During our 35-day Sea to Shining Sea road trip, we spent a significant amount of time driving through and staying-in New Mexico. In fact, we loved Santa Fe so much that we actually stayed there a couple of days heading east and a couple of days heading home during the Thanksgiving holiday. Trisha Hoffman and I know that we’ll be heading back for an extended visit someday soon.
It’s a beautiful state in ways that words sometimes can’t describe. When it comes to high school football, evidently college recruiters are finding it hard to quantify its beauty. According to a story I read on Bleacher Report about Rio Rancho quarterback Easton Bruere. The 6-3, 200 senior led his school to a perfect 13-0 season and a New Mexico Class 6A title with over 4,500 yards passing and 49 touchdowns with only six interceptions, but as of now, he hasn’t received one scholarship offer.
The story – The Best Football Prospect Nobody Has Ever Heard Of – written by Sanjay Kirpalani has received 1.1 million reads.
Here’s hoping Kirpalani’s story opens some eyes and someone takes a chance on Bruere next Wednesday on National Signing Day.
