The Jordan Beetdiggers traveled 1,800 miles to play in the Herbstreit Football Series to play against Ohio power Massillon. The trip was well worth it for coach Alex Jacobson and his squad as they won 27-24. Here is a closer look at some of the Beatdigger standouts.

14 Alex Hart 6-2/170 QB 2010

Here is another name you can list with the top class of 2010 quarterback prospects. Massillon had no answer for the arm or legs of Hart. The Massillon defense had trouble stopping the Jordan passing attack and when they did get good coverage Hart would take off running on them. Hart never got rattled and always kept his poise. The great quarterbacks always want the ball in their hands when the game is on the line and Hart is no different. Anytime he had to lead his squad he got under center and marched them down field. He has an above average arm and is accurate. He showed the ability to make all the throws.

62 Vyncent Jones 6-4/305 OG/DT 2009

Jones is a prime example of why Utah can beat teams like Michigan. The Utes get great players and Jones is headed their way next season. This kid is as good as any guard I have seen anywhere in the country and he could play at any school he wants. He played both ways the entire game in 80+ degree temperatures and never seemed to tire. He showed outstanding get off and explosion. The smaller Massillon linemen had no answer for him. He is deceptively quick also, you’d see him get off the ball and he’d be on a linebacker at the second level before you knew it. The Utes landed a prize in Vyncent Jones.

64 Kyle Johnson 6-4/305 DT/OL 2009

Johnson is listed on as an offensive guard and he is a good one, but where he really caught my eye was as a defensive tackle. Like Jones, he played both ways the entire game and never seemed to tire. Massillon could not run up the middle and Johnson was the reason why. He is an awesome run stuffer and like Jones he is deceptively quick for his size. He hasn’t gotten a lot of interest, mainly because he is coming back from an ACL injury, but look for that to change.

58 Tyler Larsen 6-5/285 OT/DL 2009

Larsen is a stud as well, but it’s hard to shine playing beside guys like Jones and Johnson. Larsen is a house, but actually looks skinny. He could add 30-40 pounds to his frame with relative ease. He has outstanding feet and really gets after it.

2 Braden Hammond 5-9/150 WR 2010

Not a real big guy, but he can scoot. He excels at running the short, quick routes and getting yards after the catch. He will be a fun guy to watch and see how he progresses over the next two years.

54 Garrett Blaisdell 6-1/205 K 2009

Blaisdell nailed two big field goals including the game winner and never got rattled. The field goals were 32 and 36-yards, but both would have been good from a lot longer distances. He also got good depth on his kickoffs.
