The Scoop - Every high school team has a player or two that has the versatility to play multiple positions, but the thing is ....very few are as good as Shareef Blough. Blough does not have a true position on offense, and I think that's the way Don Bailey likes it, because he can use him in so many different ways. Blough is a smooth runner that happened to lead the Rangers in rushing last season despite not being the team's starting running back to begin the year. Forest Hills struggled at times establishing the run, but Blough was able to open up the offense when they needed him. Blough also was the team's leading receiver, and looks just as natural running routes as he is running with the ball in his hands. He's good enough to be the team's best player at both positions. Blough led the team in interceptions, and is easily one of the better cornerbacks in the area also. His athleticism allows for him to be a factor in the return game as well. Blough can flat out play football, and he makes an impact at so many different spots throughout the course of a game. Teams have to be mindful of where he is at all times, because he is a big play waiting to happen.
