One of the players fans along the Mississippi gulf coast should keep an eye on this fall is Hancock…
CoachSpeak: King on Goff
Detrick Goff profile "He is a real asset," said Hancock Head football coach David King. "We're glad to have him for sure. "He's a bigger guy who has a lot of speed and he's real tough to bring down. You can expect to get four yards a carry just about every time he touches it because he's just so big and strong. "I am not sure if he plays running back on the next level, but he fits with us just fine." While expectations are high for Detrick, Coach King is quick to point out that the running game is a team effort. "We have a very young line, so he that might limit him some," said King. "We don't have any returning starters on the line, so they are all new guys. "It helps to have a guy back their carrying the ball like him when you have some younger guys up front because he can't get some yards on his own from time to time." Several college programs have informed the staff at Hancock that they will be following Detrick throughout the season and monitoring his progress. "Everybody loves him because of his size and his speed," said King. "I am not sure he has the hips to play running back in the SEC, but he had great hands coming out of the backfield. "When we went up to Mississippi State, they even talked to him about playing tight end up there. "In that offense, he could do really well because I am not sure there is a linebacker in the country that can cover him. "He really creates some problems for a defense."
