    I found this gem of a player a running back 6ft 1 215 lbs with 4.44 speed being recruited by almost every big school on the west coast. He already has 2 offers from UCLA and Stanford. Get this he is a 4 star running back on rivals it took me a while to find his picture he is defenitely white. We should keep an eye on this kid seems like the real deal.

    WP, "Caucasian Rivals" has now switched Gaffney's status to FB. I knew this would happen, when their scouting team got together and all realized he's white. Simply insane; a FB with 4.44 speed who rushed for 1500+ yards on 7.5 YPC and 24 TDs against a difficult Prep level of competition in Cali. "Caucasian Rivals" are white peoples enemy! Yes he is still in the top 100, but not as a RB. [​IMG]

    It dosen't matter to me he will go to a school like Stanford who will let him play running back screw racist rivals. Rivals is just trying to be politically correct, but they really don't know how with out insulting their white informed fan base. It happened last year with Sausan Shankeran. He went to BYU as a running back so once again screw rivals and their black loving employees

    There are no photos on Tyler's profile, so I looked this one up from his combine.

    His time of 4.44 sec in the 40 was timed at the Army All American Combine in San Antonio, so it is legit.

    There is another Tylor with similar size and speed numbers Tyler Tabor that is being recruited extemely hard by TCU. How long before rivals makes him a fullback as well obviously 6ft 1 215lbs they cant run 4.4 has to be a typo. Anyway rivals is full of bovine excriment if you know what I mean. These boys are both studs that have a bright future in college football. Edited by: White Power

    WP: I hope that's true, but I didn't see any offers from any of the schools listed on Tyler Tabor's Scout.com profile including TCU. Simply insane, this is a guy who ran for 8.3 YPC against tough Texas Competition and runs a 4.42 40 yard dash (according to Rivals), squats 550, has a vertical of 33 inches and runs a 4.26 SS to boot. Somebody get off their a$$ and offer this kid! You just don't find athletes like that.

    2006 (So.) 155-1,254-8.1-21 TD
    2007 (Jr.) 126-1,046-8.3-12 TD

    And look at the black guys getting Div. IA offers at RB. Check my "If white he couldn't play Div. 3 thread" You'd have to be blind to deny the caste system!

    Well i guess scout feels they better play catch up with Rivals because now they have moved Gaffney to the number four fullback in the nation as well [​IMG]. THat is ridiculous, he goes form number 32 running back to number four fullback [​IMG]

    Well maybe Scout.com moved Gaffney to FB because they felt they had to make up for the fact that they moved up Brandon Wegher two spots from the #16 RB in the nation to #14. Ryan Swoope was moved down two spots to #40 overall, but they moved in Shane McCullen into the top 100 at RB to #88 overall. Scout also moved Rex Burkhead from a top 30 Safety to the #33 WR overall, but Rex should really be a RB not a WR, that is his more natural position. The same goes for Michael Campanaro, he should be a RB or CB not the #56 WR.

    Scout also foolishly has Hunter Furr as a Safety. Still Scout is much better than white extermination SINISTER SOULLESS Rivals.com. Rivals is the number one enemy of this site and anyone who has even a drop of fairness or integrity as a person. It is clearly more than differing analysis. To be that anti-white you know something is going on politically with those wackos! Scout is in the middle of the pack to fairness toward whites, RIVALS is in cohorts with the United Negro College Fund and the NAACP completely at the expense of any white athlete. [​IMG]

    Yeah it is still dissapointing to see gaffney moved. I guess i shouldn't get too down that he is listed as a Fullback, it does not mean that he will not play running back in college. Scout is still ten times better than Rivals even though they stick with the flow of the caste system as well.

    Seems like it should be very hard for schools to recruit such a talent with his blend of power and speed to fullback. Here's a recent article of his amazing performance in the state championship game. http://www.nctimes.com/articles/2008/12/20/sports/highschool /z478efc164f4156a188257526001e61f6.txt

    I don't understand why Tyler is ranked as a fullback on rivals.com. All his stats from size, weight, speed, yards per carry, etc. etc. are right in line with the top 4 RB's on rivals. On top of that in the recent championship (see caption below), he not only ran for 329 yards, he dominated on defense and special teams. How can coaches at the next level ignore all that, make him bulk up, and just block? It doesn't make any sense?!

    "Gaffney scored all five of his team's touchdowns, had a record-setting
    329 yards rushing, caught two passes for 23 yards, completed a pass for
    30 yards, had six tackles on defense and blocked a kick. All that was
    enough to lead the Dons to a thrilling 37-34 victory over Stockton St.
    Mary's in the Division II title game at the Home Depot Center."- nctimes.com

    Our prayers have been answered he is going to Stanford to be a running back hopefully he and Gerhart can be in the backfield together some during the upcoming football season at Stanford. Gaffney will be a star at Stanford, and will continue to keep the running back postion white for many years to come. I am so happy for the Stanford program they will be hard to stop next year with those two horses in the backfield. I think he Gaffney understood where he needed to go in order to play the postion he wanted to play in college. I hope other players follow when they pick where they want to play college football.

    This is great news! Stanford will be a team to cheer for next year. [​IMG] I just looked at scout, and 11 of the 21 current Stanford recruits are white. They are currently 10th best recruiting class.

    6ft 1 215 lbs with 4.44 speed who rushed for 1500+ yards on 7.5 YPC and 24 TDs considered a fullback? He looks strong in his picture but he doesnt look like he has the frame for being a fullback. He looks like a halfback.

    Stepfan Taylor is the black RB also recruited by Stanford and he is in the Rivals 250. I believe both these guys will get carries at Stanford, but Gaffney will turn out to be better. 300+ yards rushing in the California State Championship against the best competition in the state is amazing.

    Gaffney is a stud and it is disgusting that he is a FB and not in the Rivals 250. Rivals had Gaffney in the Rivals 100 back in August, before by my analysis, they realized he was white. They must have thought he was black because the one photo they had of him looks black from the distance. Then when the whole team got together and they realized his he had a melanin deficiency those weasels decided "Wait a white RB in the Rivals 100, no way! We'll move him to FB and then slowly down our rankings no matter how well he plays!"

    Gaffney could be the next Gerhart. He plays baseball as well just like Touchdown Toby. I hope Gaffney sticks with football though no matter how uphill the battle against racism is for him as a white RB.

    Good luck to Gaffney and I believe he is a little faster than Mr. Gerhart (although probably not quite as powerful). I think both of these men have that impressive agility for a big RB and could be Chris Beanie Wells types if given the chance. Go Gaffney! Touchdown Tyler!

    Here's his latest highlights on Youtube. He looks very close in talent and style to Cierre Wood. An incredible prospect; which is probably why Rivals originally had him in their top 100 players; before they discovered that the photo of him they had posted, that certainly looked like he had black skin, was actually white skin.

    I think this kid has more talent than Toby Gerhart; who I would compare to Cedric Scott or a slightly poorer version of Beanie Wells. I would probably have Gerhart ranked 6th overall at RB if he had declared this year; it's a deep RB class and Gerhart also has a knee injury history. Gaffney seems a little faster with better change of direction skills than Gerhart, but doesn't quite posess Toby's power; but I favor the elusive style a little more.

    He's a very patient runner. Im impressed its hard to come up with a LEGIT reason he is not ranked as a running back on scout or rivals. I agree Tough J with your analysis comparing Toby and Ty

    He is incredible. He makes cuts better than a barber![​IMG]This kid is not a fullback. He is a legitimate running back with good speed, power and the moves of a dancer. Way to go Stanford!

    Would you guys agree that Gaffney is very similar in talent, style and frame to Cierre Wood who is Lemming's #3 RB overall? Gaffney has a very similar build to Cierre. On top of both having filled out frames and being around 6 foot, both these guys are very elusive and can also run you over when their is no room or time to break some ankles with their amazing moves. Both also run in the 4.4 range in the 40 yard dash. Gaffney also had 300+ yards rushing in the state championship game.

    But Cierre is a top tailback prospect and in the Rivals 100. Gaffney is listed as a FB on Rivals and not even in the Rivals 250...Different skin different results. [​IMG]

    That is a good comparison TJR. I find it just baffling as to how sites like Rivals can just label kids at random despite evidence to the contrary. Their agenda is so obvious that a kindegarten kid should see through it. Only in America and so it continues. Generations of white football players slotted and forced to fit other people's agenda. We are making a little progress however and that is why we have to continue the fight. Gaffney should be an excellent college rb if he is given every opportunity to start. I will keep my fingers crossed.
