Congrats on the state title!

Great block at the 2:04 mark,  doing whatever it takes!

That was a great block!  We’ve all seen Worm run like a scalded dog!  That has never been a question....But that block was great to see!  You don’t see many RBs make good blocks on highlight reels.  He showed some good vision on those runs too.

Well if football doesn't work out he could probably start body building.

Evaluation

Shivers is a one-cut-and-go type running back that has the speed to take it the distance from anywhere on the field, but could project as a slot receiver as well. He obviously lacks size, but plays much bigger than his size and has no problem putting initiating the punishment. Crafty, slippery ball carrier that knows how to navigate through clutter and in tight spaces. Shivers runs patiently behind his blocks, but shows good acceleration and burst once finding his running lane. This is an all-purpose back that has a reputation for putting fans at the edge of their seats.

Unlike some of our speed backs he has the ability to run between the tackles. His short stature (low Center of gravity) and powerful build allows him to break tackles and run over people for a couple of extra yards when needed. Every play is a potential long gain because of his speed and shiftiness. He is shifty in a tight space with great vision and his short stature gives him two other advantages one he is hard for defenders to see and two many defenders hit him to high and slide off. 

I believe he may surprise people in his ability to be an every down back 185 pounds on a 5'5 to 5'7' frame depending who you are talking to is a powerful back. Along with Asa Martin and Harold Joiner I believe the future will show this is one of our better running back classes, even though I expect to see Joiner as a Hybrid RB, TE, HB and even a slot receiver at times. With KJ and KP going to the NFL this will be a much needed infusion of top notch talent. 

Now lets get a new O-Line coach and get our big Nasty's working as a powerful mean group to support our RB's and QB's

@Momma Worm aside from Worm, who are some of your fav recruits for this class? I imagine you were able to get to know a few of them this past weekend.
