Joshua Gleason is going to be sharing his player interviews with us. His fourth one of this draft season is with Marshall wide receiver, Aaron Dobson.
The state of West Virginia currently only has two Division I programs. That also just happens to be the same amount of NFL players that were born in the state; the great Randy Moss of the San Francisco 49ers and Derek Hardman of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Born and raised in West Virginia, it’s also where Aaron Dobson has played all of his football. Attending Marshall University – a quick 45 minute drive from his hometown – Dobson plans on increasing that number of players playing in the NFL from his home state.
“It’s a blessing to have a chance to play in the NFL,” said Dobson. “I’m one of the few to make it out of West Virginia.”
Despite being blessed with prototypical Keep Reading…
Joshua Gleason is going to be sharing his player interviews with us. His third one of this draft season is with Georgia prospect Branden Smith.
Branden Smith is a rare breed of college football player. Not only blessed with uncommon athletic ability, he was able to play on both sides of the ball for the Georgia Bulldogs, something very rare nowadays in college football.
During his recruiting, it had been reported that the Georgia coaching staff showed Smith tape of former All-American cornerback Champ Bailey during his time at Georgia when he played on both sides of the ball. It was still a surprise to Smith when he got the chance to play offense for the Bulldogs.
“My freshman year, I was really amazed to be playing as a freshman on both sides of the ball,” said Smith. “My first game against Oklahoma State, it was shocking. They said I Keep Reading…
Joshua Gleason is going to be sharing his player interviews with us. His second one of this draft season is with Clemson defensive end, Malliciah Goodman.
If you were to take a look at Malliciah Goodman, you would think he has been playing football his entire life and that it’s fitting he is one of the top defensive end prospects in the upcoming NFL Draft. However, Goodman is still relatively new to the game.
Goodman has only been playing football since the 8th grade. He hasn’t even played football for half of his life, only nine years on the field. Yet if everything goes right, he will probably be on the gridiron for the next nine years as well (at least), and now at the highest level.
“My mom didn’t let me play city league because she didn’t want me to get hurt,” said Goodman on why he didn’t get Keep Reading…

Duron Carter: Son of a Legend, His Fall from Grace, and How He Is Making Amends
Much has been made of the path of Duron Carter.
First, we all knew him as the son of NFL legend, future Hall of Famer, and Minnesota Vikings great Cris Carter. Next, his legend began to grow due to what he was doing on the field – part of a St. Thomas Aquinas team that won back-to-back state championships in large part due to the 14 touchdown catches Duron reeled in as a senior – and he became a top high school recruit. Duron chose to follow his Dad’s footprints and go play for the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Next, as a freshman in 2009, he Keep Reading…
