hawkeye Posted July 15, 2010 Share Posted July 15, 2010 These are some quotes from his high school coach.“When you time him in the 40, you don’t say “wow this kid’s a burner,” said Kirschner. “But when he gets on the field, he’s a burner. He plays football faster than he runs. He’s football fast, is what I’d say.”What really sets Doss apart for Kirschner, though, are his intangibles, the natural talents that can’t just be developed with practice. “I’ve been doing this for 24 years, and we’ve had some pretty good kids, but he may have the best hands I’ve ever seen. I’ve never seen a kid catch the back point of a ball like he does, with one hand,” Kirschner stated. “He just has a knack for getting to the ball. He has that feel.”He then followed up with a more specific example: “We’re running the option, and they’re pitching the ball to him, and there is no back in the state could have caught that pitch except for him. It was such a bad pitch, but he’s the only kid I know of that I would have ever thought could catch that, left-handed behind his back. I mean, I’m just telling you, that is the kind of kid he is.”As for some areas that Doss might need to improve on, Kirschner noted speed and strength as aspects that Doss could always improve upon in the future, as well as his ability to read defenses. However, he believes that Doss’s physical skills and preparation will allow him to make an impact for the Hoosiers immediately. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAR8ATXD-X4&feature=relatedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzQ3LmoeWbc Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
