ANOTHER RECRUITING HIGHLIGHT VIDEO OF SAD HS PLAYERS MISSING TACKLES

New, 22 comments

To behold Florida commit Andre Debose's high school highlights tape is to ask the eternal questions about all blue-chippers' high school preview tapes: Is this person real? What kind of hilljack mongoloid coach doesn't spot the fastest player on the field at punter on 4th down and scream "FAAAAAAAAKE?" Are the rosters of high school football teams stocked with undiagnosed epileptics and fainting goats wearing human suits? Is this person actually as good as advertised? Does the announcer have to celebrate touchdowns with a warmed over Chris Berman phrase from 1985? Do high school bands play songs, or merely toot away a tuneless anarchy for the better part of three quarters? Does he look slow because it was shot on VHS, or because he's bored out of his skull? Why did the other defense guard anyone else on the entire field, especially when he starts every play with a large arrow pointing out exactly where he is?
