ATHENS, Ga. -- When Jonathon Rumph was a high school sophomore, his coaches had a simple philosophy once their offense advanced close to the opponent’s goal line.

“We’d just chunk it up and let him beat whoever was down there with him. We had somebody who could get the ball to him then,” said Abby Bray, who coached Rumph at Brookland-Cayce High School in Cayce, S.C. “We’d be at the 15-, 18-yard line and just throw it to the corner and just legitimately throw it up high and it was no contest. I don’t care who was guarding him, it was no contest.

“That was when he was in 10th grade. I can’t imagine what he’d have been like when he was a senior if we’d have had anybody that could throw the football, but we didn’t.”

Because he simply didn’t have much talent on his roster -- particularly at quarterback -- Bray said he felt compelled to put his best athlete under center during the next two seasons. And he believes today that the decision prevented Rumph from becoming one of the nation’s most sought-after receiver prospects.
