The team ended up winning the game 27-10, for the first time since 1941, and it was thanks to the defense’s performance on the day. According to College Football...

New England Patriots Prospect Scouting Begins

When I look at scouting college players, its far more than who wins the game. I watch prospects and team play, to evaluate each prospect.
