One of the fastest rising recruits in the state of Oregon, is 2018 standout Myles Green-Richards (6-0 185 FS/ATH) of South Eugene. As a Sophomore Green-Richards made a name for himself, racking up 94 total tackles from his free safety spot, and going for 600+ yards and 5 TD’s on offense.
Prior to last season the Axemen had posted a (3-46) record from 2010-14. That said as South may have turned a corner, going (3-6) in 2015, with impressive conference wins over Roseburg and Thurston. Myles comes back one of the top overall athletes in the state. He is the starting point guard for the basketball team and an all conference long jumper in Track. His 3.89 accumulative GPA speaks to his ability off the field.
Watch his film and you see a kid that has unique instincts and legit closing speed. Speaking on some of his goals moving forward he says, “Personally I want to earn a scholarship from a division 1 school, and be a role model in my community, and to my teammates.. As a team we want to win at least 6 games and host a playoff game.”
Green- Richards will project as one of the top DB’s in the Northwest, and a kid that can get it done offensively. He will need to get used to double teams, as opponents will make someone else beat them this season. One month back Myles had a breakout performance at the NW Best Collegiate Showcase in Portland. His ability to accelerate and compete matched many of the older athletes already offered by D1 schools.
It’s been a tough half decade for South, but if they can stay healthy, they will have a shot to win some games in the SWC. Look for Myles to be a statistical leader within the conference and a potential player of the year candidate when all is said and done. The Axemen are improving and Green-Richards is a big reason why.
