It takes a lot of guts to post a highlight tape on scouting websites.

It takes even more guts when you’re Jack Lenihan, a senior wide receiver from Barrington High School outside of Chicago.

Listed at 5’11” & 145 lb’s, Lenihan could be qualified as a “Rudy” type player, but that didn’t stop him from dropping this gem of a recruiting tape earlier this fall.

It’s not the most impressive on-field display I’ve ever seen, but it’s pure gold for very different reasons. (RELATED: Human Guillotine Decapitates Opposing Players In Unbelievable High School Highlight Reel)

Ok, so in terms of actual football talent, that was slightly less than impressive; the one snap he took on the field resulted in a drop.

I. Do. Not. Care.

Jack Lenihan can stand with the best of ’em.

I’m legitimately floored by this kid’s self-confidence. I labored over my highlight tape for months before submitting it, and I was pretty good. If this was an interview, I’d hire this kid immediately.

My favorite part comes at the end, where Jack makes a bold proclamation; Oh, what’s that? You’re a Division III program that wants to give this kid a shot?

Division I offers only, baby.

While he might not have a future in the NFL, something tells me this guy will be just fine.
