Intro: Tom may be just slightly undersized for a linebacker at the next level but he doesn’t play undersized. He has a love for working hard and for the game of football that is unmatched by most. Tom’s dream school is The Ohio State University. While distance is not a factor in his school decision what is a factor is the campus atmosphere. Tom hopes to be a carpenter and start his one business after his football days are over. He credits his mother as being the most influential woman in his life. Accodring to him he credits her because, “cause shes a single parent and she was always there when I need her.” Growing up he watched Vernon Gholston and idolized Brian Dawkins. Tom is working hard to get ready for the upcoming football season. This upcoming season he is most looking forward to “winning state championship and committing to a good college.” When asked what he brings to a college football program he replied with, “leadership and a good attitude.”

Analysis: Tom is the type of linebacker that just “itches” to make a play. A few things he needs to work on is increasing speed, tackling and making quicker decisions when the play is developing. Once he commits to attacking the run he goes full-force. He never quits on a play and gives it his all until the whistle is blown. Tom is the type of player that is always around the ball at the end of a play. What he may lack in speed he does make up for in lateral movement. I expect him to have a big senior season.
