Scouting: Gulfport vs. Vicksburg

Posted Sep 16, 2010


The Gulfport Admirals made their second consecutive appearance in the Red Carpet Bowl and this year they brought home the trophy. GHS is beginning to produce some college level prospects once again and it shows on the playing field. The future is bright for the Admirals and signing day media events may soon be a regular occurrence.

Cortez Hartzog - Defensive line Gulfport: Cortez is a strong player and it appears he has made more of a commitment to the weight room.

He has the ability to be a dominant player on the high school level, but it seems he is hesitant to always fully exert that ability. This is probably the one area where he needs to be more consistent.

Hartzog may go a series without making a big play and then when the team needs something good to happen, he finds a way to make that play. When he gets his mind made up and get his motor cranked up, he is getting into the backfield.

He has good hands and good feet. He makes a lot of his plays by simply being the better player at the point of attack. Once he learns a wider variety of techniques and gets into a college weight room, he has the chance to be a solid contributor on the college level.

Jamison Goins - Linebacker Gulfport: Goins is a 2012 prospect that most on the Mississippi gulf coast need to take note of. Jamison certainly looks the part on the field and off.

Jamison is a hard worker and he plays until the whistle. He plays middle linebacker for the Admirals, but with a little more growth he could mature into a defensive end.

For now Goins is lining up in a two point stance and making plays. He has no qualms about taking on a block and filling a gap. He seems to understand his role in the process and is a good team defense type of player.

Travon Travis - Wide receiver Gulfport: Travis is another rising prospect for the Admirals. He has great speed and is explosive when he gets the ball into his hands.

Travon is rarely tackled by the first defender which makes him especially dangerous in space and on the edge. A bubble screen to him is just about always going to net first down yardage if not more.

Travis does not have great size, but he could wind up as a slot receiver in a spread type offense. With his skill set, I would not rule out a move to corner. He has the speed, quickness and change of direction to handle the responsibilities that go along with man to man coverage.

Antwar Ashley - Running back Gulfport: Antwar is an intriguing prospect. He has very good speed, but not ideal size. He has good hands and is a better than average target out of the backfield.

Ashley does not shy away from contact, but he is slippery enough to make people miss in the open field. He is difficult to contain and it is important to get him stopped before he really gets going.

He got stronger as the game went along and he knows how to finish. He is a very efficient runner who does not leave a lot of yards out there due to being undisciplined.
