Kicking It With Cody Green

(this is a follow-up to the previous post)

According to Scouts, Inc. at ESPNU:

“On the hoof, Green looks about as good as anybody in this class physically. He is big, rangy and very athletic with long arms and legs. Looks like Terrelle Pryor in terms of measurables. However, we are not convinced he will remain at quarterback at the next level and may be better suited as a wide receiver, H-back or possibly find a home on defense. Right now he is more advanced as a runner and athlete than he is as a passer. Is a smooth, long striding prospect that shows good initial quickness and escape-ability in the pocket. Works out of the shotgun and is an ideal read-option player.”

This trainee working for Scouts, Inc. might be on to something. If for some reason quarterback doesn’t work out in college for Cody Green, there is always placekicker. In Saturday’s Class 4A Division II state semifinal game, Cody Green kicked the game winning 24-yard field goal with 4 second left to give Dayton High a 31-28 win over Kerrville Tivy. (for the game recap, click here.) Green’s Dayton Broncos were trailing 28-21 when he lead them on a 10-play, 78-yard touchdown drive with 1:50 remaining. After a Tivy turnover, Green rushed twice down to the 7-yard line before he attempted the game winning field goal (which happened to be the team’s only field goal attempt on the year.) Dayton (13-1) will play Sulfur Springs (13-2), who is lead by Tyrik Rollison – the #2 dual-threat quarterback in this year’s recruiting class, this Saturday at 2 p.m. in San Antonio’s Alamodome for the Texas Class 4A Division II State Championship.

As for what the future holds, Alex Henery need not worry.
