Hey Amat fans, where was Darren Andrews last year? If you answer “playing defense”, then please leave this blog and never return.
I’m standing there Friday night watching this guy literally be the best player on the field and I’m wondering where were they hiding this guy last year?
I’m not kidding, he’s the best player in the Valley as things stand right now.
The guy is probably the smoothest kick returner I’ve ever covered. He’s a fantastic DB. He’s electric at receiver.
And all I get is one season?
I get why we didn’t see Koa Haynes. Rio Ruiz was the QB. I get why we didn’t see Dionza Blue (at running back). Jalen Moore was the feature back. But I don’t get why Darren Andrews didn’t have more of an offensive impact than nine receptions for 68 yards and a TD.
Andrews is one of those rare players that any time he has the ball, everyone in the stadium holds their breath. So where the hell was he last year?
Was he hurt? Was it an oversight? Did he make a quantum leap in terms of ability between his junior and senior year? I’m lost.
Andrews is already committed to Duke, but uh, yeah, I gotta think some recruiters are gonna try and talk him out of that.
