PamplicoKobe Praylow was known for his basketball prowess in the halls of Hannah-Pamplico High School.  However, it has been his ability on the gridiron this season that helped the Raiders overcome several injuries during the non-conference portion of the schedule.

Praylow (6’0, 170), the point guard for the basketball team and leading scorer last year, never played football for the school.  But head coach Jamie Johnson developed a relationship with him over the offseason and convinced him to join the program.

“He didn’t play at all so he was new to our program as a senior,” Johnson said.  “He’s been doing special things on the football field.  I think he definitely has a future in football even though he’s only played this year.  Just imagine how good he would be if he had played in the past.”

Praylow has been a jack-of-all-trades for the Raiders, making an impact on offense, defense and special teams.  As a running back, he has gained 527 yards with five rushing touchdowns while adding 118 yards receiving with two more scores.

Defensively, he has a 67-yard interception return for a TD, and he’s also averaging 29 yards per punt return with another touchdown.

“He’s just a ballplayer.  We know that when we get him the ball, he’s going to make plays for us.  He’s really helped us go as a football team,” Johnson said.  “It would be even more (yards) but he’s had two punt returns called back and had an 80-yard run called back.”

Praylow has been the epitome of a team player, doing anything the coaching staff has asked of him.  With his big-play ability, one college may be getting a steal late in the recruiting cycle.

“You can put him anywhere.  He just wants to win.  One week we had an injury and he stepped in at linebacker.  He’ll play in the secondary, at running back, receiver.  He’s pretty special,” Johnson said.

“We’ve sent out a bunch of film on him so hopefully will take a shot on him.  His grades are really good and he has good test scores.”
