Georgia JUCO looking to mine Alaska football talent

A quick check of Google Maps shows that Milledgeville, Georgia is 4,388 miles away from Anchorage, Alaska.  If you drive by car, it would take you 72 hours to travel between the two.So why is Georgia Military College, a junior college in the Peach State, heading above the Lower 48 to check-out high school football talent?  With only 30 high schools in the entire state, it wouldn’t seem like the most likely recruiting trip, but GMC head coach Ross Robinson doesn’t see it that way.

According to KTVA-TV, Ross and his staff has spent the last six years traveling to South Anchorage High School to help improve the skills of the Wolverine players.  Since opening in 2006, South has won three state championship under head coach John Lewis, including the 2014 Big School title.

While no Alaska high school football player has signed to play with the Bulldogs, that may not be the case for long.
