Down below is the first ever scout sheet we have ever created. Before downloading it, read through some of our explanations and clarifications to understand our perspective and goals.
What am I buying (and why?)
The scout sheet features nearly 100 of the tops quarterbacks, runningbacks, and wide receivers returning for the 2019 season. We have organized them with simple metrics and our only personal scouting was a chip-system in which we explain in the PDF. There is no write-ups- strictly a spreadsheet of the top players in the state with their information. Also, we have including each player’s highlight film hyperlinked in (if one was available). So, why are we charging $7.99 to the public? Within the next month, as we polish this group, we are also going to ask for other info from players (that won’t be publicly viewable). Once we believe we have everything ready to go, we are sending this amazing set of info to as many colleges near and fear on all levels as we can. They will be able to scout the Mountain State quickly with convenient metrics, easy access to highlight film, and hopefully player’s direct contact information.
For players on it…
We are not sending this sheet out for several weeks. Update your film and update us on any errors in schools, height, weight, etc. A big thing we want is for you to send us your contact information (reliable phone number, email, or social media with the messages open). This will not be on the same sheet available to the public and will strictly be to allow coaches direct access to you. Coaches can send this information to us as well. On top of this all, we want you all to let us know if you will be attending (not just invited too) The Appalachian Prep Combine and/or the 304 Elite Camp. We will add this into the final sheet so coaches can know if they can see you in person at these events.
For players not on it…
First off, we have moved several players to one primary position based on their ability. Example: a first team all-state runningback might have a better chance at a higher level as a defensive back. Come to us if you are worried we completely left you out- most likely, you will be on the other side of the ball or moved to a Combo (college fullback, tight end, H-back type). There is a possibility we saw your film and either decided there was not enough substance, not enough film, or some fault that avoided you from being placed on it. If we put 1000 players on the list, no one truly gets looked at. Saying this, there might be film we have not seen. Come to us, and if we are proven enough we will update you onto the sheet or place you on a supplemental list we are creating that includes players who narrowly missed.
College and high school coaches….
If you would like a PDF copy of this before we do our mass sending, we will absolutely do so- just email us at CoalfieldsCo@gmail.com, and we will send it for free. It will not include contact information. We will resend you the updated one when it comes. For high school coaches, as said above, if you would like to gain permission for your players on the list and send us their contact info that works as well. Also, if you think we have mistakenly missed or chipped a player- we will hear you out.
