My name is Tom Melton and I am a 20 year old student currently attending Beloit College. I work for the football team there in a number of capacities, most notably as the primary film guy for all of their games (home and away). This involves filming the game and then uploading, cutting and matching the film up with the appropriate down, distance, etc. from the play by play. Then during the offseason I will look at film from the past season and look for blocking schemes, defensive fronts, WR alignments, etc. So they keep me busy.
What I truly love to do in my free time is scouting. I watch a lot of college football whether it the season is going or not so I can scout players who may one day be NFL prospects if they aren’t already. I watch as many games as I can of that player, take notes and then compile a scouting report when my opinion of the prospect has been solidified. Last year I wrote 87 scouting reports and my goal is to write 100-150 this year. It will be interesting to see if I accomplish that goal, but I think I can. Naturally all of the reports that I write will be posted on this blog.
Hopefully you all enjoy the blog and come back often. I work really hard on all of the reports I write, so it will be nice to share them with everyone who reads them.
