Class of 2016: Part 5

Five more young men have chosen attend Greenville this fall! Help us welcome these five young men to the family.

Name: Kevin Dowdy
Hometown: Visalia, CA
High School: Mt. Whitney High School
Position: Defensive End
Honors/Awards: Defensive lineman of the year
Major: Education
Why did he choose Greenville: “I chose Greenville to better my education at a school that I believe will give me the best opportunity to succeed. I have also chosen to adopt the panther ways on the football field.”

Coach Schomaker: “Kevin is a tremendous young man and we are excited he will be joining us in the fall.  On the field Kevin brings a ferocious pass rush and a fantastic motor.  He is a great addition to our program.”

Name: Anthony Longsworth
Hometown: Pomona, CA
High School: Ganesha High School
Position: Running Back, Safety, Linebacker
Awards/ Honors: 1st team all league Running Back, 2nd team all league Defensive back, Linebacker
Major: Criminal Justice/Business
Why did he choose Greenville: “I chose Greenville because I felt they would give me the best opportunity for my education, furthering my career in football as well as growing and developing as a young man. Coach Flannery always kept me in the loop of things we talked almost everyday and it wasn’t always about football. He showed interested in my well being and I’m excited for what my future holds as a panther! #EMAP
Coach Flannery: It has been an absolute blessing recruiting Anthony!  The first thing that wowed me about Anthony was his highlights on both offense and defense.  It did not matter which side of the football he was on or what position, he was making plays!  Anthony will join us on offense at either our T-Back or H-Back position as his skill set fits both positions; he is deadly with the football in his hands, he has break away speed, and he can make plays in the passing game.  The other WOW factor is that Anthony takes care of business off the field academically and in his growth as a young man.  A great fit for the EMAP family. 

Name: Justin V Howard
Hometown:  McDonough, GA
High School: Henry County High
Position: RB/SS
Major: Graphic Design
Why did he choose Greenville: “ I like the coaches and the team atmosphere.”
Coach Laune:Justin is a great young man and football player. I can't wait for Justin to get on campus in August. Justin has a huge amount of potential and athletic ability. I know that he will do great things during his career at Greenville.”

Name: Chris Moore
Hometown: Belleville, IL
High School: Belleville West HS
Position: Center/Fullback
Awards/Honors: All-City Offensive lineman, 3rd team All-Conference, Student-Athlete Award
Major: Pre-Medicine/Biology
Why did He Choose Greenville: I love the family bondage between the coaches and players. Everyday is a competition and a way to meet new people while having an amazing time. As soon as I walked onto campus and met the coaches/players, they made me feel at home.

Coach Flannery: When I went to Belleville West High School on a recruiting trip Coach Pettus raved to me about Chris.  He spoke very highly of Chris’s work ethic, leadership, and desire to get better each day.  On top of that Chris also strived for excellence in the classroom as he had one of the top GPA’s on the team.  Those intangibles are exactly what we look for when recruiting high school football players.  We are thrilled that Chris will be joining the EMAP family this fall as he will play center and long snapper.

Name: Jeremy Howard
High School: Henry County High School, GA
Hometown: Detroit, MI
Position: Defensive Tackle
Major: Education
Why he chose Greenville: “I liked the coaches, the team atmosphere, it’s great surroundings and a it’s welcoming place to be!”

Coach Laune: Jeremy has great size and strength. He was a physically dominant high school player. I love the way he competes physically. I'm very excited about having Jeremy wearing orange and black in the fall!”
