Finishing his first year in Niceville, FL and playing for the local high school produced great results for the Oklahoma transplant Roy Finch. So well that the 5’8 170 pound running back with 4.41 forty speed has earned the attention of a few big name schools from across the nation including two offers.
“Right now I have two offers, Stanford and Alabama, but I am also hearing from Florida, Oregon, Auburn, Tennessee, and Oklahoma. I’d say that right now Oregon, Florida, and Alabama are my favorite schools at the moment,” says Finch.
Finch is considered a scat back as his short frame allows him to hide behind blockers and waits for holes to open. His style of play paid of big time as his Junior season Finch was able to have a great season.
“I had 1296 yards rushing, 446 yards on kick returns, and 300 yards receiving. From all of that I scored 25 touchdowns for my Junior season,” said Finch.
Finch informed Ducks Attack he is looking for a school with good coaching, good academics that has a good journalism school, and one that has a team and school who love one another.
With Oregon being one of Finch’s early favorites Ducks Attack asked what makes Oregon so appealing.
“I like the style of offense they run as it’s attractive to me and I also think the coaching staff at Oregon is top notch,” informs Finch.
Finch has planned a busy off-season so far with the 2009 Nike Rise Camp, Florida Camp, Alabama Camp, and unofficial visits to Florida, Florida State, and Alabama all on the table so far.
