Thoughts from The Three Stars
David: We love Boots! I can’t wait to see what Josh Storms does with this young man after a year or two. Like father, like son- two generations of Lamont Greens making big impacts in the garnet and gold.
Josh: Another kid who’s underrated — he didn’t really play the recruiting game. Think Boots will do big things in Tally.
Tim: A sack machine, the legacy recorded 20 sacks his senior season.
