few plays later in his highlights. He runs at an extraordinary speed out on the next play, then proceeds to line up at Defensive back on the next play, and completely unearth the opposing receiver. You can see Sam high-pointing a spectacular interception, as he leaps completely over the receiver to create a turnover for John Carroll. Sam Reed would make a great free safety at the next level, as he gets great depth in coverage and is able to break on the football with great overall instincts. His "HOG TIED" tackling form is one of the best I have seen in how aggressively he is able to sweep the base out from a ball carrier. He completely "KILLS THEIR LEVERS", as Scout Trout likes to say. All in all, Sam Reed demonstrates exactly what it takes to compete at a high level in the world of collegiate football. I cannot be more excited that he has accepted his Scout Trout Early Nomination for our 2019 All-American Bowl!
