There was no question that four-star quarterback Rocky Hinds (6-5, 225, 4.4) from Playa Del Rey (Calif.) Saint Bernard would be one of the most sought after players at any position from the Golden State for the class of 2004. Hinds was injured during a pre-season season and could end up missing the season.
Don’t worry about Hinds, however because he still a hot topic among the nation’s elite teams and why not?
How many 6-foot-5 and 225-pounders do you know that have run a 10.47 100-meter?
We have just described Rocky Hinds.

Everything was coming together for Hinds as he was poised for an outstanding senior season when he was injured in practice scrimmage.
“I tore my ACL during a scrimmage,” Hinds said. “I’ve had it scoped and it’s getting better everyday. I think I may even play again this year.”
“My top four schools are very even,” Hinds said. “One day I like one team then the next I will like another out of my top four schools.”
