Check Out My Article on the NERR!

As if working for 3 different radio stations, and soon-to-be contributing to the NH Sports Page wasn't enough...now I'm writing for the New England Recruiting Report. Boy, it sure is a good thing I'm single!

Check out my article up on the NERR.

  3. I'll try to write for them as much as I can. And yes, I plan on doing similar write ups for the other classes.

  4. that would awesome if you wrote for NERR a lot because a lot of focus on that site is with prep school kids and their are great ball players in the public schools as well.

  7. A great piece of writing Jeremy. Always truthful in your assessment and reporting. Your reports on Knowles and Ratcliff are accurate however I would not have included either in your article. Despite their talents they are no longer the best players on the Winnacunnet squad nor are they college prospects. Ryan Dunn has become their best player with his great play on both sides of the ball. Plus he is a great student and has always been a model citizen. If I were a college coach I would focus my efforts on a student athlete like him rather than 2 kids who have consistently made poor decisions concerning their academics and athletics. I hope that Knowles and Ratcliff are able to get their priorities in order and have a successful season, however when it comes to recruiting them I think any college coach, whose job depends on the quality of student athlete he successfully recruits, would be taking a huge gamble by bringing them into their program.

  8. That's a good point. I purposely ranked them lower than I normally would just in case they aren't let back on the team. I guess I just figured that even though they might not play, just on talent alone they do belong in the same discussion as the other players and therefore are college prospects. You could argue that on talent alone, besides Nelson and Burt no one is a better college prospect than those two. I'm not saying I feel that way, but one could make that arguement.

    As for Dunn, I doubt he's getting recruited much for basketball. According to Coach McKenna, Rya is a better soccer player, and will likely play soccer at the division 1 level. However I do agree that he has developed into a evry good basketball player. He is a very good leader and teammate. Last year, him and Jared Gillis were th heart and sould of that team. With all of the craziness that happened with Winnacunnet last year, they were the two constants, the ones McKenna knew he could count on. McKenna told me he always tried to keep either Dunn or Gillis on the court at all times. That being said, Dunn is not as talented a player as Knowles and Ratcliffe. Not as big, fast or athletic.

  9. Hey Jeremy, you should definately do a write-up on NERR about Play of the Year candidates for class L, I, M, and S.

  10. Jeremy, is NERR really going to allow you to do write-ups for all 4 classes in NH (2010 thru 2013)? It seems that if they had separate articles for each class in each state in New England, that would be a little excessive. I'm guessing they're asking you to write on 2010, maybe 2011.

  11. I'm not sure if they'll let me do all four classes. I'm going to try though. Just sent Adam my article for the Class of 2011 earlier this morning.

  12. Jeremy you should make an article on NERR about the overall top 5 NHIAA players coming into this 09-10 season and an article about the top 3 or 5 guys you have listed as best shooters!!!!!

    they would both be very good articles and would show new england that there are legit players in the NHIAA.

  13. 8:11 Top 2 or 3 are clear, after that ten players at the same level.

    ReplyDelete
  14. 7:43, who do you feel the top 3 are?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Not sure about 7:43, but the top 3 in my opinion are Nelson, Burt and Madol.

    ReplyDelete
  16. with that top 3 that you listed jeremy (nelson, burt, and madol), maybe try and get something about them up on nerr.

  17. Well both Nelson and Burt are talked about in my "Class of 2010" article. And I submitted my article for the class of 2011 to Adam 3 days ago. Adam said it will likely be up on the site next week. Madol is talked about in that one.
