As a sophomore D.J. Fluker, was part of one of the most feared defensive lines in the state…
Foley a hotbed for talent
Watson believes running back No. 12 Marcus Washington, 6-foot-0, 201 lbs., 4.6 40, and safety No. 20 Max Woerner, 5-foot-11, 193 lbs., 4.5 40 have what it takes to earn scholarship offers with solid senior campaigns in 2009.
As for the big left tackle he's losing to graduation, Watson said Fluker is doing "real good" in his preparation for the college gridiron.
Watson reports, "D.J. had a scope on his shoulder done last Thursday. He should be fully rehabbed by the start of camp."
The arthroscopic surgery was done to repair scar tissue on a left shoulder injury D.J. Fluker suffered earlier in his high school career.
When asked what Fluker was measuring Watson said last time they checked he tipped the scales at 355 and was standing 6-foot-7, quite an assignment for any defensive lineman.
Watson said Fluker is on the right track to qualify to be eligible to play next season at Alabama.
"He knows what he has to have in finishing up," said Watson. "He's been working hard in the classroom and been doing real well. I think he's in good shape."
On Saturday, May 16th at Foley's Ivan Jones Stadium, Watson and the Lions will host the 2009 Spring Jamboree featuring Foley, Hoover, Fairhope, Davidson, Theodore, and Blount. Foley will take on both Blount and Hoover in the exhibition.
