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…
While other schools selected animals, colors, or historical figures as nicknames and mascots for their sporting teams, California University of PA aligned itself with Vulcan, the Roman blacksmith of the gods, who created armor for various deities and heroes, and constructed the thunderbolts of Jupiter. And, perhaps no Cal player better exemplifies the strength, toughness, and steely resolve of Vulcan more than safety Rontez Miles. Although Miles will enter the NFL draft as one of the most decorated players in Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference history, as a four-time All PSAC-West selection, back to back Defensive Player Of The Year, and two-time Division II All American, his journey has been laced with struggle, disappointment, and challenge. However, while he refuses to be defined by his past, he also recognizes how it has shaped his character, stating “where I’m from made me who I am today.” Refusing to be the nail, Miles, 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…
