Michael Nebrich ‘s recruiting card
Lake Braddock (Burke, VA) head coach Jim Poythress, whose team is 5-2 so far in 2009, boasts one major college recruit in his senior class in offensive lineman Khamrone Kolb. Kolb, who committed to Penn State on Sunday, may not be the only major college prospect on the roster, however, as Coach Poythress is also high on the talents of junior quarterback Michael Nebrich .
Through seven games, Nebrich has completed 114 of 214 passes for nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He has thrown only one interception in the past three games and none over the past two. A gifted runner, Nebrich has rushed 118 times for 782 yards and nine scores.
“Michael is 6-1, 185 pounds, and he runs real well,” said Poythress. “He was clocked at 4.6 in the 40 on grass at UVa. He runs in the high 4.5s. He is extraordinarily elusive. I said recently that he is the most dynamic player in the region. The spread offense we run with him is difficult for people to defend. He has gotten to where he understands our offense. He threw some interceptions early on, but once he got the hang of it he really started doing well.”
Impressed by Nebrich’s athletic ability, Coach Poythress believes the standout junior could be a safety or wide receiver on the college level. Quarterback is not out of the question, either.
“When I first saw him as a sophomore, I thought he could be a D1 safety,” Poythress said. “He could be a wide receiver. It depends. He can run the spread offense some colleges use smaller quarterbacks, like Reesing at Kansas. He needs to put on more weight and get stronger, but he is an athlete. He is a center-fielder on our baseball team, which is one of the best programs in the state every year. He’s a kid who will be on the college radar.”
Poythress likens Nebrich with a former Virginia Tech standout in terms of potential at the safety position.
“I coached Willie Pile at West Potomac. He played safety. At this point, Nebrich is a better player than Willie was at this time in his career. Willie matured later and was taller, but Nebrich compares favorably to Willie,” Poythress said.
Nebrich has yet to receive his first...
