Film Review

Page stands around 6 feet 2 inches and weighs about 200 pounds. He possesses great skills and has the potential to be very great throughout his collegiate career. He’s quick on his feet, which allows him to get around blockers and make critical tackles. He is a versatile player and is able to switch positions and still get the job done. The way Page plays shows that he is a very dependable player who goes all out every time he steps on the field.

Although his raw statistics aren’t eye-catching, Page has great skills and could become a real show-stopper for the team.

Page may not be on the field too much this football season, but make sure to keep an out for him when he does get the chance to play.
