Poteat is one of the more complete backs in this class. Great size, feet, in-line strength as well as good blocking and receiving skills make up this guy's total package.Poteat (5'11", 195), has all the tools to be a brief understudy to Ray Graham in 2011. Last season he ran for 1,664 yards and 24 touchdowns with a 6.3 ypg. Poteat has been a star in Harrisburg for years, but it appears that the limelight was getting a bit too bright:
“It’s great people care like that, I have to be honest; and believe me, I appreciate it. But it’s gotten to be a little ridiculous sometimes. I’m playing in a seven-on-seven league and someone came up to my mom asking her. My mom can’t sit down and watch me play without someone asking her.” ... “I want to make sure I get it right, wherever I go,” Poteat said. “It is nice to be wanted and getting all of this attention. I’m blessed to be in this position, I really am. It’s why I want to make my choice. This has been like a job. I’m looking forward to just relaxing. I can’t wait until this is done so I can go back to being a big kid again and enjoying myself.”
