Reno recruit can kick

I was making my routine check of the Hillsdale incoming freshman list and noticed three new names today.

After immediately beginning to "Google" these guys, the first link for 6-3 169 Eric Johnson from Galena HS in Reno, NV looked very promising.

"Athlete of the Week
ERIC JOHNSON Galena, Football, Senior. Johnson scored all 30 points for the Grizzlies in their upset of Douglas on Friday. The receiver/kicker had three touchdown catches, three extra points and three field goals, including a 50-yarder in the fourth quarter."

While Colin McGreevy was nearly perfect on extra points, he didn't show that kind of range and it would be nice to have someone at least handle kickoffs that can put it in the endzone once in a while.

Also added to the list this week are South Bend (IN) Marian QB-DB Thomas Marian and 6-4 270 OL Robert Pfeiffer from Toledo St. Francis.

I have a inquiry for the webmaster/admin here at

May I use part of the information from this post above if I provide a link back to this website?

Many high school kickers can kick 50 yarders off a tee. The challenge is to kick them without it. Colin McGreevy was given very few chances over 30 yards, missed 2 and had 2 blocked and made the rest with ease, but has made as long as 60 at practice with very few misses. As far as kickoffs go, the coach decides where and how he should kick. Colin has put the ball through the end zone when he is allowed to kick from the center of the field and straight rather than from hash mark to numbers. He was also supposed to be second to the recruit from last year, Ettringham. Don't count this kid out, he's a fighter and has high potential.

Nobody is counting Colin out. I am hoping we get a chance to see that potential and growth next season. Colin's contributions to the program are definitely appreciated.
