A shoulder injury sidelined Ronny Vandyke for the entire 2009 season, but after surgery and rehabilitation the 6-3, 195-pound prospect was healthy and ready for 2010. South County (Lorton, VA) fell short of its goals in 2010, ending up with a 4-6 record, but the talented senior played well and showed why he received written scholarship offers from eight FBS programs despite missing his junior season.
Vandyke’s senior season performance, which included a 38-yard interception return for a touchdown and a tackle for a safety in the win over Lee, propels the talented prospect into the TechSideline.com Postseason Top 10, which will be released in December.
