June 21, 2013Back in April, GBK announced our Black Knights' 2013 Pre-Season Top Ten.
This past spring, there was plenty of competition, as many players saw their performance push them up the depth chart, while others are hoping to redeem themselves this summer.
As we look towards the summer practices, GoBlackKnights.com is asking for your participation, because it was a difficult task, especially with many of the "potentially" up and coming players M.I.A. this spring as they fight through injury, rehab and even some academic challenges. Many of those players will be looking to prove themselves once again, but until then, here is GBK's Top 10.
Perhaps you aren't in agreement with our Top Ten, so we would like both your comment and hence your vote in the Facebook section below so that we can hear from you surrounding your Top Ten picks.
Voting Criteria: Simple ... A player's importance to the team in 2013, talent and potential for the upcoming season.
Army Black Knights' 2013 Pre-Season Top Ten
2. Ryan Powis
5. Larry Dixon
6. Bobby Kough
7. Michael Kime
10. A.J. Schurr
Ironically, each of our Honorable Mention members have one very notable thing something in common and that is that all three are 2nd on the depth chart.
Trenton Turrentine - One could easily argue that our top ten selections could have had 3 players from the slotback lineage. It was Turrentine's performance that truly significant in Army's win against Air Force, where his play was outstanding.
Hayden Tippett- What can you say. Whenever he is in the lineup, only good things happen. It does matter if he is running or blocking, Tippett's value allows for Dixon to rest from time to time, without a drop-off in production.
Anthony Stephens- The senior wide receiver plays behind our No. 8 selection, Chevaughn Lawrence. But just based on his production this spring and the his commitment to the off-season workout ... there isn't a single player on the team that has and is working harder than Stephens. There is no doubt that he will be called upon this season.
