Snead is the son of former Florida Gator, Willie Snead III, who played for them in the 1980's. With offers from Cincinatti, Toledo, Ball State, Michigan State, Troy, LSU, Georgia, FIU, and Bowling Green, Snead is no lock to be in the orange and blue just yet. But be proud of our recruiting efforts. Premier athletes in that town usually end up going to MSU or Ohio State. His father swears that he has nothing to do with him working out with he Gators. "He's much better than I was.", Snead III said. As a junior for Muskegon Heights High, he played quarterback and these were his stats:
139/188 on passes for 2,937 yards and 30 touchdowns. He also rushed for 1,120 yards and 15 scores.
Now that's just crazy! What's more astonishing is that his high school is known more for their basketball prowess, while rival Muskegon High School has the football accolades. I was fortunate enough to find this video for you. I really like this kid's versatility to play both sides of the ball. As you're watching, pay particular attention to how he explodes on a kid near the line of scrimmage at the 4:40 mark. What a shame! I'll be thinking about that for at least a week.
