Welcome, I once again am bringing you the best of the young talent from around our great conference. As a rule refresher players must be a true or redshirt freshman and must start or recieve considerable play time (such as a 3rd and 4th WR). Without further adieu I bring you this years line up QB RS(Fr) ARMY’s Lester Lee 6’5” 217lbs (68 ovr, 76 spd, 78 acc, 80 thp, 77 tha) HammerHead has yet to make a decision so I decided to do a little something to give him a nudge in the right directing by nominating his current second stringer to the All-Snoopy team. There were a couple impressive freshman outside of Army’s two-qb conundrum (WKU’s Travis Marks and UAB’s Richard Mitchell and Idaho’s Jon Wheeler) but seeing as they don’t start I’m more than happy to give FMF(hammerhead) his first All-Snoopy player. Lester comes in with elite size and an above average arm, delivering accurate passes but lacks the elite arm strength for long balls right now. Army’s coach has shown public signs of wavering between his two youngsters and in this man’s opinion, Lee will be starter by week 2. Book it. HB RS(Fr) IDAHO’s William Lane 5’11” 199lbs (78 ovr, 81 spd, 73 str, 86 agi, 82 acc, 79 btk, 77 car, 81 trk, 76 elu, 83 bcv, 70 cth, 87 stf arm and spn, 78 jk) Willie Lane here looks to be a good APB. With decent hands coming out of the backfield and the ability to mix it up between the tackles, he appears to be a guy you could count on during any down, even as a current second stringer. His downside would be the lack of any discernable north-south speed. His stats read what you would expect your 6’1” 225 power back to have but bundled up in a much smaller package. I was surprised by the lack of youth at starting HB/second string HB. A lot of veteran talent at the top of the depth charts FB True Fr WKU’s Justin Hawthorne 6’1” 228lbs (69 ovr, 79 spd, 82 acc, 98 agi, 76 str, 78 pbf, 86 stf arm, 80 bcv) I almost didn’t want to put a FB but Hawthorne is good enough to make this years edition of the All-Snoop team. He’s a very intriguing player, he has the basic tools to become a very good FB and his 98 agi is pretty awesome should you need him to pick up some production on the ground. His blocking leaves some things to be desired but nothing that cant be improved in 4 years. WR RS(Fr) KENT STATE’s Marquice Bolden 6’4” 218lbs (76 ovr 80 spd 89 acc 78 agi 90 rte 84 cit 83 sp cth 82 jmp 84 rls 78 car) I must first compliment the conference one what appears to be a bumper crop of young wide receivers. Multiple teams have at least one young stud. Sadly many were too low on their respective depth charts to be considered but they have certainly been noted. Kent State has the distinction of youngest corp however. Qwon’s 2,3, and 4 recievers are all freshman and all 76 ovr. While Bolden was the lowest of the 3, currently sitting in the number 4 spot, I found him to be more impressive. He certainly has the size, a good 3 inches over the next tallest in the trio, and his other attributes make up for his lack of top end speed. I think Bolden could turn out the best of the three when all is said and done. RS (Fr) WMU’s Michael Green 5’11” 203lbs (78 ovr, 91 spd, 83 acc, 85 agi, 73 cth, 74 rte, 84 cit, 88 jmp, 84 rls, 71 car, 78 btk) Green is an anti-Bolden. While Bolden is your big go up and get it possession receiver, Green is more of a quick inside guy with good hands and agility and even better speed. There’s not much he does bad and with 3 seniors in front of him he looks to become a number 1 option in the very near future. TE True Fr KENT STATE’s Ronald Butler 6’6” 238 lbs (77 ovr, 80 spd, 78 acc, 77 agi, 75 cth, 70 cit,rte 71 pb, 82 rb, 78 str, 80 pbs, pbf) This one wasn’t even close. Butler is far and away the best freshmen TE out there. While there is some youth in the starting TE spots there is very little quality. Butler does it all and does it all very well. Need a receiver? He’s your guy with 75 cth and enough speed to get you some extra YAC. Need an extra blocker? Well shit he can do that too, with better ratings than some starting OL’s (trust me I’ve looked) he can do a good job sealing the DE or reaching the OLB. Just about as good as last years All-Snoopy TE Caleb Carlson is now as a Soph, and that’s saying something. OL RS(Fr) WKU’s RT Michael Coleman 6’5” 289lbs (75 ovr, 82 pb, 78 rb, 80 ib, 77 str, 84 rbf, 75 rbs, 74 pbf, 84 pbs) I was surprised at how little youth there is on the H4Y OL’s. Only enough for 3 freshmen to receive the honor of being on the All-Snoopy team and they are all tackles. Despite a weak overall class the cream of the class is still very good, such as DCD’s Coleman. A good technique guy with good strength, he wont impress you with anything in particular but he wont let you down either, he has no weak attribute category. RS(Fr) IDAHO’s T.J. Collins 6’3” 310 lbs (77 ovr, 74 acc, 68 awr, 81 pb, 74 rb, 77 ib, 79 str, 77 rbf, 76 rbs, 85 pbf, pbs) Collins is your prototypical left tackle. He is a massive individual who can just pass block the shit out of whatever defense he faces. This is very important in FMF’s offense, one that likes to go to the air a lot. His excellent pass blocking skill are supplemented by decent run blocking skills, nothing to write home about exactly but still good for a youngster. True Fr KENT STATE’s Steven Rowe 6’7” 281lbs (75 ovr, 75 acc, 76 pb, 75 rb, 73 ib, 78 str, 77 rbf, 75 rbs, 84 pbf, 85 pbs) Rowe is quite the impressive looking individual. He’s the kind of guy you want getting off your team bus first. He is another great pass blocking tackle who is serviceable in the ground game but really shines when locking down the right side on pass plays. Quite similar to Idaho’s Collins in several aspects. Could end up being a force and anchor of Qwon’s O-Line in a very short amount of time.
