Every year in sports you have certain players make the impossible seem possible. I believe that’s the reason we all watch sports. Some people watch sports because they played as a child. Others watch because they enjoy seeing competition at a high level. Many watch sports on TV simply because their spouse is a die hard fan of a particular team. With all that said, deep down I believe we all share one common thing when it comes to watching sports. We all want to capture the big moment! Not an instant replay, not on DVR but Live In Action. There is no better feeling than sitting in a college stadium of 80,000 or a high school stadium with 5,000 and seeing every person screaming to the top of their lungs and cheering. Not because their team won, but because everyone knows they just witnessed something that has never happened before or something they know they may never see again. That’s the beauty of sports. At any moment, at anytime, on any level, we all know we may witness history. A moment we can pass down to our children and grand children. This year was no different for Gwinnett Gridiron Recruits. 2015 was a year where no Gwinnett team took home the State Championship which is rare these days. There is a cliché we tend to use “Big Time Players Make Big Time Plays” and that proved to be true for Gwinnett football in 2015. With all variables taken into consideration here are the 10 best performances of the 2015 season.
