Watching CJ Verdell run is truly an experience of beauty. Every time he touches the ball there is a palpable excitement that a touchdown is about to happen.

While Verdell finished the regular season with 28 touchdowns, it will be exciting to see how he performs in the post-season.

Verdell's college career appears to be headed to the northwest to the Oregon Ducks... just one of ten schools expressing interest in him.

Off the field Verdell's great family is worth noting. Both of his parents currently serve or used to serve in the U. S. Navy, obviously molding not just a great football player but a fine young man.
