Nature Coast Tech RB Tevin Drake isn’t short on talent, but because he lives pretty far away from most in the Bay area, folks in Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties probably don’t realize how good he is. Yet as the Times’ Izzy Gould recently reported, the 6-foot, 205-pound Drake, a senior, has offers from schools such as Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Marshall and Memphis. More offers are likely to come in the coming weeks. Below, you’ll find highlights from the 2009 season, during which Drake rushed for more than 1,500 yards and averaged 7.4 yards per carry.
