Scouting Report

Scouting Report: Coach Lisimba Patilla – Recruiting Specialist

2.00 Fans (3.0 max)  3.00  Noblesteps (3.0 max)

Daniel is the ultimate run stopper; he plays down hill and has the strength and technique to beat double teams and still make the tackle.  He is explosive off the ball in a three point stance and is an energy guy who will run sideline to sideline to make the play on a ball carrier.  He also has a very high football IQ that provides him insight to read blocking schemes and move effortlessly to the football to make tackles.  He uses his hands extremely well for a high school football player.


Good combination of strength and quickness which is necessary for the middle linebacker position or possibly a defensive end at the college level in a Flex or traditional 4-3 defense.  As Daniel improves his speed and pass coverage ability, with his tenacious off-season work ethic, he may eclipse 120 tackles for his upcoming Senior Football Season - 2011/2012.
