ESPN has been showing a of HS football as they usually do around this time due to the lack of College or Pro ball. We at 2ndnShort have no problem with this and as long as there is football on TV we will be watching it.
HS football is great because you get to see kids that might turn out to be stars at the college level and sometimes even NFL players completely dominate on the HS turf.
Baxton Miller is one of those kids.
And to tell you about him is our good friend Paulie Grouper...
Braxton Miller the # 1 QB recruit in the nation made his ESPNU debut last night as his Huber Heights Wayne team lost in a last minute thriller to traditional Ohio High School football powerhouse Cincinnati Moeller.
While Moeller prevailed by dominating the second half behind the tough running of tailback Tucker Skove, Braxton Miller put on a show in the games first few minutes running for touchdowns of 27, 75 and 21 yards. Not sure if he can make all the throws yet but this kid is certainly a special athlete.
Tune in this Sunday to ESPNU @ 3:30 to see how Miller holds up against a tough Canton McKinley Bulldog team led by fellow OSU commit Steve Miller, who just happens to be the #3 defensive end recruit in the nation.
Don’t forget to check out the noon game Sunday on ESPN featuring Cleveland power house Glenville (home of current NFL players Ted Ginn, Troy Smith, Donte Whitner and Pierre Woods) against Dwyer High School out of Palm Beach, FL.
And as always, some highlights...
While your at it you might want to watch the guy Braxton will be filling in for in the future. Here is Terrelle Pryor dunking on some poor kid in HS
