Scout Day: Emerald

By: Nick Nickles-February 18, 2010 

Stanley Moss allowed us to run his Emerald Vikings through a pro workout, and to our surprise we located one of the fastest players in the state in previously unknown sophomore John Mulkey. Unsigned senior Reid Dixon showed a nice arm during OF, and Emerald’s tools translated pretty well in the scrimmage against Dorman. Emerald is a scrappy bunch with hidden athleticism that could translaste into a postseason headache for higher ranked teams. Moss is one of the top 5 coaches in the state and he has consistently won with lesser talent dating back to his days at Greenwood. He will have the Vikings ready to go this season even after unexpectedly losing the top two players on his club in recent weeks.
