RB Savon Seward
30 carries for 278 yards and 3 TD
3 catches for 148 yards and 2 TD
33 touches for 426 yards and 5 TD
Seems like a pretty good year for some high school players, right?. Guess what? 2010 RB Savon Seward of Cypress Lake High School did this is ONE GAME last year against Estero High School. I know, I know, Estero went 0 for-whatever last year and gave up 500 points on defense, but still. That's unreal. Seward finished 2008 with 178 carries for 1431 yards and 16 TD. Couple that with 29 grabs for 707 yards, and you have got yourself a monster year that totals 2138 yards and 22 TD. If any of you guys play high school fantasy football, this might be a guy to look at. Have you seen that ESPN commercial? "Championship!"
As I flipped on the film, what else can you say but WOW. How the hell is this kid not being recruited? Honestly, he's only 5'7 175? Fine with me. I don't care if he's 4'1, this kid can flat out tote the rock. He is listed as running a 4.45 40 on Scout, and from watching the first 3 plays of his film, how can you dispute that? He outruns everyone every time he sees the slightest bit of daylight. As his video progresses he shows more signs of being a decent cut-back runner, but for the most part he is a down hill, north and south type of running back. The only question that may linger is his ability to break tackles. He is down on first contact a few times.
You also have to love the kids hands. When he is in the slot running a go route, running the wheel, or simply flaring out of the backfield, not only does he always create separation, but he catches the ball with ease. You can tell from his 707 yards in reception yardage that he has no problem reeling it in and making a play.
Honestly, I am pretty high on this kid. Especially in the NCAA, we have seen that you can be an effective D1 RB under 6' tall. Tell me what you guys think. I have a comments link under my articles which is rarely used. You don't even have to sign in! Post under anonymous and tell me what you guys think. I think he plays at the next level EASILY. His speed and running ability translate to big plays on Saturday. Who agrees?
This was the only video I could find on the kid, and it has explicit rap lyrics. If you are under the age of 18, please get parental consent before viewing. Also, you might just want to put it on mute regardless if you are under age.
