Scouting Football: RB Errol Brooks (Central Tech)

Football highlight tapes often tend to be very biased. They only display a limited view of an athlete and ignore many areas of a football player – game consistency, versatility, work ethic, weaknesses and so forth. When a highlight tape is short, it also is considered suspicious as it does not show a running back’s ability in pass blocking, receiving, wear-and-tear and possibly against better teams. It is much better to watch a player live to see a better understanding of the skill set and athletism an athlete possesses. While Central Tech RB’ Errol Brooks’ highlight tape is extremely short at 3:36, one thing is for sure: he has potential.
