Pour One to Watch
Sam Pour, a 6-foot-0, 185-pound defensive back from Rose Hill High in Kansas City, Mo., has been a star the last two years at Nebraska's summer camp sessions. Nebraska is still a school that he is looking at seriously, but there are some other programs that are starting to take an interest in his talents. "Connecticut and Nebraska are showing the most interest," Pour informed. "I have been talking with the coaches at Nebraska since my freshman season. I talk to all of the coaches up there. Nebraska shows me a lot of love. Their cornerback coach is like a mentor for me." "I am also receiving interest from Missouri, Kansas and Kansas State. Pour has the size to be a safety on the next level, but he has not ruled out playing corner. "I am playing outside linebacker now, and I love to come up and make a big tackle, but I think I will be playing safety on the next level," Pour informed. "I think I could play the corner, but I would say safety." As a youngster in Gana, Africa, Pour never expected his future to be in football. He always just assumed that he would be a soccer star. "I had never even played football before I moved to the United State," Pour informed. "I was always playing soccer. I am very good at soccer, but really I got to big and too strong to play." "When I was in the middle school I was in the weight room and I bench pressed 210 pounds, one of the players noticed me an introduced me to the coach. I have been playing football for almost seven years now and I am still learning." Pour may have not grown up in following American football, but he found two great players to try and pattern his game after. "I would say I look at Ray Lewis and Ed Reed of the Baltimore Ravens," Pour said when asked if there were any players he tries to pattern his game after. "Those are the two guys I always watch. I love how aggressive they are. That is one thing about my game. I never give up and I love to hit." Pour reports that he compiled three interceptions and one interception return for a touchdown as a junior in 2007. He also now bench presses an impressive 320 pounds and squats 500.
