  18. Because he hasn't done anything yet. you don't Just throw yourself on a watch list because you think your going to be good. If he was the Kicker on Varsity as a Freshman or Sophomore, Then you could back it up. Now you both can tell your friends your on a watch list. Now Matich is a real watch Lister. I have played against him and he is the real deal.I might even give you props as well Beedle, But not after nominating yourself. Nice self promotion though.

    1. Yeah youre right my bad (he did get moved up for playoffs though). and your right Matich is a real list watcher! and thank you

      Delete
  19. Your welcome.. Most soph's get moved up for playoffs. and I am sure he is a Fine kicker.. and after this season if he shows he has Leg and can kick then he would make a watch List.. But each player who makes a watch list gets graded on a few things.playing time, how much they contributed as a freshman on Varsity and or Sophomores who played Varsity in a top program, Clarkston being a D-1 school and having a lot of playing time like Beedle.. Matich.. did would and should be on a watch list and even the younger Matich who was a starter as a Freshman on Varsity at Clarkston should be on the 2015 watch List.Good Luck

  48. Tecumseh Defence has 3 Jr's Linbackers that are very good lead by Preston Pelham who is averaging 14 tackles a game, has 5 sacks, 2 fumbles and a interception for a TD at 6'3 225 he should be on the 2014 watch list.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I have seen them play and Pelham is the real deal. He should be getting looks if he not all ready. My understanding is that his brother Landan is very good Freshmen. He big 6'0-210, strong fast and i think he is a LB and bruising running back that run through tacklers...
