    Tyler Wrice RB/DB/KR/PR big things to come for this 5ft 8 inch 167 lbs player from Papillion-La Vista Monarchs after finishing second on team in rushing as a sophmore. This player should be named in players to watch for the 2013 class. He will be a major part in the Monarchs return to the playoffs next season as a junior. This is a sleeper prospect that will be notice next year. He continues his hard work at warren academy during off season as he prepares for high school combines Nike, Under Armour, Underclassmen.

    I’m sure that RJ (Rajaah) Jones will be among the top LB’s in the state again this season! For his size, he is a real hitter! RJ has a nose for the football and gets in on tackles. Maybe in college, he will have to make the move over to CB! But being the ball player he is , he will make the move!!!

    RJ had over 130 tackles this past season & he will anchor the LB corp as a true leader!!! Moving to CB/S in college some coach will have a motivated individual ready too ROLL!!! These young is a “team first” individual!!!

    Again I am writing in regards to RJ Jones how attends Omaha Central and plays LB/FB! RJ is a real stud and the type of player most coaches would love to have play for them. This young man s passionate for the game, a leader, team first! I don’t know what it takes to make your list but RJ is worth! RJ leads Central for the second year in tackles with over 150 tackles. He had over 130 last year, was 1st team All- District and Honorable Mention All-State!
