CHHS’ Postell, Myhand to sign football scholarships
Published 9:07 pm Tuesday, February 4, 2014
Football players across the United States will sign National Letters of Intent on Wednesday.
A grand total of four Charles Henderson Trojans will take part in the day, including a pair of defensive standouts.
Noseguard Sherrod Postell and defensive back Tedarion Myhand will put their names on scholarships to continue their football careers at the collegiate level.
Postell, a force in the middle of the Charles Henderson defense for three seasons, will sign with Miles College.
Myhand is expected to sign with West Alabama.
Postell anchored the CHHS defense at noseguard the last two seasons in Mike Dean’s 3-4 defense, and picked up All-Area honors in each of the last two seasons.
Charles Henderson offensive coordinator Rodney Jordan handled most of Postell’s recruiting process, and feels the big man is ready to play at the next level.
“Postell is your average interior lineman,” said Jordan. “Yea, he is big, but he isn’t sloppy. He is in shape, and surprisingly quick. His body type is perfect to play inside. He was strong to when he came in to the program, and has got even stronger. He will be a force.”
Postell racked up 74 tackles, including 17 for loss and four sacks, but Jordan said he makes plays that fans rarely see.
“When I sat down over Christmas and did Sherrod’s highlight film, I noticed that Richard (McBryde, CHHS linebacker) was making every tackle,” Jordan said. “Postell is what we call a ‘two-gap player.’ He can play both A’s and occupy two, and sometimes three guys, so the linebackers are free to flow and make the plays. He is a linebacker’s best friend.”
Myhand, a two-time Messenger All-Area selection, finished his senior season with 88 tackles and nine interceptions, two of which he returned for touchdowns.
Jordan said Myhand has a knack for making big plays when his team needs them.
“TD always seems to be in the right place at the right time, Jordan said. “He returned a pick to the house against Beauregard that put the game away, and got another one against Eufaula that gave us some room to breathe a little.”
Myhand also made plays at, or near the line of scrimmage throughout the season, racking up six tackles for loss and four forced fumbles.
“He is a good tackler as well,” Jordan said. “He likes contact, and isn’t afraid to lay a hit.”
Postell and Myhand, along with CHHS stars Hunter Kennedy and John Johnson will take part in a National Signing Day ceremony at the Charles Henderson High School Cafeteria on Wednesday at 9:30 a.m.
