Luke Franklin - Class of 2023
One of the most common questions I get from parents is, "Why should we consider playing tournament football?"
My response starts with an explanation and ends with the reality.
 
"As a parent I want my son to start varsity as a freshmen. This is a lofty goal and translates into thousands of dollars for camps, combines, training, and All American games. When I found out I could have my son try out for a team that would be comprised of the best-of-the-best then I was sold. I got a return on the investment because of the extra practices, games, scrimmages, and superior competition. I am a football fanatic and realize the importance of practicing when the rest of the state has forgotten about football. I do not care if my son ever plays a down or plays his favorite position. I just care about the experience and if this experience can help him get a shot on Friday night. One extra year of Friday Night Lights is worth it 100%. My son Rylan started at tight end his first year and had never played tight end in his life. He was a safety and running back. The second year for the 8th Grade Team Indiana FBU he started at safety. Bottom line is my son started varsity as a freshmen and is All State as a sophomore at safety. He is also a running back in High School and scored 14 touchdowns. This is why you sign up for Team Indiana, Team Indiana FBU, or Team Indiana Select. No matter which team you choose your son will get the experience and high level competition he needs to get onto the field earlier", (Cole, 2014).  Add a comment

The quest to field the best team in the country is no easy task. Scouting the "best-of-the-best"  is not easy when there are other programs recruiting in the same area and thus saturating the talent pool. The search for players becomes a ground roots approach and canvassing the entire state is a must. 

During my Indiana Select scouting routine;  I decided to contact a youth director Michael Dabney for some help.  Dabney is a youth sports advocate from my hometown of Bloomington Indiana and is a person I can trust. Michael Dabney managed to recommend several players to Indiana Select, all of which turned out to be tremendous contributors from the start of the season to the end.

I plan on writing articles about all the players and have only gotten one written so far about stand out DE/TE Tysen Smith to this point. (More Players articles to come)

Miquan Grace- #1 Safety In Ohio - Cincinnati's own  

GRACE4
Miquan Grace is a very talented safety that has the speed, size, technique, and football I.Q. to attract several Division 1 colleges. Grace is not just "Big Plays", "Big Stats", and "Big Hype"; grace has the poise of a seasoned veteran and handles the spotlight very well. This top recruit is humbled by all the attention and continues to train hard in and out of the classroom.
 
Grace is 6'0 feet tall and weighs 190 pounds which gives him the necessary size to compete at the collegiate level. The ability to make plays when they count has become his trademark and this makes Grace a true "Gamer". Miquan leads his Winton Woods High School team in interceptions. The ability to make reads in traffic, protect against the deep ball, and close on the speed guy's in space makes Grace stand out and compare to other top recruits.
 
When scouts look at a prospects profile and evaluate the full package; speed is alluring, valuable, and often intoxicating. The speed is a foundation for the ball skills and makes it easier to diagnose a play & recover on the fly.

COLE CUNDIFF

Cole Cundiff is just one of those players you love to have on your team. This student athlete always works hard in practice, sponges up information, and is eager to learn new technique. Cole was recruited to play for the Indiana Select 6th grade tournament team. When we got the group together he stood out because of his size. He is 6' tall and weighs 160 pounds. This is unusual for this age group and I immediately walked to him and asked his age.

SMITH BLEECHR

SMITH

Tysen Smith has a physical prowess and stands 6' tall and has plenty of room to grow. Smith is 12 years old, this young 7th grader plays both football and basketball for his middle school. To give you an idea of the dexterity of this student athlete, he dribbles the ball like a point guard, but plays in the post where size does matter. Smith has handles and will cross you up & break your ankles on the court. When you see him take the field and pad up; the demeanor changes and he becomes a one stop shop for highlights. He is a player to watch develop and a strong mid-west talent.
