This just demonstrates how our local heros can be swamped by competition at higher levels. By the way, this can be true of our academic elite as well. So after all the small town hoopla, the real world can overwhelm those who coasted through Wise Co schools.

You previous two posters are idiots who apparently know nothing about football. Did you see his stats??? 24 of 35 passes for 254 yards, no interceptions.

THAT IS DAMN GOOD. REALLY GOOD.

He just didn't have any support from the rest of the team. May I suggest you two spend some more time watching football. He was smart by leaving Tech, I did a lot of research on the Red Raiders, and I'm pretty sure he would have never started during his college career. He could't transfer to another Division 1-A team because he would have lost a year of eligibility.

You are so clueless....You have a better chance to make it big if you get playing time. Its better to get playing time at a Division I-AA school than it is to stand on the sidelines at a division I-A school. Pro scouts look at all of the schools. It's not burying yourself in a hole if you perform. If he continues to put up numbers like he did last week, scouts will notice, regardless of whether the rest of the team is winning or losing. I applaud his decision.

Previos anon is right. It is much better to get the playing time than stand on the sideline at a bigger school. Look at some pro football rosters that list the schools that the players attended.....you will see that a good number of them are smaller schools.
