2010 Spring: Charlotte/Desoto

SunStateFootball.com
Posted May 7, 2010


SunStateFootball.com was in Charlotte and Desoto Counties for Spring practice. Here is a photo gallery of the practices.

Charlotte finished 11-2 last season, they did graduate a very talented senior class, but the cupboard is far from bare. It starts with one of the nation's top prospects in RB Mike Bellamy. Simply put, he is the state's top offensive weapon. Alex Mut plays both ways at WR and DB, he might be moved around even more as a senior. The USF commit is a tremendous all around athlete. Both Bellamy and Mut were preparing for the state track finals and will hit the field next Monday. Finding a QB to replace long time starter Kyle Midgett is the first order of business. The defense does not get enough credit because of the high powered offense, it is a tough unit. A pair of LBs stand out: Robert Haynes and Davion Stuarts are a hard hitting duo with speed. Stuarts was in the middle last year with Haynes on the outside. A lot of bodies were competing out there on the defensive line and there was plenty of size. The secondary will be led by Mut and Courtland Waters.

Desoto County finished 6-5 last season, RB Marcus Shaw(USF) led the state in rushing in the Dog's Wing-T attack. New coach Matt Egloff takes over and will spend the Spring seeing what he has before committing to scheme. Running Back Antonio Washington produced when given the opportunity last year, he should be a big part of the offense. The defensive line will be the strength of the defense. Dalton Wertz is a dominating presence on the interior and James Greene is the edge rusher. This team has more size and depth than a year ago. There is plenty of talent, it will just be a matter of how quickly the new staff and players can gel. In 11 games last year, Desoto threw the ball only 33 times(11 were HB passes), that is one area that is expected to change.
