Stay tuned. I'll be posting them daily as the construction progresses. 

Sounds like an attempt at a business partnership for you. All in pursuit of football glory (with teenagers). And all under the guise of "high school education". 🤑

A.K.A. calpreps' computer ratings produced by someone known as Ned.  A ratings list clearly subjective in nature in regards to how teams from differing states are compared. Got it.

They’re playing IMG, SFA, GC, SPP and SJC among others. And Lakeland won’t even schedule one of those teams!! Sad.

They are one of 250+ clients that call PGL home. Call it whatever you like.

Lakeland is a public high school-a real school, not a fraud masquerading as a school- that's not allowed to openly recruit or house players. So, they don't figure to mess around with the wealthy private schools, much less the poser academies openly recruiting and housing players from around the country.

Is it possible that top-10 HS teams play D2 or D3 schools to enhance their status and get ready for their playoffs?

I know it sounds hard to do, but in "The Longest Yard," that game didn't need to be sanctioned.

see, now you're thinking.  The key is to go unhinged and then ramp it up.  if you need substances, then take them.  as DiCaprio said, people only believe what you tell them.  say something, baby

Liberalism is collapsing as we speak. The Hard Left is cannibalizing itself.  What's coming to take its place?  I don't know.  Have at it.  Make a statement.  Make a buck.  Law of the jungle but with handouts and social justice.

Aaron Pryor--perpetual motion. 

"Remember Frederick the Great: l'audace, l'audace, toujours l'audace!"  (Used in the movie "Patton" though this is really a misquotation the the phrase was first said by Danton.  Some say Napoleon.)  "Audacity, audacity, always audacity."

Is he kind of like one of those basketball shoe guys who tiptoes around the law regarding getting kids to certain places?

Well, he appeared somehow connected to the Grayson team that magically stacked up a few years back and ran through the state with Jeff Herron as the coach for one year. Then it appeared that after all the blowback and everything, he kinda faded from there as his kid graduated I guess. 

Then he started dipping his fingers into other places around the state, like Colquitt a little via twitter contact with the boys and retweeting them out to colleges and stuff, which pissed Rush off at the time, as Rush used the college contact thing as one of his tools to help keep the team under his control. When others started dipping in there he lost some of his grip on the kids. 

They had some words through the media actually. Rush dropping some stuff in an interview or two without saying the man's name, and then Kwatt coming back on twitter with some stuff, for a while it seemed a little tense. 

Here they are now, a foursome with DeVaughn, Rush, KWatt and GSB...

All bullshit aside, he's pretty connected in the ATL metro, and a lot of places in the state and even the south east. 

He's a good hire for what they're trying to do. It's just interesting dynamics imo after having seen the past interactions. 

Strange bed fellows I guess one could say.

He’s connected as anyone in the state of Georgia. He’s from South Florida and knows the Miami landscape very well. He played at Deerfield Beach and then WR at Boston College. He knows football. He knows the national landscape of all the teams we discuss on here. From Valor Christian to Duncanville. He knows the game and more importantly he’s been getting kids in front of colleges for YEARS with MAJOR results. His son was a 2019 four star recruit (played this year as a freshman corner at Texas) He was the youth coach of a TON of elite prospects in the class of 2019 many years ago, that’s how he got connected. He mentored and coached elite stars across the metro area and that propelled him into a recruiting coordinator position. His GOAL is getting kids to play college football, whether it’s D1, D2, or NAIA. He’s been helping families find a college home for a long time now. He most recently worked for the Under Armour All American Game  

People have a million opinions about him. Some true, some not. Here’s three FACTS about KW: he’s an amazing father, he’s genuinely a good guy, and he’s put a ton kids in college football. And he’s about to put a whole lot more

Funny how Grayson has a newly ranked QB, new WR, and OL this semester and my guy is nowhere in sight. Must be someone new to blame this year 🤷🏻‍♂️

Social media, 7v7, and camps bring kids together stacking teams. PARENTS make that decision. Not KW. Not the kid. Parents wanting exposure and rings for their baby. Peachtree Ridge, Allatoona, Roswell, Marietta. These families didn’t move because an outsider said so, they relocated because they wanted to win a championship. These kids relocating already have major offers
