    Biggest Surprise -- [​IMG]Athlete Adam Joseph
    -- I initially thought he could come in and play Tight end or possibly linebacker... so for him to come in and be our workhorse tailback was a mild shock.

    Biggest Disappointment -- Shit Do i get to pick more than one?
    :4stars:HB Will Brown 5'9 210 -- looks absolutely terrible on the field....
    :4stars:HB 6'1 205 Ryan Jackson -- after a redshirt season he is probably still 3 years away from a carry.

    Most Potential -- :3stars:DE Jeremy Allen 6'4 283
    -- His ratings look really promising... after this redshirt year, he should see the field plenty...

    I would love to add some input, but none of my season 9 class saw the field this year. I expect some big things from them this upcoming season though... Several look very promising coming in with some decent ratings though.

    hmmm for the most part. I think one of my [​IMG]DEs Pettway didnt redshirt, but was a backup. I dont think he played any meaningful amount of time though.

    My Season 8 class was a monster for me. G Latimer is an 83 ovr as a fr rs and has 99 awareness. HB James was my starter and had over 1k yards while being hurt 7 weeks. SS Hawk is 83 ovr and started as SS all season. So MLB Morris has started all season and has had many impact plays. Jefferson has been a monster at DE as a RS Fr picking up 12 sacks and 2 more in the bowl game (you saw him first hand [​IMG])

    TE Brent Jones had a decent yr as a backup TE..next yr i might give him some carries at the goal line as he is a tank would good HB skills...

    FB Justin Bishop was the only freshman that started and had a good yr leading the way for Thompson..

    K Kenneth Strong hit 13/16, but was the 1st K in the last 5 yrs to not win the Kicker of the yr..
