REPORT: Lake Worth alum James Looney transferring out of Wake Forest

Apr 23, 2014 -- 9:19am

Wake Forest football is chock-full of Palm Beach County talent, but the Demon Deacons are down one Palm Beacher this off-season.
 
The Demon Deacons' Palm Beach population is now seven after defensive lineman and Lake Worth alum James Looney decided to transfer out of the program. The story was reported by ACCSports.com on Tuesday.
 
Looney's bio is no longer featured on the Wake Forest Football webpage, nor is his name included on the official roster.
 
A highly-touted offensive lineman in high school, Looney focused solely on defense at Wake. He played in six games last year a true freshman, registering three tackles and a half sack.
 
Looney received interest from schools like USF, Marshall, Miami, and Stanford in high school, but opted to play for his brother Joe's alma mater Wake Forest instead.
 
Joe Looney is currently an offensive lineman with the San Francisco 49ers.
 
 
The reason for Looney's decision to transfer is unknown, though longtime head coach Jim Grobe's resignation in early December may have contributed. Looney's list of potential landing places are also unknown.

Boston hosted quite a party on Monday and Santaluces grad Vince Wilfork was there to be a part of it.
 
The New England Patriots' newly extended defensive tackle was in attendance at the Boston Marathon, reveling in the celebratory mood as fans and particpants alike came out in force a year after the tragic bombings marred the event and devastated the city and country. 
 
Wilfork made sure to take plenty of pictures...
 

Louisville reaching out to two local football prospects facing legal trouble

Louisville appears to be showing faith in a pair of locals who have had recent legal issues.
 
Cardinals' football assistants scoured Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast on Tuesday visiting schools and presenting offers. Two of the stops were Fort Pierce Central and Dwyer, homes to Sharieff Rhaheed and Tavares Martin respectively, who have both run afoul of the law this year.
 
Shortly after he signed with Louisville in February, Rhaheed, a linebacker, was arrested on lewd and lacivious behavior charges after an alleged sexual relationship with his cousin. UofL head coach Bobby Petrino and his staff opted to wait out the legal proceedings that were resolved late last month when Rhaheed pled no contest in a St. Lucie County courtroom, avoiding a sex offender tag.
 
Louisville dropped in on Rhaheed and Tuesday and multiple people with knowledge of the Fort Pierce Central program say he'll still be headed to play for Petrino over the summer. Louisville has not provided comment since the Rhaheed's arrest took place on February 25th.
 
Martin received a formal offer from the Cardinals on Tuesday per his Twitter account, but his situation is still very fresh and very pending. The wide receiver was taken into custody on Thursday night on four felony charges related to burglary and theft.
 
The four-star prospect's senior season is still very much in doubt considering he has yet to ever put on a Dwyer uniform after transferring from John I. Leonard in January. Dwyer head coach Jack Daniels has not yet made a decision on whether or not Martin will play for him in 2015.
 
Martin has several major offers including Florida State, Miami, South Carolina, Nebraska, and others.

Dwyer CB Shawun Lurry signs with NIU

Apr 21, 2014 -- 1:24pm

Better late than never.
 
Shawun Lurry is headed to Northern Illinois.
 
The Dwyer senior made it official over the weekend after he signed late with MAC power NIU, joining teammate Ezra Saffold as steals in this year's Huskies recruiting class.
 
Lurry didn't send a Letter Of Intent on National Signing Day due to grade concerns, but was able to ink his way to DeKalb on Saturday.
 
The speedy prospect had a breakout year for Dwyer after transferring from Inlet Grove in the offseason, starring as a cornerback and a returnman.
 
Lurry had the game-clinching interception in Dwyer's overtime 7A semifinal win over East Lake and picked off two passes in the title game to help beat Niceville.
 
Already on NIU's roster is Dwyer alum Tommylee Lewis, one of the MAC's most lethal offensive and special teams weapons.
 

#FilmRoom1063: Taking a look at Dwyer QB Daniel Parr

Apr 21, 2014 -- 11:40am
ESPN West Palm's "coach", Chris Kokell, gives a comprehesive film breakdown of high school football prospects across Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast.
 
DANIEL PARR
 
 
Position: Quarterback
School: Dwyer (Class of 2015)
Height: 6-3
Weight: 175
Top Offers: FAU, Marshall, Akron, Yale
Note: Won 2013 7A Player of the Year
 
 
Where He Excels:
Daniel Parr has the best mechanics of the talent rich QB pool currently residing in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast. Pro-style QB with a plus arm. Quick release. Parr's accuracy allows his receivers to never have to break stride. This is due to Parr's ability to always get his feet underneath him and square his shoulders even when throwing on the run. Parr makes the most of his 6'3" frame by standing tall in the pocket. Has decent mobility in which he uses to create open passing lanes and keep defenses honest out of fear of Parr scrambling.  
 
What To Work On:
The biggest question mark on Parr is the unknown. Was the Class 7A Player of the Year just a product of his environment? We will find out this year as Dwyer graduates four Division I skill players, including Ohio State WR Johnnie Dixon (No. 1 on Class of '14 ESPN 106.3 Top 63 list). One mechanical aspect Parr needs to improve is his ball security while scrambling. Runningback drills will help develop the mindset of keeping the ball high and tight. The wrist should never drop lower than the elbow.
 
Kokell's Film Analysis:
Who is Daniel Parr? Is he just a QB that had a ton of talent around him to inflate his stats (over 3,000 yards and 42 TDs to only 6 INT's), or is he a leader of men that can help Dwyer maintain its level of dominance? If I were a betting man, I'd bet the farm on the latter. Parr had two defining moments last year that made me a believer: 1) A two-minute drill at the end of the first half against Royal Palm Beach in which he led the Panthers down field with Peyton Manning-type precision and command of the offense. Parr showed on that drive he could make all the throws and be the calming presence his teammate needed. 2) The state title game vs. Niceville. In the first half Parr had two red zone fumbles that resulted in turnovers and a Dwyer deficit at the half. Many would have folded in that situation, but not Parr. He showed what he was made of by rebounding to lead Dwyer to 36 second half points including both a passing and rushing TD.
