    Bevins would have been3rd pick no later if he was black. So many small school scrub affletes drafted, ridiculous.

    Cowboys invite Lamar RB Kade Harrington to minicamp

    Lamar running back Kade Harrington has been invited to attend the Dallas Cowboys rookie minicamp.

    The all-time leading rusher in Lamar history, Harrington is a former Southland Conference Player of the Year.

    He had one scholarship offer out of Kingwood High School despite rushing for 1,944 yards and 22 touchdowns as a senior when he was named first-team Class 5A all-state.

    Harrington worked out for the Texans at their local prospect day.

    He had an official visit with the New York Giants.

    Harrington was a three-time all-conference selection and a preseason All-American candidate last season. However, he tore ligaments in his left foot and was limited to 636 yards and four touchdowns as a senior.

    Harrington is a versatile performer who rushed for 2,092 yards and 21 touchdowns as a junior.

    He finished his collegiate career with 4,348 yards and 44 touchdown runs, catching 97 passes for 930 yards and seven scores.

    "I think I'm a dynamic runner," Harrington said. "I'm definitely a one-cut guy. My biggest attribute is I can catch the ball out of the backfield. That's something the league is using a lot of. I can definitely bring that to the table."

    At Kingwood, Harrington was the District Offensive Player of the Year. He rushed for 1,210 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior.

    "It was a lot of fun for me in high school," Harrington said. "The best part was playing with all my friends that I played Little League with and grew up with. I definitely miss it."

    Overlooked by recruiters, Harrington has thrived at Lamar. The former freshman All-American was honored with a Kade Harrington Day by the city of Beaumont last year.

    "It was a very positive situation for me at Lamar," said Harrington, who majored in finance and economics. "It was a blessing in disguise that they were my only offer and I didn't have to choose from 15 different schools. I couldn't be any happier with how things worked out."

    Apparently it'll be a cold day in hell before a sports journalist shows some guts and connects the dots on the pattern that repeats over and over ad infinitum with White high school football stars at many positions. I bet more than a few have sons that played football and have been discriminated against. I wish CF had the resources to pay someone to do the research and publish it, though it might only be publicized by a few websites. Even on the alt-right there's virtually zero interest in the Caste System in U.S. sports.

    So true . Most Alt Right simply don't give a damn about sports, especially ones dominated by Blacks. Showing them evidence of anti white recruiting tactics like this article helps our cause but slippery slope getting support from them..

    It is funny you guys bring up the Alt Right a political slant and or group I had never heard of until the election last year. Does Breitbart News ( an internet news site that I originally thought was a National Enquirer type of rag until I checked it out) qualify as Alt Right? Some of their sports articles are of interest but rarely caste specific in any way shape or form. But not too long ago one of the writers was reporting on some Politico article that was castigating the Patriots about their "political outlook" and overall whiteness. The Breitbart guy rightly said the Patriots don't have a political outlook and that in terms of numbers they have the roughly the same black /white player ratio as all the other teams. Then I guess the Politico guy was complaining about the number of white wide receivers on the Pats ( and you know how that would make anyone of us here at caste feel)-- and the Breitbart writer said something like what is it illegal to have white wide receivers now days? Which was an appropriate response. Until recently The Pats have had mainly black oriented teams but what really gets under the skin of many of these journos and twitters isn't how many white O lineman are on the Pats. It is the fact they are excelling at the glory positions that makes them so angry and they lash out by implying the Pats are somehow racist. Makes me sick.

    Don, If there's ever a chance that I can contribute to this, I'd be willing to tell my son's story. I know he wouldn't mind either. I would name names of coaches and programs that told my son directly to our face that they would not recruit a white RB. A quick story, when we went to Clemson's recruit camp some thought that he was Ben Boulware until he got into the RB drills, of course the only white RB in there. After rushing for 3,000 yards his junior year, Dabo still wouldn't make an offer, however, let me be clear. Swinney was not one of the coaches that said he wouldn't offer because he was white.

    CS, I'd certainly love to hear the story of your son, his recruiting process and the racial discrimination he faced. It would shine more light on these injustices. However, I would totally understand not wanting to dox yourself and your son. The cultural Marxist are as nasty as they come and you both could face consequences for being affiliated with this "racist" website.

    CS, if you want to tell your son's story that would be great. I've known for sometime what a gifted RB he is/was, but always respected your privacy. If it can be told from such a personal perspective, maybe we can get some of the many sites that are racially aware to also publicize it. Quite frankly, what we discuss here is an integral part of the big picture, and it's a shame that we're always fighting the good fight alone.

    It certainly would be interesting. But if it is done from that old conservative standby morality play the color blind "dream" that would as usual be futile. But in good news I would guess that the "color blind" rhetoric is not all that long for the world. If anyone has a twitter account ask Clay Travis if he thinks his level of sports media thinks sports is color blind, its just not fashionable.

    "At 6’2″ he has premier size with good athleticism. What really stands out though, as the videos show, is his instinct and ball skills. Though not the fastest or quickest defensive back on the field, he’s likely the smartest. Lloyd is rarely ever out of position."

    Also, Chicago released WR Eddie Royal, a Sumo, a black DT, and a Poly FB today.

    If you scroll down a little on that Bears Website you can see an article & short video about Adam Shaheen. His nickname is "Baby Gronk" and he is already creating a buzz at camp. He is a physical specimen who should become a star on Sundays in the future. The Bears could become a little more watchable team with some more of our guys once they can start winning some more games. Keeping my fingers crossed that they keep moving in the right direction and become a litte more fair toward all the players. Maybe they are learning a little from Greenbay although the Packers are now taking a step backwards.

    Musso should be playing cornerback. He's athletic enough.

    Great stuff Tanner! But I'm afraid as a white WR he'll have to do this every day up until the first game of the season to stand a chance at the 53-man roster.

    Imagine Trubisky throwing to Gentry, Braverman, and Shaheen! Four young stars loaded with potential and production (when allowed to)

    Former 4 star recruit from California and Badger QB Bart Houston has signed with Pittsburgh. College career never panned out but he ended his career on a high note with 11straight completions and a Cotton Bowl victory. Guy to keep an eye on!

    Agreed. He's being racially slotted to FS simply because he's white. He's better suited as a CB size wise. Similar stature and measurables to Tyrann Matheiu and Joe Haden.

    I haven't seen anything! He should have gotten a look or an invite. I've seen him play live and he's as good or better than Eric Breitenstein was. Breitenstein was invited to the Carolina Panthers camp. I mention Breitenstein because they come from similar situations, except EB was a fullback at Wofford and Craine was a true RB and has a similar build, but a little bigger and faster than EB. EB may have been invited to Panthers camp simply because Panther owner Jerry Richardson is also a Wofford alumni.

    Dang another of our athletes gone down the rabbit hole.. Stinks!! Didn't know Panthers owner was Wofford alumni. Makes sense seeing Breitenstein and Bersin having cups of coffee in Carolina, good info CS!
