Recruiting Update: Douglas County

Colorado Bound Lineman Ethan Adkins

Douglas County Head Coach talks about D1 bound Ethan Adkins and Luke Diehl along with many of his other players who signed letters of intent today.

Over the past two seasons, Douglas County High School has compiled a sterling record.  This year, Douglas County made it to the semifinals and of course, last season they brought home the state title.  At the core of this success, was a great group of players, many of whom, today signed with colleges across the state and nation.  Earlier we had a chance to talk to Douglas County Head Coach Jeff Ketron about his signees.


Coach Ketron on University of Pennsylvania signee QB Keiffer Garton:


"Leadership, I have never seen leadership qualities on any kid at any level like Keiffer, you can't coach that."


Coach Ketron on Colorado State bound LB Luke Diehl:


"Confidence and raw toughness, he played the last two years dinged up. He is like old west cowboy tough."


Coach Ketron on Colorado bound offensive lineman Ethan Adkins:


"He is going to be a guard at Colorado.  He plays basketball and weighs 282 pounds with no fat.  Big kid, good athlete, flexible.  He was just begun to reach his potential, he could be 325 pounds, his best is yet to come."


Coach Ketron on DB Lyle Brown who will attend the University of Montana:


"Unbelievable speed and athletic ability, he can jump out of the roof, he has a thirty-nine inch vertical jump, runs a 10.8 in the one hundred meters.  Tremendous upside."


Along with this group of DI and DIAA recruits, WR Mike Whitney, LB Josh Ruff, DE Ian Reither, Rover Tucker Reddy, WR Andy Nappo, will all go to the Colorado School of Mines.  TE Curtis Prock will play at Western State and DT Mike White, who had numerous DII offers, is walking on at Colorado State for the chance to play DI ball.  It is interesting to note and a credit to the Douglas County players that the team GPA this year was 3.49.  Great Job and good luck in college.
