ECP Alumni Myles Hartsfield Finishes Strong at Ole Miss
Playing in what is arguably the toughest football conference in the nation, Myles continues to impress in a very significant way. He started all 12 games for the Rebels as a freshman, had 43 tackles to his credit, and anyone who's watched him play can see he has tremendous upside.
Ole Miss assistant coach Corey Batoon said of Myles, "He could play all five of the positions back there. He was really a good get for us." High praise indeed.
Playing the roving safety position, Myles has demonstrated the kind of talent that all top notch defensive backs possess: he's physical and he has excellent coverage skills. (In fact, Coach Batoon says that Myles possesses the coverage skills to play cornerback if needed.)
In his first year he was named to the SEC All Freshman Team, and he's shown he's headed for great things on the gridiron. The sky's the limit for this young man's potential.
Dick Bell, his coach at ECP, said, "We're very proud of Myles. He is a great young player and fine young man. We are so happy we were the vehicle that enabled Myles to show his talent."
Success breeds more success, and there's no doubt that Myles is the type of player that ECP will see a lot more of in the future.
