Hey Chip,

Why do you think Parkview and Brookwood aren’t producing any D1 players? These schools were at the top of their game a few years ago.

Like I said, folks, this list is not comprehensive just yet. Let us know if you know of somebody that was omitted. We’ll verify and get him added.

Cartell McLendon from Class “A” Treutlen County signed with Albany State Wednesday.

I counted 29 from Stephenson High. That coaching staff is doing its job.

And how many state championships has Stephenson won?

Yeah, those guys are doing one HECK of a job.

anybody else find it strange that Tusculum College signed 29 scholarship football players from Georgia?

Excellent job by the coaching staff, parents, and student-athletes at Stephenson. Now this is what it is all about!!! I hope all the student-athletes throughout Georgia take full advantage of what a college scholarship offers and can lead to in the future.

FWIW, local media reported a 6th signee from Apalachee, lineman John Brown also to Pikeville.

floridajacket,

I was wondering the same thing. It’s also crazy how some of these small schools will sing like 10 players from a team.

“sign like 10 players from a team” just in case the grammar police decide to show up.

Tusculum is a DIVISION II SCHOOL. It is located in GREENEVILLE TENNESSEE. What on earth are they doing signing 29 kids FROM GEORGIA ALONE? Division II schools CAN ONLY CARRY 35 SCHOLARSHIPS!

http://tusculumpioneers.com/page.asp?articleID=1571
http://www.tusculum.edu/

How so very bizarre. Almost as strange as Michigan State signing so many prospects from small Georgia high schools …

Gerald

fat man:

I agree 100%. Let other schools take the state titles, Stephenson will gladly “settle” for putting so many kids in school. You know, I don’t think Peyton Manning ever won a high school (or college) championship either, and you know, he turned out fine. Drew Brees too.

This is for those parents and so called supporters in the stands at at Stephenson games that constantly want the staff fired. 29 scholarships out of 32 senoirs,the staff wants to win championships just like everyone else. But at the end of the day its about what you can do for your the kids beyond the football field. There are thousand of parents who would trade a state championship for a free education that last forever and save them money.You hear the story from so many parents at other high schools how the head coach never helped their son get into school. Gartrell is a man of truth,honesty and integrity.Some the parents and supporters that was cheering and clapping at signing are the main ones waiting for the program to fail. Good Stephenson Coaching Staff, keep up the good work(watch the backstabbers that support the program,but have no kids)

Way back when Ron Gartrell was at Shamrock High, I played for him (also alongside Corey Johnson ) during his first year as a head coach there. He was a good guy then but could get flustered. It makes me damn proud to see that his school and community have turned out a class like that!

I am an admitting recruiting junkie but this list is just incredible to view. For any school to have more than a handful of kids recieving a scholarship it means that there must be countless of hours put in by nonplayers to secure these guys a spot in college football. Maybe we should all think just as highly of a guy that works his butt off to get a kid into ANY school that will take him rather than focusing on negativity.

Really hope that the communities and programs that employ coaches who are sending this many kids to college appreciate what has been done for them.

BTW, on Sunday during the Superbowl, you will see one of Coach Gartrell’s players. All-Pro center for the Colts, Jeff Saturday.

Gerald……Tusculum can sign so many players because the NCAA does not know they are a member institution and the teams in their league don’t care because they lost most of their games in every year since Christ was a carpenter. If you where a grad from there would you even list it on your resume? Sounds like some sound you make when you have a bad cold.

Gerald…..do the math. With 35 scholarship for four years, you could not field a football team. Div II very very rarely ever give a full ride. These are all partial grant-in-aid’s. Just enough to financially allow the parents to afford the freight to go to some of these very expensive institution. Maybe you get 1/3 or a 1/2 ride. The kids and the parents are grateful.

It’s a double edged sword when it comes to Gartrell and the Stephenson program. On one hand, you have 25 + kids getting athletic scholarships, but on the other hand, why can’t you win a State Championship with all the this talent on your team. And unfortunately this will follow him until he wins one (State Title). Just as it followed Godfrey at SWD until ‘95. And no offense Dawggie, but he did lead a couple of pathetic teams at Shamrock.lol

I wished Lonnie Outlaw would have had better guidance. He didn’t take any college prep courses? How did his parents and school Admin let this happen? An athlete such as Lonnie with the opportunity to play Major D-1 college ball should have had somebody looking out for his best interest. I would like to hear an explanation as to how this came about. I heard he was so far behind that he might have to go to GMC for 2 years instead of one.

Tusculum College signed 80 football recruits for 2010!!! They signed 25 defensive secondary players……..25 players for 4 positions. WOW

Check out this internet link for a short summary:
http://www.tusculumpioneers.com/article.asp?articleID=1931

The Tusculum College home page shows one guy with two girls (one on each side of him) & the picture is entitled “EXACTLY”……………are they promoting the school or are they suggesting there are two girls for every boy on campus. Ingenious marketing campaign and I am sure it is also very effective!

Congrats to Stephenson

Just amazing! There are a quite a few players going to Valdosta State and the only paper that even bothers to cover Blazer Athletics is the Valdosta Daily Times. By the way, there are quite a few Valdosta State alumni all over Georgia.

JustMyOpinion What is the job description for a highschool coach? i don’t think that its to win a state championship, because if it is then 99% of the coaches have not done their jobs according to you. You have an icon in your midst and you don’t even know it. A gwinnett coach said before the season started that it is not his job to get a kid in college. he proceeded to get 1 kid in school this year but let you tell it because he has won a championship he is a made man. We need to stop hating on our black coaches and appreciate them for their contributions.

Every year this conversation comes up about Stephenson. State titles are a goal there just like everywhere, but it is delightful to see kids return in the fall and line the sideline in their college gear. It’s nice to know that in return for 3 or 4 years of blood, sweat and tears, there is an increased chance the hard work will pay off in a chance to earn a college education playing the sport you love. Gartrell and other coaches like him deserve applause for spending the extra time networking, preparing highlight films and showcasing players to colleges. I can’t imagine the time it would take to find scholarship opportunities for 30 kids. Ask your local coach if he’s doing that for his kids…

Let’s take Camden for example. With 30 seniors and 15 opportunities to showcase your talent (including two trips to the Georgia Dome plus a televised state title game), it borders on inexcusable to have 9 players earn a college scholarship, just 1 to a Division I school. Give the coaches all the credit you want, but you don’t win at the highest level of football in this state without college-level talent. If Gartrell can find off-the-map schools for kids to attend, so can Jeff Herron.

In my opinion two things at work here: coaches and feeder programs are not developing talent at an acceptable level, or the developed talent is not marketed properly. What college coaches find at Stephenson and other schools like is a college-ready student-athlete. Believe it or not, molding kids for the future is part of a coach’s responsibility. And if you want to place a state title over that, go ahead.

How it happened with Lonnie Outlaw is that only UGA offered him a scholarship to any BCS school.

UGA has others this season that we are the only BCS school to offer a scholarship.

We obviously employ the only offensive coaches in the nation who can evaluate talent, as seen in their attempt this last season to redshirt Washaun Ealey, then in the 3rd quarter of the 5th game with the season already lost and in shambles, we rip the redshirt off Washaun Ealey. But, it doesn’t end there. Even with Washaun Ealey as our top running back for the season, do you know how many games he actually Started ?

2.

Would anyone say that Orson Charles as the 2nd leading receiver last season for UGA in touchdowns/catches/yards earned the Starting Spot in the 12th game of a 13-game season.

It was obvious to me that he should have been the starter all season. The guy in front of him made all of 3 catches the previous year. 3. For that, he was made the starter and held it until the 12th game last year.

Pitiful.

3 Freshmen quarterbacks. That’s all we have. Can anyone suggest how in the 10th year of this Coach Richt Era, that we could let this happen to us either ?

What about Knowshon Moreno ? Redshirt the guy so we only get to see him 2 years. In all the big game losses those 2 years, Knowshon was handed the football an average of only 14 times a game.

Amazing list here to read, including all these offensive stars of the future and we got 1 injured running back who admits he is slow and who has bad grades and 1 injured OL and he from out of state.

Look at Marlon Brown. We wasted his redshirt year to play him for 2 plays against the vols, 2 catches for 15 yards total.

When we were struggling to evaluate our RB to determine which one should play, did we ever try handing the football to either of the 2 now senior Fullbacks, both of whom are NFL capable ? No.

How do we tell Logan Gray now in his 5th year on our proud campus that he is not up to snuff as a quarterback and must move to wide receiver because we don’t have any there besides now injured nearly every game AJ Green.

How do you give Branden Smith only 2 carries all season long, yet you were forced with the season already in the tank at that point, to rip the redshirt off the 11th best running back in the nation last year.

In big games, on 3rd and long, how to you keep calling running plays ? What’s that all about ?

How do you lead the nation in interceptions, fumbles and penalties every year and send your CEO your head football coach to defend that to the media answering that he really doesn’t care about it that when he was at Flawed State, they led the nation every year and yet every year Flawed State was great.

Did I miss something ? Are we really great on offense ?

Is that why NONE of these state of Georgia All-Star Offensive Players signed with us Wednesday ? That we are so great on offense ? That we evaluate talent well on offense and get our best players out there as the starter ? So, every offensive high school star in this state wants to come play on this offense ?

Or, is there just perhaps a problem here on offense that the recruits have to tell you about ?

Stevenson will win no state titles until they get a coach. When they do, they will dominate perhaps like know other school in the state history. BUT……….That will never happen. They think they have a fine coach. They dont. So they will get exited every year about their playoff chances and will fall to a better coached team. Again and again and again. They could have a already had four or five titles. Go to the playoffs and loose. Go to the playoffs and loose.Go to the playoffs and loose.Go to the playoffs and loose. Again and again and again.

What are they doing down there at HCHS because I know there is some great talent down there. Hart County usually produces pretty good players, at least when Coach Devan was head coach they were one of the top programs.

Reportedly there were 60, yes 60 players signed from the Columbus, Ga./Phenix City, Ala., does anyone know if this is correct. Less, than 300,000 people in the Russell County, Ala./Muscogee County Georgia area.

This does not sound correct!!

BuLLdawg,
Great points. Everyone pointed to Willie’s defense as the problem, but if we had better play-calling and a better organized attack plan on game day, we’d probably win 9+ games.

You can count on one thing. Should Richt and Bobo run the offfense in 2010 like they did in 2009, neither will have a job at UGA at the end of the season. 8-4 in 2010 will get Mark Richt fired (guraranteed). Even 9-3 isn;t likely to allow him to survive if ANY of the three are blowouts. Heck, if he loses to Tennessee he’s done at Georgia. I am simply echoing what I was told by a $200 million net worth booster…you know, the ones that tell the Athletic Board what to do.

Among just 5A’s and 4A’s Tech and UGA got the same number
which is 10 each and the only other ACC or SEC school that landed several was Clemson. I’m curious about the comments that Tech and UGA are losing to out-of-state schools. Whats the basis of that ?
