Gridiron Football Diamond In The Rough: Brody Glenn

Brody Glenn is a class of 2022 wide receiver for Bishop Luers High School in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Glenn stands in at 6’1 and 175 lbs., this build allows him to be very versatile and excel in every aspect at receiver. While watching his film it is evident that no defenders are able to keep up with him, which makes sense since he ran a 4.57 40-yard dash. His speed isn’t the only thing DBs fear from Glenn, his route running often ends with defenders on the ground or 10 yards behind him. If all of this wasn’t enough to convince you that he is elite, his stats this season might do it as he racked up 1265 yards and 16 touchdowns! As Brody Glenn enters his senior season, we are excited to see him prove himself and maybe even end his high school journey with a ring.
