CHRISTMAS DAY FOOTBALL
Christmas day football has decided to take a break in 2019 and we believe it was to give coaches, players and football families a break from the hectic rat race our game has become. College Football recruiting is now a year round event and the NFL teams are scouting rigorously for the up coming 2020 NFL Draft. Each respective level will be competing or paying for the services of the best our game has to offer and searching high & low for the next diamond in the rough. Which brings me to our next CFB Award at College Football Today, as our WR of The Year Award winner will be an immediate impact player in the NFL.
CFB WR OF THE YEAR
The CFB WR of The Year Award goes to Arkansas State wide receiver Omar Bayless, who had 93 receptions for 1653 yards and 17 touchdowns in his final year with the Red Wolves. Standing at 6'3,207LBS, Bayless reminds me of a Anquan Boldin with his physical style of play and remarkable play making abilities. When it comes to one handed snags in tight quarters, I have not seen many with the concentration of Bayless nationally and he is the ultimate deep threat at the next level. I project Bayless to go high in the 2020 NFL Draft, as there are not many that have the overall skill-set to create huge plays downfield in the world of College Football Today.

Not many can line up anywhere on the field and make a significant impact offensively like Tyshawn Lighty, as he is instant offense for a college football team. Tyshawn has received multiple offers and has major FBS interest from Bowling Green, Kentucky & Syracuse. When it comes to being able to stop and start on a dime and make defenders miss, Lighty takes the cake in the 2020 recruiting class at College Football Today.

Top 2020 APB recruits will see the greatness that is Satyler Wilson on our top football recruit rankings very soon, as he is one of the most electric players in the Southeast region of the United States. Wilson is one of the best route runners I have evaluated on tape in the 2020 recruiting class and is a explosive receiver coming out of the slot or wing-back position. Satyler possesses extreme athletics at the wide receiver position and remarkable instincts in the way he plays the game. He has the ability to make defenders miss and some of the best hands in the 2020 college football recruiting class. I am very excited to work with such a high octane WR recruit at the 2020 HS All-American Bowl in Memphis,TN.
2020 TOP WR RECRUITS
2020 top WR recruits at College Football Today features one of the best return men in the State of Florida and Jayden Brown is also an exceptional route runner.

Jayden is also extremely coach-able and lacks nothing as far as a Top 2020 WR recruit is concerned.

Top 2021 WR recruits features another Nova HS standout from the talent rich State of Florida in Paolo Adams. Adams is a magnificent route runner and compliments the above top 2020 wide receivers very well when working out of the slot wide receiver position. I have also witnessed Paulo work live at Nova High School and he is capable of making big plays downfield. He has some of the best hands you will find in the 2021 football recruiting class and is able to create separation for his quarterback with his keen senses at the receiver position.

Hubbard had one of the most prolific seasons in NCAA football history, as he amassed over 2,100 yards from scrimmage which was combined with 21 rushing touchdowns.

TOP 2021 RB RECRUITS
Top 2021 RB recruits come from all over the world, as we have seen with the Canadian Cowboy Chuba Hubbard at Oklahoma State.

Smith is one of the most solid downhill runners in the 2021 recruiting class and helped St.Thomas More finish the season as undefeated champions!

Watch Jawaun's spectacular 2019 season below, as he was able to rush for over 1,600 yards on only 149 carries and 25 touchdowns!
CFB PLAYER OF THE YEAR
CFB Player of The Year at College Football Today is not Joe Burrow, even though he brought home the Heisman Trophy and many other prestigious awards this past season. We instead have selected Oklahoma Sooners QB Jalen Hurts, as in our opinion he was the most valuable player on his football team in 2019. He faced much adversity throughout his storied career and was able to not only overcome many trials, but be an exemplary leader in the process.
Jalen Hurts 2019 Passing Stats
Jalen Hurts 2019 Rushing Stats
PEACH BOWL 2019
The Peach Bowl in 2019 will feature the Oklahoma Sooners vs the LSU Tigers, as our CFB Player of The Year takes on the 2019 Heisman Trophy winner and a roaring LSU Tigers defense. I believe Hurts will take a win over the Tigers in the Peach Bowl, instead of any award in which he did not win. To beat an extremely talented LSU team or any potent SEC defense, you must have a big time dual-threat QB that can avoid the fierce pass rush that these teams depend on weekly. LSU has showed signs that they are susceptible to letting up a lot of points later down the road this season, when Ole Miss was able to score 37 on their defense. I do know this, Jalen Hurts and the Oklahoma offense will be firing on all cylinders in the 2019 Peach Bowl and Jalen Hurts will be the player to watch in the 2019-2020 College Football Playoff.
JALEN HURTS NFL DRAFT
When it comes to measuring Jalen Hurts for the NFL Draft in 2020, you have to begin to look at how quickly he can grasp new concepts and put them into action. The kid who was at Alabama as a "running QB", is fully capably of pushing the ball deep downfield, as he proved this season with the Oklahoma Sooners. When you combine his overall athleticism and capabilities escaping pressure in the pocket, you will begin to see all of the intangibles needed to excel at a high level in the National Football League today. Much like a Lamar Jackson, Hurts could be the next athlete to break the QB rushing record with his ability in the ground game. Plays obviously will break down in college and the NFL and Jalen Hurts is not only fully prepared when they do, but he can turn a dead play into a touchdown. Would Alabama have made the College Football Playoff with Hurts at the helm? We will never know, as the media played a major role in Hurts being gifted the tutelage of Coach Lincoln Riley and his high octane offense.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF
The College Football Playoff could be one of the biggest success stories in our time at College Football Today, if Jalen Hurts and the Sooners can topple the mighty Tigers of LSU. Hurts has already made it further than his former teammates at Alabama, but he clearly does not hold any animosity towards his former program and only cares about bringing home the 2019-2020 CFB Playoff National Championship to Norman, Oklahoma. To be completely honest, if Hurts can lead the Sooners in the CFB Playoff like the star he has been all season, I believe he is a better pick than Tua Tagovailoa, as he not only is more durable, but is a much better athlete at the QB position overall.
SOONERS QB JALEN HURTS
The Sooners QB Jalen Hurts was a topic of discussion last year when he was in training camp with the University of Alabama. I believed that Jalen Hurts brought different dynamics to the their offense and should have rightfully been the starter or at least used more often in the offense.

College Football Today HS All-American Quarterbacks are also cut from a different cloth like Jalen Hurts and are looking to make a statement at our All-American Bowl in Memphis,TN.

2021 top QB recruits will have an entire off-season to prove they are among the elite in their class and have not found many with the overall potential that 6'6,205LB QB Alex Stack has moving forward into next season. Stack has one of the strongest arms in the nation and is one of the most athletic 6'6 quarterbacks I have seen when avoiding pressure.

Higgins also has major dual-threat capabilities that were able to catch the eye of TCU, SMU, North Texas and many more top tier college football programs.
