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.
