Bobby Melvin went to a local Orlando (Oklahoma) school and he was a star TE there, but he has a story to it.
Bobby Melvin originally used football just to pass time ,but he realized that he would need hard work and dedication if he wanted to play football. He originally played Linebacker because he didn’t think he was big enough to be a blocking TE. After about 8 weeks into the 'season' he switched his position to TE and realized he was a natural. As a linebacker he wasn’t to good with only 5 tackles, 1 sack, and a deflection in 8 games. As TE on the other hand he stood out. Height and weight and he finished the season with about 500 receiving yards, 8 caught touchdowns, and LNG of 38 yards.
He stayed on pace for his sophomore year in which he led the state in TE receiving yards due to low-caliber TEs in which he finished with 875 receiving yards, 10 caught TDs, and he had a LNG of 42. He was slightly improved but he still remained a top-prospect at his position. He played about 12 games only due to a sprained ankle which finished his season.
He had a successful Junior season in which he won a state title and he was dubbed the greatest TE Oklahoma had ever produced. He was Tight End of the Year and finished with a prolific 1000+ yards finish to the season with a LNG of 54 yards and 17 TDs. He didn’t have many colleges recruiting him due to TEs not being a big deal to fill a spot for. He didn’t think he was gonna end up playing pro but changed his decision after realizing with hard work and good effort. He could consistently play on a good high pace level that electric TEs fill in today's game.
His final season during his High School Season was probably his best. He won another state title where he was recognized the best TE and the best player on that team. His quarterback was a star but it was mostly with Bobby. He never failed to impress during the season in which he had his second 1,000+ yards, 19 TDs, and a LNG of 47 yards. He finished his High School tenure as the school's leading receiver in yards and TDs. He decided he wanted to not go pro again.
Then during the middle of the NCAA season he changed his mind and received a redshirt scholarship to Alabama. The season after he received a full-benefit scholarship. While Melvin hasn’t lived up to the hype right away he still seems to produce a lot of yards in game.
