I can't wait!

In recruiting there are times you get a good player and just can't wait to see him in your home teams uniform.  Then there are those times where you get a good kid and just can't wait for the first time they see the field.  They're the feel good story.  There are lots of examples I could give to support both.  On one side, you have raw, unadulterated talent.  On the other, you have a heart warming story of achievement or overcoming adversity.  Both have their place in sports.  And those that have both are truly a rare breed.

My new favorite player, who has yet to even sign his letter of intent, is Sam Acho.  This kid has amazing talent, but even more appropriate for a Mack Brown kid, he is a great young man.  Todd Wills of the Dallas Morning News writes a great piece on Sam.  It is well worth the time to read this.  I just can't wait to see Sam wearing Burnt Orange.
