At the Opening last Sunday, offensive lineman George Sell was not as tall as most and not as heavy as most, but he was athletic and he can run. He will be a three year starter at Kenston High School. Kenston, by the way, won the OHSAA Division 3 State Football Championship in
George measures at just over 6’4 and weighs 260. This is good, because he will get bigger. Dad played basketball at St Joseph’s in Philadelphia and is 6’9. George is not fat. Plenty of time to get bigger. He weighed 215 as a starting offensive lineman his 10th grade year.
What I like most is that he can run. Played basketball thru his freshman year. This spring is working with the track team. Throws shot and discus. Both are good for explosion and balance.
On his HUDL Hi-lites, he runs well. Blocks well on the 2nd level. Blocks well in space. Like his explosion and his foot quickness. Sets up well in pass pro. Good ability to mirror block pass rusher. Stays with his block. Like his aggressiveness and his effort.
George can bend his knees, but he plays high at times. Improve his power angles. Also needs to work at balance at times. Like most lineman, he needs to work on re-direct or change of direction. If anything, he is too aggressive at times.
I like his attitude. Biggest advice he would give to a freshman is to work as hard as possible in the weight room. “After you think you are tired work, some more.” He feels if he have a do-over, he work harder in strength training as a 9th grader.
George carries a 3.6 in the classroom. Plans to study some area of business. Definite major undecided.
Most of the Mid American Conference schools have “offered” him. The bigger schools have been in contact. Wake Forest being one. His visit to Wake Forest went well.
Talked about the importance of culture when selecting a school. Talked about the importance of doing his research on the the football program, as well as the school. Talked about the “fit.” Really believe, George will not be rushed.
Looking forward to watching George play this fall. My kind of offensive lineman. Over 6’4 with potential to get bigger. Already carrying 260. Needs to continue to get bigger/stronger, but he can move his feet. Good footwork. Best of all, he is aggressive and tough. Plays hard.
I could see him playing center in college. Maybe guard. But he gets to 6’6, could even be a tackle. Best of all, he can move his feet.
