One athlete who we have been following and reporting on for 2 seasons now is Seattle Prep two-way stud Tere Calloway. At 6’0″ and 195 pounds there is not a more complete athlete who exists in the Washington recruiting class of 2013.
He dominated last season for Prep on both sides of the ball and stood out for his gritty get-it-done style of play. Complimenting that is his ability to become a human-highlight at a moments notice.
During the season for 2011 he had the following stats:
- 109 Rushes for 1,179 Yards.
- 20 TD’s.
- 10.8 yards average per rush.
- 92 Total Tackles which included 24 assists and 68 solos.
- 2 forced fumbles.
- 10 Pass Break Ups
- He helped lead his team to a 9-2 record in 2011
On the field Calloway is a big hitter who opposing offensive players have to keep one eye on. He is only steps away from delivering a big hit, making a pick, or stripping the ball. He is comfortable as a lock down corner but looks great in zone coverage packages too as he reads well and can react quickly to most situations.
Late this year he was offered by Purdue who saw his highlight films and were impressed. That offer came as he was hitting the Semper Fidelis Combine and making an appearance in the Offense-Defense Junior Bowl in Texas. An appearance that showed his skills both ways against many of the Nations top underclassmen. In fact he was an MVP of that Nationally televised game.
“The O-D Bowl was a really great experience for me, I made a lot of connections down there with my bowl game coaches who want to help me get my name out down south and also made an impact on the O-D bowl panel who said they will be giving me a hard look for next years game,” said Calloway reflecting on his Texas Two-Step.
“I ended up with 119 yards on 7 touches 2 touchdowns and 10 tackles. I think I made an imprint down south on what NW players can really do which I am very proud of. The event was a great one for me,” he concluded.
The young man has vision, skill, desire and he has a dream. Not that all kids don’t but he verbalizes and plans for it. An ever present goal that drives his daily rituals and routines.
“A few schools I am hoping to hear from as well are Oregon State, Cal, Nebraska, and Virginia Tech. So I will be sending them my film and information as well.”
Calloway is a great talent and should be one of the top athletes in the 2013 class. We will follow his emerging story as the Spring and Summer come and look forward to covering him all season long.
Here is some film to review that will give you a great idea of what this special kid is all about.
