SKY ZONE JUMP IN TO GIVE: CHRIS CALHOUN
by Ricky Dimon
Centennial athlete helps feed the hungry

 

Chris Calhoun played three different positions-defensive end, inside linebacker and outside linebacker-for the Centennial Knights in 2013. He finished second on the team in both tackles and sacks.

 

While Calhoun's football talents are undeniable, it is his versatility off the field that made him a worthy member of the prestigious Elite Junior Classic roster. Among his contributions to the community are participation in Centennial's Knights Junior Camp during the summer and in the Feeding the Hungry program.

 

At Knights Junior Camp, kids from grades four through eight work on drills with select members of Centennial's football team. Last summer, Calhoun coached his own group of campers through the drills and got to see both his work and the work of his campers when a game took place at the program's conclusion.

 

In Feeding the Hungry, Calhoun and his father, Vincent Calhoun, pack food and collect clothing for the homeless. The Calhoun men have also spent time getting to know some of those people in need. Chris makes a special point of reading the Bible during his meetings with homeless people and talking to children of homeless families, trying to brighten their day while also giving them advice.

 

Centennial head coach Jeff Carlberg has been thrilled to have that kind of leadership transfer over to the football team, as well. If the community reaps the benefits of Calhoun's presence, so do Knights' coaches and players.

 

"Chris is a high-character kid," Carlberg assured. "He's kind, caring; the type of kid you want to have on your team. His teammates like being around him because of his character and his work ethic. He works hard on and off the field and in the weight room, so he is a great leader by example."





RECRUITING RECAP: RECEIVERS
By Craig Sager II
Receiving corps shows speed and power

 

NORTH TEAM

 

Nekyle Lundie (Tucker)

 

Lundie stands 6-foot-3 and already possesses the skillset of a go-to college receiver. Lundie

caught two passes for 101 yards and a touchdown in the Elite Junior Classic and showcased his ability to win in jump ball situations. The Tucker junior excelled in his blocking as well and delivered one of the hardest hits of the Elite Junior Classic on a North screen pass.  Whether it was short passes, deep balls, routes over the middle or blocking in practice and the game, Lundie was picture-perfect in every aspect. On both of Lundie's long catches in the Elite Junior Classic he was able to jump up and fight for the football, make the catch and stay on his feet and gain more yards. That is a very difficult thing to do and Lundie makes that and the rest of the game look easy.

 

Daniel Imatorbhebhe (North Gwinnett)

 

Imatorbhebhe is another physical receiver that is poised for a huge 2014 season. The 6-foot-4 wideout was a key part of North Gwinnett's lethal receiving corps this season and will step into the go-to role with Almonzo Brown next season.

Imatorbhebhe has the speed and power to be a dangerous target in the screen game and his height and leaping ability creates a mismatch with any defensive back. Imatorbhebhe is an excellent blocker and will be a reliable and big play target at the collegiate level. At the state championship last month multiple coaches from the SEC told me they were interested in Imatorbhebhe and have been following his progress.

 

Almonzo Brown (North Gwinnett)

 

Brown was referred to the smartest player on the field by North offensive coordinator Tripp Allen after the first day of practice after grasping the new playbook so quickly. Brown can do it all at the receiver position and ran some of the best routes I saw throughout the Elite Junior Classic weekend. Brown showed his ability to make plays with a couple huge blocks in the Elite Junior Classic and had the best catch of the weekend with a one handed touchdown grab during the first practice. Brown will likely be one of the top three wideouts in the state by the end of next season and the physical 6-foot-2, 200-pound receiver already holds an offer from Florida.

 

Samuel McDade (Cross Keys)

 

McDade's speed caught my eye when I watched film before the Elite Junior Classic and in person it was equally impressive. The 5-foot-10, 160-pound wideout was the smallest of the group but he can flat out fly down the field. The track star posted a 49.31 400-meter dash time and showed his quickness as well when he broke in and out of his routes. McDade will need to add a solid 15-20 pounds to his frame to become college ready and by doing so he can become a dangerous target to have in the perimeter. Another one of McDade's strengths is his vertical and he can win jump ball situations.

 

Sean Harper (Hart County)

 

Harper is one of the best safeties in the state, but he is also a great receiver. During the Elite

Junior Classic weekend, Harper's ability to locate the football and adjust to make the catch was the best I saw. In the regular season, Harper hauled in five interceptions while keeping his eyes on the route runners so that should tell you enough about how valuable this trait is.  Harper caught a 37-yard pass in the Elite Junior Classic showed a great burst of speed after securing the grab.

 

 

SOUTH TEAM

 

Brad Stewart (Benedictine)

 

Stewart caught a 41-yard touchdown pass from Tyree Paulk to tie up the Elite Junior Classic at 10 before the half. The 6-foot-2 wideout outleapt double coverage and then dove across the endzone for the highlight reel score. Stewart is an automatic receiver that catches anything thrown his way. He did a great job creating space in during his routes and Vanderbilt recruiting tweeted during the game that Stewart is a prospect they have had their eye on.

 

Keyston Fuller (Griffin)

 

Fuller has already been offered by Georgia Tech and UNC and shined in the spotlight as he helped pace Griffin to the Class AAAA state championship this season. Fuller can beat press coverage and puts a ton of pressure on the defense with his blazing speed. Fuller is above average with his blocking and has great hands.

 

T.J. Rahming (McEachern)

 

The crispest routes ran all weekend were from Rahming, who is a dynamic

playmaker at the receiver position. Rahming can make guys miss in open space and loses defenders with his quick cuts and his elusive jukes. Rahming can be a go-to receiver at the next level and will be used best in quick screens where the speedy receiver can make something happen.
