Bradenton, Fla. - Obi Tarwoe is a jack of all trades athlete who excelled at the BMOC 7on7 held at IMG Academy last weekend. Just a junior to be, Tarwoe has a favorite team.

At 5'10 and 180 pounds Obi Tarwoe of Bayshore High School in Florida quickly grabs ones attention when he's on the field. He's extremely quick and doesn't come off the field. He starred at safety and wide receiver for his team competing at the Big Man on Campus (BMOC) 7on7 held at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. last weekend.

Despite having good hands and terrific open field moves, Tarwoe prefers the defensive side of the ball.

"I'd rather play safety," said Tarwoe. "I hurt my shoulder last year, but I still came back and led the team in interceptions. I play a little of everything for us though, receiver, kick return, and punt return too."

Tarwoe is a member of the Class of 2014, but he should get plenty of attention before his high school career comes to a close, and he has a team in mind already.

"Buckeye. I'm a Buckeye," said Tarwoe when he was asked if he had a favorite team growing up. "I've liked them since I was young. My dad liked them, and I liked them. I don't know why really, we've just always liked Ohio State."

If Tarwoe continues to progress on the same track he's been on having just completed his sophomore season, Ohio State may end up liking Tarwoe as well.

"Buckeye. I'm a Buckeye. I don't know, since I was young, my dad watched them, and I liked them. He's from Florida, but we've just always liked Ohio State."
