Isaac Hilton: The Next big thing or not.

Football is a game that can take a nation by its craze. I am an ardent lover of the game and if you are one of the football aficionados you must have heard about a player called Isaac Hilton. Hilton has become a recognizable face. He is an Outside Linebacker.  He has the required physique. A weight of 250 pounds and a height of 6'4" are quite adequate for the game. Hilton is just 27 years old. He plays for the Hampton College. Isaac Hilton drew the attention of the gaming community for the first time, in the college’s spring game held in 2002. That was 6 years back. He was described as a player with tremendous potential and a kind of latent dynamite. Isaac Hilton mesmerized the audience during the entire game. Hilton is known for his unique blend of strength and speed in the game. Hilton’s talent was noticed in his school days. He was a student of South Carolina. As far as I know, Hilton was approached by a number of colleges. He almost made a commitment to play as a Linebacker for North Carolina. However, ultimately he enrolled with Hampton College. You may be amazed to know that Isaac Hilton has some remarkable achievements in his portfolio. He is an accomplished athlete besides being a football player. He won the coveted Middle Eastern Athletic Conference championship twice in his career. However, it is also true that like most sportsperson, Isaac Hilton has some inherent areas of limitation. While playing under Division I-AA Hampton he did not have to face strong opponents. I feel he still lacks the absolute leading capacity that a promising NFL player needs to have. He did show his mettle while playing against Bowie State. There he managed 6 sacks. Another good show was put up by him when he played against Howard where he got additional 4 of them. The same can not be said about his remaining 10 games. There he could manage an average figure of 3 sacks.  Isaac Hilton got some stiff competition from Shedrick Moten who plays for Florida A&M. That incident has aroused the suspicion of some veterans and they prefer to wait and watch how Hilton fares in the future. I feel the argument holds some substance. While he has potential, AFC South will be his true evaluation and time will reveal whether he is the next big thing or a flash in the pan.
