Omaha Northwest’s Antaries Daniels (#31) prepares to make
another spectacular move


    The 5’10 185lb Antaries Daniels, a junior to be running back out of Omaha Northwest High School, is slowly starting to get the recognition that he deserves as a quality D-I prospect.

    My first observation of Daniels came last season while watching the fast, elusive, hard running , and  often difficult to bring down running back amass a  total of  245 all-pupose yards against Omaha Burke.

    After watching his performance, I spoke about Daniels to Burke assistant coach  Damon Benning—a former great Northwest running back himself, who went on to become a heralded Nebraska Cornhusker back. “Is this kid for real, and where did he come from?” I asked. Benning replied by acknowledging that Daniels was indeed for real and that he was a good back. The future may see Benning’s response as bit of an understatement.

    Daniels ended the 2007 campaign by gaining just short of 1,000 yards (922) on the ground and scoring 8 touchdowns.

The areas that impress the most about Daniels’ 2007 stats are that he was only a sophomore and that he accomplished the feats despite not having the best of offensive lines to light his way through.”

    Perhaps the shortcomings in the Northwest offensive line has helped to hone Daniels’ elusive style. His ability to see the feild combined with his quick, explosive, and slippery moves and his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield makes him a dangerous foe for opposing teams. Add to this mix Daniel’s current height, weight, and speed and you will begin to see many college coaches turning their heads to keep tabs on this young man.

    Daniels is smartly not resting on his laurels, as he busily begins to show his wares to college coaches at their summer camps, with his first stop being at Nebraska University. You can keep an out for Daniels’ camp performances by visiting one of “Our Favorite Sites” links  that specializes in bringing you this kind of coverage.

    Our projections for Daniels: With two full seasons of high school football remaining—and with his current gifts and abilities, he may—work—his way into becoming one of the better running back prospects to ever come out of the state of Nebraska.
