PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Honestly, I think we should offer this kid, just on principle.
embarrassing for Buckeyes everywhere!
stiff hips, that was the reason he got moved to safety in the NFL. looked mighty stiff there
Nice. Well at least Malcolm hasn't tried to get rid of the video of this kid beating him like LeBron supposedly did when that kid dunked on him or over him or whatever at his camp a few years back.
Let's be fair, one-on-one full open field coverage is impossible to do in real life, no matter how awesome you are at DB. I fully believe that a lot of NFL DB's could not cover decently fast High School WR's given a fully open field with no restrictions. In the NFL, Jenkins lets the guy go inside for the LB or safety to pick up.
@steensn, he lets him go inside for the LB to pick up the bounty on him.
I'm pretty sure Jenkins let the kid beat him or was giving it about 10%. The point of his camp/fundraiser is to teach kids and not "lets see what foo's can beat the Jank!" He's doing a great thing
"Love my State, hate the football"
HAHA, not too soon :) Ouch!
There recently was a memory tweeted by Eric Olsen (center for the New Orleans Saints) about Junior Seau. Olsen talked about how Junior Seau was teaching at a football camp during Olsen freshman year of high school. At the end of the day Seau challenged any kid to a one-on-one with him and Olsen was volunteered because he was one of the larger kids in attendance. Olsen expected to lose to the 10-time pro-bowler, but instead Seau looked at Olsen, winked and let himself get pancaked. It made young Olsen's day and was a touching memory.
So it's not unheard for a pro to purposely take a dive/go half-speed in a high school football camp meant to teach and build up confidence in the younger generation. Especially for a player that comes from Jenkins' alma mater.
...Or Malcolm got served, whichever seems more plausible to you I guess.
Why was my signature changed? We are all Buckeyes here!
I'm going to with the fact that he Jenkins didn't give his all on this, why because he could've just pressed the kid at the LOS. Compared to NFL WRs it probably seemed like that kid was moving in slow motion to Jenkins, and like somone else mentioned the purpose of the camp is to build up self confidence, not tear it down.
Also according to the article the winner got the other's cleats. I am sure it would have looked really good for Malcolm to take some high schooler's shoes...
