OVERALL:  Travis is a very good High School Football player. At times is is hard to evaluate him because of the poor video quality and the trajectory at which the video was taken.  He is a versatile athlete that can play close to the LINE of SCRIMMAGE as well as in space. As an OLB versus a wide open, spread offense he does a good job of moving around and functioning on the field and is not overwhelmed by too much field. As a defensive player it is imperative you tackle well and efficiently and Travis does. 

POSITIVE ATTRIBUTES:

  1.Solid sure tackler that has the ability to make plays in the open field.

  2.Tackles with his eyes and head up, not down

  3.Good vision as he sees that play develop and come towards him. He sees the entire play.

  4.Keeps his feet. Very seldom is Travis knocked down

  5.Good hands...when ball is thrown near him he will catch it

  6.Has the ability to play Inside LB, OLB, and a variation of Strong Safety.One that is very close to the LOS.

  7.Plays with passion and hustle when the ball is snapped.

  8.Very good pursuit angles

  9.Good blitzer who accelerates to the QB. [Stay on feet and run through him, do not leap]

 10.Football strength. Travis is a strong athlete  [bench & squat}

DEVELOP:

  1.Need to put on weight.Upper body.

  2.210-215 pounds would be a solid weight for Travis

  3.Continue to work on zone drops. Getting a 'feel' for open space in zone drops is difficult to master. ZONE EYES--means you are allowing the QB to dictate your movements.

  4.In man technique do not peak at QB. MAN EYES means the players total concentration must be on the receiver. He will tell you when the ball is thrown.

  5.Learn to jam receivers and disrupt their release. This is part footwork and part hand usage.

  6.When turning to drop or cover man to man open hips more. Turn quicker and more forceful.

RECOMMENDATION:

  Travis is a very solid Division 2 prospect. He is a present day Junior that has room for physical growth and technique improvement. I believe he might be able to play inside linebacker as well. He does a good job of staying square to the LOS when he is aligned closer to the ball.This depends on his ability to gain weight. He cannot play inside linebacker at the next level when weighing only 190 pounds.

   Travis should begin making a list of realistic colleges he is interested in attending and make sure they are aware of his desires. Lastly, improve your highlight video. Circle where you are aligned prior to each play. In addition, include more plays that illustrate you running a greater distance in pursuit of a ball carrier.

TARGET SCHOOLS:

    Jacksonville U      Albany State [GA]     W.Alabama            N.Alabama   

    Davidson             Lenoir Rhyne             UNC Charlotte       UNC Wilmington

    St. Augustine

DRILLS and TECHNIQUES:

     1.Zone drop drills without the ball being thrown. Footwork and hip technique.

     2.Jump rope--quickness development

     3.Ball catching skills

     4.Turn Zone---drop to a specific area as fast as you can

     5.Bag drills where you accelerate into a bag without stopping feet.

     My name is Travis D. King, I am17 years old and a rising senior, currently playing on the Lake Minneola High School football team, my number is forty five (45).  I have been a part of the varsity football team since my freshman year after starting on the junior varsity team.  I led the team during my freshman year in tackles along with contributing to the offense earning the MVP award for the year from my coaches. I also was awarded the MVP for my senior year as well.  I strive to offer my maximum contribution to my team wherever my coaches see fit.  I am currently an outside linebacker for my team the majority of my playing time.  However, I am also utilized on special teams and in power offense plays as a running back.  I am told my skills and speed will enable me to be a strong safety at the college level.  My current statistics are as follows:

Height   5’11” Weight 190

40 yd dash 4.63 Broad jump 119 Vertical jump 32 Bench press 360 pounds Squat 545 pounds

Solo tackles this year 59 Total tackles 88(averaging 8 per game) caused fumbles 3

Interceptions 1(scored touchdown upon interception after running for 23 yards)

     I am a well rounded student athlete earning a 3.1 unweighted G.P.A. currently with a strong sense of community involvement.  I have volunteered over 100 hours in my last two years of high school with Operation Outdoor Freedom (assisting disabled veterans), volunteer Pop Warner coach, Lake County Sheriff’s Office Summer Camps, and Habitat for Humanity.  My future plans are to major in sports medicine and upon graduation join the United States Army to train with the Special Forces.  I have lettered in the following sports at Lake Minneola High School: Football (starting in freshman year), lacrosse, swimming, and weight lifting.  When I am given the opportunity to be part of a college football program I will give my personal best both on and off the football field to make the maximum contribution as a student athlete. 

Sincerely,

Travis D. King
