Recruiting: Dooley Dazzles the Berry Twins



See?  Dooley doubters, I knew Dooley would strike when the iron was hot.  He would eventually meet the Berry twins when he was damn well ready.  The shit just got real.

I found this 2009 quote that was attributed the Dooley and his recruiting philosophy:

“My recruiting? I am disciplined and calm, to await the appearance of disorder and hubbub among the other schools:— I see this as the is art of recruiting and retaining the players essential to the success of my program. It is a one of my personal axioms not to advance uphill recruiting a player , nor to oppose him when he comes downhill.”

So I suppose that Dooley is fixing to waste Trooper Taylor’s ass real soon.  And the Berrys?  They will be clad in orange.

Derek Dooley stopped in Atlanta to check on the twin brothers of perhaps the most famous ex-Tennessee football player not named Peyton Manning or Reggie White this week.

Evan and Elliott Berry are twin mega-prospects at Creekside High School, and the younger brothers of Eric Berry. Evan is a quarterback and safety, while Elliott plays linebacker and tailback.

Eric, who plays with the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs, wasn’t too happy with Dooley and Tennessee last spring and expressed it on Twitter. He thought the Vols waited too long to get serious with Creekside DB Josh Holsey, who eventually committed to Auburn…..

I bet that Trooper Taylor does more than introduce himself casually to the Berry twins.  He takes them to Sonic at happy hour for Route 44 Ocean Waters:

“Coach Dooley just wanted to introduce himself, and say that he wanted to build a relationship with them,” Creekside coach Johnny White told the AJC. “He couldn’t really talk to them because they are just sophomores.

About Capers Bar

I am retired Army officer. I used to fly helicopters and airplanes while I was in the Army. Nowadays, I do other things that are not so cool and sexy. I decided to write about my journey or whatever you want to call it towards running a half-marathon this fall. I have been running since 1983, I have run the Duke City full and half marathons. I don't run that fast anymore, I did win a 10K when I was 21, those days are mercifully past me. The fastest mile I have turned is a 5:05 during one of those Army physical fitness test 2 mile runs. The point I am making is that I am old, slow, and experienced runner. I named the blog after my running buddy, Bandit, an Australian Blue Heeler. He is my 3rd K-9 running buddy, the previous two dogs were black labs. I hope to write about some of my discussions that I have with Bandit in the future. I once owned, but since sold and a satirical and irreverent sports blog that was moderately successful. I was published in the left-wing national sports media by Sports Illustrated and ESPN. I am "stuck" in Alabama working for a military contractor. I am working so fricking hard to get back to Southeast New Mexico or West Texas. Fingers and toes crossed.
