In Part 6 in the "Searching 4 Superstars" preseason special, WYFF High School Playbook examines the top area linebackers. Rather than featuring these players merely on recruiting status, WYFF has made a conscious effort to feature them by their on-field accomplishments in the high school realm.
Adam Ah Ching (jr.), Greer The rising star of the Yellow Jackets possesses NFL blood with relatives Junior Seau and Troy Polamalu, but injuries have prevented him from collecting the stats he is capable of attaining. In only seven games in 2009, Ah Ching averaged 12.7 tackles per game and led the Yellow Jackets in unassisted tackles and tackles for loss. Last summer, Ah Ching received plenty of attention in summer camps, and since then has received three Division I offers. Greer continues to gain experience and the team will need Adam Ah Ching to stay injury-free so he can lead this talented defense. If Adam Ah Ching can continue on the pace he set last season, his final two years of high school football could be worth remembering as he embarks on the quest for NFL greatness like his Samoan kinsmen.
