LOS ANGELES -- They were excited about him then. They have forgotten about him now.

How strange it seems when one thinks back to just a year ago when George Farmer was all the rage. He was more than just a good high school player. He was the Mike Trout of high school football players. He had it all -- size, speed, productivity. He even had the genes. His dad, George Sr., was an NFL wide receiver with the Los Angeles Rams and Miami Dolphins.
