SCOUT TROUT FOOTBALL
Scout Trout football has been around the past three college football recruiting classes, while the pipeline recruiting program has ran effectively for the past four recruiting classes. Many of the athletes that helped form our new website College Football Today, are now embarking on the next step in their careers as now starting college football players and possibly future NFL Draft picks. Not all players were listed on Scout Trout Elite, but most were and we want to take a moment to acknowledge these up and coming stars of College Football Today.
All articles linked are former Scout Trout articles, when I was learning how to web edit and defining my own process to create College Football Today.
ECU SPRING FOOTBALL 2019
I got some reports out of ECU spring football 2019 and after nominating Darius Pinnix as a Maxwell candidate at College Football Today. Pinnix only got to see limited action in the backfield in 2018, but when he got his chance to shine, he did just that. Here is a exert from ECU football's website about Darius Pinnix, out of Western Alamance, HS in North Carolina.
"Poised to elevate standing as the Pirates’ top rusher after an impressive debut as a true freshman in 2017 … Penciled in as one of three prime candidates, along with Hussein Howe and Trace Christian, who will each challenge for a full-time starting role during preseason camp and throughout the 2018 season … Offers ample strength, agility, lateral movement and a low center of gravity that could enhance third-and-short ground production … Could also experience additional reps as a kick returner depending on offensive workload … Suffered through some nicks and bruises throughout the spring, thus was kept out of scrimmage action by coaches for precautionary reasons."
UTEP 2019 SPRING FOOTBALL
The UTEP 2019 spring football roster features top 2017 recruit at Scout Trout Elite Tres Barboza, who played one season at Tyler community college before transferring to the University of Texas El-Paso. Tres was one of the most impressive offensive linemen I had identified in the 2017 college football recruiting class and he was located in late April by former Scout Trout Elite parent Joel Barbosa. Joel also has a son who came through the Scout Trout Elite pipeline recruiting program, who will be playing this fall at Oklahoma Panhandle State in Joel Barbosa Jr, with College Football Today NAIA Player Of The Year Martez Vrana, who also was located by the Scout Trout Elite network.
BEST COLLEGE KICKERS
The best college kickers will be kicking at the FCS level of College Football Today in Top 2017 K/P recruit Carson Reed and 2018 All-American K/P Michael Benson. Carson Reed recently transferred from Chadron State to Montana State and was the top specialist in the nation in the 2017 recruiting class, as he kicked in Alaska extremely well for four years. He fought through many obstacles to become a division one kicker and after watching some of his practice videos as of late, Reed is one of the top specialist identified as a NFL draft prospect in 2023. That brings me to 2018 All-American kicker Michael Benson, who had one of the strongest legs I had witnessed in person and he will be kicking in his second season at Robert Morris college. Michael was featured on ESPN at the start of the college football season and was booming kickoffs deep for the Robert Morris Colonials and is a top 2022 NFL Draft K/P prospect.
PVAMU SPRING FOOTBALL
We were up at PVAMU spring football on behalf of College Football Today and there is another rising star at PVAMU football besides the speedy Dawonya Tucker. Jermaine Jackson was a All-State defensive end at Trinity high school in Kentucky and is now right down the street from our Houston headquarters at College Football Today. We wish Jermaine the best this season and all of the Prairie View A & M football team, as the prepare for SWAC conference play at College Football Today.
THE BEST CFB PLAYERS 2019
The best CFB players in 2019 will prove themselves as former Scout Trout Elite student-athletes time and time again, as they all were molded and refined through the process they created for themselves on their journeys. We will be talking about more of last years 2018 Scout Trout elite recruiting class on the next update on former Scout Trout Elite recruits, who defied the odds and were apart of the 3% of high school athletes to receive a college football scholarship, with the help of the Scout Trout Elite pipeline recruiting program and College Football Today.
