HUDSON -- In Hudson’s 17-14 loss to Gulf last week, Cobras WR Jamie Tello had 10 catches for 91 yards and a touchdown.

But according to his coach, Tello didn‘t play his best.

“Actually, he didn’t have a very good night for him,” Hudson coach Mark Nash said. “And it was still a solid performance.”

Translation: Nash thinks Tello, a transfer from Land O'Lakes who caught 20 passes for 243 yards in 2008, can be very, very good this season.

“He has the potential to be one of the best I’ve ever coached,” Nash said. “He’s got all the tools. He’s got above-average speed, and he’s the best route runner I’ve coached.”

With Zack Wynn at QB, Hudson will throw it and catch it a lot.

That means Tello will have plenty of chances. For starters, at least.

“More and more teams will probably double cover him or scheme to him,” Nash said.

Problem? Not really, the coach said.

“We’ve got five receivers that are very good,” according to Nash.

The other four to watch: Dontaie Collins, Alex Graham, Brandon Jones and Mike Powers.
