Picture 28 2011 Numerical Roster Countdown: No. 43 Jeron Gouveia WinslowWith 43 days left until Virginia Tech takes the field against Appalachian State, we turn our attention to number 43 on the roster, Mr. Jeron Gouveia-Winslow. GW experienced some ups and downs as a first year starter on defense last year. He struggled mightily early on in the season, especially against Boise State but seemed to improve with each and every snap. With a solid spring practice under his belt, GW should be an improved player this fall and should develop into a little bit more of a playmaker at the WHIP linebacker position.

Stats

Height: 6’2”
Weight: 195 lbs
Position: WHIP Linebacker
Year: R-Junior
High School: Stone Bridge High School

How Did He Get Here

Son of former NFL Linebacker Kurt Gouveia, Jeron found himself choosing between two scholarship offers from Virginia Tech and Stanford out of high school. GW was not highly touted but he did received interest from most of the schools in the region. He wound up picking Virginia Tech on May 29th, 2007.

2010 Season

I’m sure Jeron would love to receive a mulligan and restart the 2010 season from the beginning. Too bad this isn’t NCAA Football 12. GW struggled against Boise State and JMU, missing open field tackles and struggling on key assignments. However, the now junior linebacker did improve as the season went along and even scored a touchdown on an INT return against Florida State.

2011 Prospectus

For the Virginia Tech defense to improve, they’re going to need improved play at defensive end, WHIP linebacker, Backer, and strongside safety. Three of those four spots are breaking in new players but even with that youth, the level of play should increase. The one spot where a starter will return is at WHIP linebacker, which will feature Gouveia-Winslow.

GW looked better this spring. He was more confident and he actually looked like he belonged out on the field. Now whether or not that will transition over to this fall remains to be seen but GW is a good athlete and a smart kid, the more reps he’ll get the better he’ll become at WHIP. Remember, Cody Grimm was a nobody until his junior season. Hopefully GW follows a similar career path.

Career Highlight

His INT return against Florida State.

Completely made up fact

To improve his tackling over the summer, GW made it his mission to watch the movie “The Waterboy” 100 times. Let’s hope he’s found his “tacklin fuel.”

I wonder why Keith Marshall shunned us so early. I mean he said he wanted to play in a run-heavy, pro-style offense. Thats what we pride our offense off of, but oh well thats his loss! I hurd that Trey Edmunds is still interested in us and that he will make his decision soon. I also hurd that Kenneth Crawley was a lean im no so sure if thats the case as of recently with all of the players that has recruited to us.

I could see Crawley’s recruitment end up a lot like Michael Holmes last season where he just randomly commits to us one day. However, I honestly don’t know if we have the room for him so we’ll see.

Marshall wants to go to the SEC. Simple as that.
