I know that HUDL and recruiting journalism have turned the recruiting world upside down and helped put smaller schools on the map. Ever looked at any old film or just from playing with them, think anyone off that team would have gotten an offer that didn't, or would have gotten a bigger offer, if we had technology to get film out like now?
No question players like Ken Irvin (who wanted to go to UGA bad) would have been a big time prospect. Had one offer to Memphis and played CB in the NFL for 11 years.
I remember listening to the HUDL guys give a sale speech to me and some other guys back about 4 years ago in Orlando. I was like "whatever' schools are not going to pay that for film swapping.
100 million later those guys were right!
What about tony(too small?)? Bo?

Would have helped them with exposure for sure.
Plus this day and age, lot more teams in the state. Lagrange, Shorter, Mercer, Berry etc
I remember going with Tony and Bo to meet with a college coach in the office. Coach about fell out when he saw Tony's arms.
tony came out of the womb built like that. I remember seing him in about the 6th grade and dude was already a ball of muscle.
Knew him for a lot of years. Never heard him speak an ill word about anyone...but he would knock your $@$&& in the dirt on the football field. Never forget when someone told me he was killed. He's Probly riding a wheely in heaven.

Big whiff by Dicky Clark..4.8 forty as per Dicky..I remember Horne telling him that he had football speed with pads..Bottom line-we lost to Arky in 93 at home-Irvin blocked 3 punts in one game against Arkansas to lead the upset.

4-Punts and holds the NCAA record for that in one game!
For every Ricky Williams or Ty Detmer, there is Ken Irvin or a Jason Davis that holds one of college footballs more unique records.
Ah, the old memory bank failed me again..4 Punts-That one might stand for a while.
It would have helped quite a few from Early County in the late 80's and early 90's.There were some studs on the field that night in Blakely from both teams.
Yes there was
Who was there? Goff and Dye? cant remember. But, I remember they were sitting on the wrong side. One of the best games ive ever witnessed. Glory days.
I remember Yarborough went down, I thought we were gonna roll, and the other back took it to the house on the next play. that kid was all over the place that night. #45 I think. I think Ted Y died soon after high school. That team also had a big tight end I thought would go D1.
Ted got shot while starting as a true freshman at auburn, but was shot in Blakely. He finished his career at troy state. He now works with under privileged youth's as a counselor.
The tight end went on to Georgia Southern and ended up starting as a sophomore at offensive guard.
Both tackles went on to play college ball, one at troy the other at valdosta state.
If I remember correctly, 11 guys went on to play some level of college ball.
Arguably the most talented group ever at Early County. Ed Pilcher started his legacy with EC before moving on to TCC.
Wow. Bet they didn't have 200 fans there. We drove five hours and had three times the fans. Kinda felt bad for the players.
