Illinois senior makes recruiting tape with only one play and lots of bench time


by Jeff Fisher

I’ve been spending a lot of time lately learning about the Law or Attraction and the Power of Positive Thinking.  Today, I saw a story from The Sporting News that embodies just those principles.

Jack Lenihan, a senior wide receiver from Barrington High School in Illinois, made a recruiting tape that shows a lot of creativity.  Lenihan only played in one game this year, and in that game he dropped a pass.  Otherwise, Jack spent a lot of time on the sidelines, which is “highlighted” in his Hudl video that you can watch above.  He’s titled it “The Lenihan Factor”.

In today’s world of videos going viral, I wouldn’t be surprised if Jack Lenihan gets lots of views.  Even if he doesn’t, I wanted to support him with a short story.
