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
"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
