MEMBER SINCE   July 26, 2016

My name is Joe and I am a 23 year old graduate of the University of Cincinnati. I graduated with a degree in Sports Administration because of my love of all things sport(s). I have never moved from the city of Cincinnati and I enjoy the city I was born in very much. I went to La Salle High School (where Drue Chrisman and Joe Burger went) before heading off to UC. Growing up my favorite sport to play was baseball however I love watching and analyzing football more than baseball. When I was 17, I lost my father to a brain tumor and no longer really had someone to talk about sports with all the time. Not long after I found this website and have been lurking since then and have been frequently visiting the site sometimes 3-4 times a day.

I had the pleasure of getting to watch and meet Jake while I interned at La Salle during the fall of 17-18. Not only is he a great kid from a great family, he is also extremely athletic. Not only was he the kicker, he also played WR as a Soph. Kid is talented.

Re-al Mitchell's parents are leading him astray. He seems like a really good kid but his Dad is the perfect example of the bad sports parent.

He called Justin Fields the next DeShaun Watson.... That's like when SI put Bryce Harper on the cover as a 16-yr kid and called him "The Chosen One".

Getting excited about Harrison and Fields is all good and dandy but that excitement, especially because of their ranking, means absolutely nothing until they prove themselves. My comment has nothing to do with excitement. I am extremely excited to see Harrison in Scarlet and Gray and the possibility of Fields is cool. But calling a former top-5 recruit, that is just one year removed from High School, the next Deshaun Watson, who won a National Championship and is winning in the NFL is asinine. 

Edit: Appreciate the +1.

That team made me fall head over heels in love with football. I was just 9 years old when we went to Canton. Went to every single game with my Dad and two of my uncles for years but that year was special. I'll never forget Dominick Goodman, Mister Simpson, Andre Revels and the two Byrd brothers.
