VYPE dropped by North Shore today to check out the defending state champs and their offseason work outs.
It was staggering.
Coach Jon Kay and his staff have a tremendous attention to detail from game-day prep to speed and strength. It's not only the volume of athletes, but size of these kids.
What stood out…
Class of 2020 OL Damion George is in great shape at 6-foot-7 and over 300 pounds. He's more confident. He's coming out of his shell and he's wearing the Crimson Tide "A" proudly. Complimenting on the offensive line is Kansas move-in Jaeden Roberts, who has dozens of offers as an incoming junior. He is massive and goes hard.
LB Corey Flagg was in a boot and not able to participate, while QB Dematrius Davis looks even more explosive running and throwing. He looks huge.
National recruit Zachary Evans was not on hand, but in the classroom taking classes to graduate early. Coaches have been raving about his summer.
Super WR Shadrach Banks is bigger and faster. He's going to be even harder to bring down in 2019.

With a new season on the horizon, the Astros have high hopes for 2024 after coming just one game shy of being in the World Series for three consecutive seasons.
If Houston wants to get back to the Fall Classic in 2024, they're going to have to rely on their pitching. Owner Jim Crane believes the club has 8 starting pitchers when Luis Garcia and Lance McCullers Jr. return mid-season.
Which allows several of the starters to move to the bullpen and provide even more depth. Add those guys to Bryan Abreu, Ryan Pressly, and Josh Hader and you have a recipe for success.
Check out the video above as ESPN Houston's Jeremy Branham goes through the entire staff and makes his case for the Astros having the best pitching staff in baseball.
You can listen to The Killer B's with Jeremy Branham and Joel Blank every weekday on ESPN 97.5 & 92.5 from 3 pm - 6 pm!
