If Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey wide receiver David Gettis (6-4, 198, 4.3) isn’t the fastest wide receiver on the west coast he is among an elite few who are at the top. Gettis has a super high ceiling and has unlimited potential.
Gettis was selected second-team all-league as a junior after catching 24 passes for 496 yards and scored seven touchdowns. He averaged 20.7 yards per catch.
This young man sure impressed Dorsey assistant coach Ralph Caldwell.
“David is a phenom and has it all,” Caldwell said. “He is the first in the state to win back-to-back 400-meter titles and if he wins again next spring he will have won it three years in a row.”
“Though he is super talent on the track,” Caldwell said. “His passion is football.”
That’s right folks, Gettis defended and won the state 400-meter championship this past spring and now holds the Los Angeles City record with a time of 46.3.
The 400-meter is a man’s race and Gettis is the man. He is a very motivated young man who has his eyes on the Olympic games in Beijing in 2008.
Gettis will participate in both football and track on the next level. He has offers on the table from Washington, Arizona and Arizona State. He is getting steady recruiting action from USC, UCLA, Oregon, LSU and Notre Dame.
All eight schools are interested in Gettis as a two-sport athlete.
When is Gettis going to make his decision?
“It seems kind of complicated because I want to go to a school that has good football and track programs,” Gettis said. “I will probably wait until signing day to make my decision.”
Gettis will sign a football letter-of-intent and not one for track.
