Harnett Central QB Taylor offered by UNC


Sep 19, 2009

Harnett Central quarterback Brian Taylor has received an offer from North Carolina, coaches confirmed Friday.

Taylor threw for 1,038 yards and ran for 326 yards last season as a sophomore. Standing at 6-foot-3 and 200-pounds, Taylor has already thrown for 654 yards and four touchdowns this season.

Harnett Central improved to 5-0 with a win over East Wake on Friday.

Taylor runs a 4.7 forty yard dash, a good time for his size. He will return to Harnett Central next year for his senior season and more offers are expected.

Fuquay-Varina head football coach Ryan Habich said Thursday afternoon that lineman Shaun Underwood and running back Cory Hunter both received offers this week.

New Mexico has offered both players and Underwood has also added an offer from N.C. State. The offer from the Pack was the first offer for Underwood.

Underwood is also receiving interest from Duke and East Carolina.

Standing at 6-foot-2 and 280-pounds, Underwood has been on the best defensive linemen in the area so far this season. The junior has recorded more than 15 tackles so far this season in four games for Fuquay-Varina.

Underwood plays defensive end and offensive guard for the Bengals. The N.C. State camp was the only camp Underwood attended over the summer.

Hunter, also a junior, was a first team selection for the Preseason All-OT Team released last month. As a sophomore, Hunter ran for over 1,800 yards to earn Tri-8 Player of the Year honors.

So far this season, Hunter has recorded

Teen battles cancer, hopes to play football again

HOBBS, N.M. — Michael Andrews had a bright future. He was a star athlete, an advanced placement student with solid grades and was planning to attend college on a football scholarship.

Likewise, Michael’s father, Hayden Andrews, was the proud father of a student athlete, the nutrition director at Lea Regional Medical Center and a team leader and local chairman of the annual cancer research fundraiser, Hobbs Relay for Life.

Then in February, after several worrisome months trying to discover the cause of Michael’s abnormally large lymph nodes, the diagnosis came back.

Michael had cancer.

“Who thinks of a 16-year-old having cancer?” Hayden Andrews said of the day Michael was diagnosed.

“Michael was a very healthy 16-year-old in the prime of his high school football career. We went into shock, denial and ‘How could this happen to us?’”

It was a shock that the Hobbs High School senior

Duke adds N.C. athlete to 2010 recruiting haul


Sep 15, 2009

Commitment number 14 is in the bag for the Blue Devils. This time it's in the form of 6'5 197 pound Monroe (N.C.) High standout Issac Blakeney who picks Duke over an official offer from East Carolina coupled with several in-state school looks.

"Coach Cutcliffe called me and told me that they were offering me a scholarship," Issac Blakeney confirmed via text on Tuesday morning. "I immediately accepted and committed. Duke was where I wanted to go all along."

A virtual unknown throughout most of the process, Blakeney popped up on the Duke radar after an impressive Shrine Bowl combine last year here he measured out at a true 6-foot-5 and 194 pounds while being clocked running a 4.51 forty. To prove his athleticism further, Blakeney recorded a 33.6 inch vertical jump. Coupled with his size, he's one of those receivers that gives quarterbacks the option of serving up jump balls in the endzone.

Currently rostered as a receiver, safety, and even linebacker

This database will be like no other recruiting database on the Internet.

The On The Trail Football Prospect Database will include all the basic information, such as height, weight and forty-yard dash time; but it will also include academic information, accomplishments, statistics, scouting reports, and more.
