Good Job B-Mac!

With a 3.86 and the Ross name; if he can produce some good numbers I agree; I see his recruitment picking up! He has solid size and speed(not 4.3 but how many truly do). I wish him and The Stallions nothing but the best as well as the Ross family!

Thanks Brett!

I was privileged to see Derek Ross play several times during his senior season at Northwestern. Having watched High School football in South Carolina for 6 decades now, I will say that he was the best athlete that I have ever seen play the QB position. I have seen most of the great ones from the 1960s through the present. I have seen better passers, better runners, but not better athletes. Watching him scramble when under duress, only to end up making a spectacular play was commonplace. I was really disappointed that he never "made" it in college or the pros. Sure he had his moments, but he was never quite able to put it all together and keep it all together. But he most definitely was a human highlight star on the football field. If his son can even come close, he will also have people talking about him for decades.
