At The Drop, we’ve always been about how it’s done rather than what’s done. You have to be smooth with it, stylish. In football recruiting circles, many of the biggest, most important names will be offensive linemen or drop-back quarterbacks who can really sling it. But, honestly, how many of those videos are you watching on YouTube?
The most exciting players to watch in high school football — actually at any level — are the speedy guys who make people miss. Jukes moves. Spins. Taking screen passes to the house. That’s what gets the blood flowing. Think LeSean McCoy or Andre Ellington or Reggie Bush. It’s a special gene that only a few players have, and it’s helped turn people like Barry Sanders into legends. Sanders wasn’t just great and memorable because he rushed for a lot of yards and then called it quits too early. Fans of the game still love him because he was a highlight reel waiting to happen and could spring any play into a long touchdown run.
With college football in full swing, and with many of high school’s best prospects committing to play somewhere at the next level, we went diggin’ in the YouTube crates to find the craziest, most mind-blowing highlight reels for many of the best players. Remember — this doesn’t necessarily mean these are the best high school prospects in America. Nope, only some of the most exciting. Make sure you remember names like Josh Sweat, Kyler Murray, and Nate Craig. They are the next generation of playmakers.
Here are 10 High School Football Players With the Craziest Highlight Reels.
