Playing small school ball, especially 8 man football, puts a recruit out of the recruiting spotlight. What a guy has to do at that level to get noticed seems to be monumental. Yet there are phenomenal athletes that play ball there. One of them that did that is John Lesser out of Richland, Washington. This two way phenom broke records year after year and in the end even set National marks for rushing and Touchdowns.
The 5’11”- 185 lb burner may have the nastiest moves you will ever see. Now it is 8 man ball but consider that in open space with 2 or 3 defenders pursuing him he is facing the same obstacles as the big boys do. No difference- and when he makes these moves it is poetry. Wouldn’t I love to see this in slow motion!
