Golden State takes another look at the Palo Cedro Foothill running back, Codey Ellenwood...

I just received some game film from my Redding, California area counterpart Marcelo Jimenez, on Codey Ellenwood of Foothill High School. As I watched Codey’s film one word came to mind, and that’s “ TANK” ! He’s the running back you call out when you need that extra yardage for that field goal attempt or that guaranteed 5 yard run for the first down.

As I watched his game film I wondered why we haven’t heard about players like Codey before, who live in Northern California. Why wasn’t he, or his high school, on anyone’s radar. Well Marcelo Jimenez has found a jewel of a player in Codey.

Codey is 5’ 10” tall and weighs in at 225 pounds. Just check out his game film and you will see that there’s vast potential in this prospect. Once he gets going it’s hard to slow him down. The entire defense has to shift towards him in order to bring him down.

I can see him playing other positions as well because of his size. He can punch a hole throw the defense for someone else or plow the rough himself with ball in hand. If you’re in the Redding area stop by Foothill high school and give Codey a hard look. Make sure to give him a shout out from
