Player: Dominic Milanese Pos: WR HT: 6’2’’ WT. 185 Speed: 4.7 City: Fort Worth, FL
Stance/Start: Dominic has a good WR stance, just needs to show consistency to be in it on every snap. He needs to be consistent with bursting of the ball for at least the first 3 steps regardless of the route he is running. With Big receivers (like Dominic is) the tendency is to get too high within the first 10 yards when running routes. Staying low will help WR’s get in and out of the hitch, slant, comeback, and dig much quicker. Dominic should continue to work on exploding off the ball in his first three steps and that will help him stay low when running.
Route Running: Dominic uses the stem of his routes and his body position to get himself open. He excels at fade routes and all in breaking routes because of his size. Intermediate routes could be improved very easily by staying lower in the first 10 yards. Dominic understands spacing and where he is on the field. This is demonstrated all throughout the video and with multiple catches near the sideline.
Hands: Dominic appears to have very large hands from the video. He uses his hands to catch all balls throw in his direction no matter where they are placed on his body. Dominic uses great body control to put in body in position to make all catches look routine. This is the sign of a natural WR and is a very under-valued skill set. Dominic showed multiple times the ability to go catch the football at its “highpoint” before the defender had a chance to make a play on the ball
Run After Catch: Dominic is surprisingly elusive for his size and speed. Dominic does not shy away from contact and more times than not is delivering the blow to the defender.
Blocking Ability: Dominic is a physical WR and that is displayed in his blocking. Multiple times he showcased putting cornerbacks on their butts. I can see this will be a skill set that will continue immediately at the next level and something Dominic should continue to take pride in.
Special Teams: Dominic has the ability to be a great punt and kickoff returner with added speed. He is very elusive and has the ability to make defender miss and run through tackles.
Defense/Free Safety: There is not a lot of video to evaluate this position; however Dominic has the ability to be a great FS. He has the size, the ball skills and the physical tools to play this position. He shows the range to cover sideline to sideline, come up with interceptions, and lay-out Wr’s going for a catch. With coaching, he could develop into a great FS, even though he is a natural WR
Comments: Dominic is a Big WR who possesses the skills to play in college. He is a natural WR, and that is shown by him making the tough catches look routine. His strengths are his size, body control, hands and being physical. He can improve on his first 3 steps in every route, making every route look the same. With all Big Wr’s, footwork and foot speed is always something that can be improved. Dominic has a bright future of college football ahead of him at whatever Division Level he ends up playing. With his current skill set, he will be a very good WR at the D2 level, but with his intense training and conditioning regiment, he can be at a D1 talent by mid 2015. Being a returner in both the kick/punt return game as well as his blocking ability will separate him from other big outside WR’s. He will need to get his 40 time down to high 4.5’s if he wants to be a scholarship Div I WR.

My name is Dominic Milanese and I am number four (#4) on Pope John Paul II Varsity football team. I have been playing football all my life. My freshmen and sophomore year I was at Park Vista High school, where I won an award for JV player of the year as a receiver. Then I transferred to Pope John Paul for my junior year. I graduate with class of 2016. I am 6’2, 180 lbs. I contribute to my team as a leader by giving one hundred percent (100%) at practice, and on game day. I am not a follower and like to help the younger athletes. With the help of my quarterback; I had 43 receptions, 755 yards, and 8 touchdowns my junior year. I also returned kicks and punts finishing the season off with 1088 all purpose yards. I am the leading receiver in Palm Beach County (small schools), 4th overall and was voted MVP for the past spring season. I also helped my team playing free safety and corner back with 2 interceptions. I was selected to the first team SFC All-Conference team. I am very proud and thankful to represent my school and coaches for helping achieve this award. My bench max is 250 lbs and my squat is 360 lbs. I was privileged to be starting both ways on my team. I would like to graduate high school with a high GPA, and as long as I keep working hard I will achieve that goal. My Hunger and Passion to be successful in life is the driving force to be the best I can be on and off the field. I hope to play football at the next level and go to a school were my education will help me live a good healthy life.
I currently have 3.4 GPA. My dedication and hard work will be displayed to you always. I have volunteered at Boca Helping Hands Charity to help feed the less fortunate throughout this year for community service. I am striving to be the best I can be in everything I do. Given an opportunity to be a part of your team would be a privilege. Thank you for your time, and thoughts in considering me to be a part of your institution and football team.
During the offseason, my parents have hired a former NFL Cornerback to do one one one training 3 times a week to work on my speed and explosion.
