Prospect report spotlight / Owen Balarinho / 2033 / RB/MLB

December 21, 2022

Evaluated by | Dorrington Myers


Owen is a hidden gem within his age group. I see a foundation that’s been built for him to keep progressing. Owen is a physical presence on the field. At RB he’s a physical runner who just happens to love contact. On defense, he’s a MLB who can play sideline to sideline and loves to hit. Owen has good pursuit angles as well. I can tell that he puts the time in outside of practice to get it correct. I like his high motor, which helps his defensive side. Owen doesn’t miss many tackles if any, and he’s skilled in open field tackling. I think that Owen will grow to be a very special player.


Although very young, Owen is well versed in many areas. I’d like to see Owen master a few skills to prepare him for the next level. On offense, I’d like to see Owen create a pocket when taking a hand-off. This prevents turnovers and keeps points on the board. On defense, I’d like to see Owen lower his center of gravity to generate more power. He does a decent job so far, I believe he can master it.
