Sort of random, but not really. I'm still blown away by how gifted a runner Barry Sanders is, and how many college programs missed out on him.

Barry Sanders was without question the most elusive runner ever

Eh, that's not really all that impressive when you watch other high school tapes that look similar. Most kids look like the second coming of Barry Sanders in high school. Then you see them in college and wonder where it all went. What was impressive about Barry is that he continued to be that hard to tackle in the NFL.
It's a nice find though.

Yeah the tape is cool because you know who that player is going to be in four years.

To bad he had to play for the Lions.
So smooth in the open field even at that age, but you can find other guys HS tape like this.

Barry wasn't even a starter until his 4th game game of his senior season at Wichita North HS. Impressive first start too - 27 carries, 274 yds and 3 TDs. I remember Barry Switzer saying Oklahoma St getting him was a gift to them. Looking forward to seeing his son next season.
