High on the Tide

Desmond Jennings is one of the top athletes in Alabama. The 6-2, 180 pound athlete was in Tuscaloosa, for the second week in a row, to watch Alabama dismantle Ole Miss 28-7.

"It was a good game. Alabama is really playing this year. I was more impressed this past week, because they beat a better team. I thought the game would be a lot closer, but Alabama is really playing," said Desmond Jennings.

Jennings was able to speak with one coach during his visit, but not a football coach.

"I spoke with one of the Alabama baseball coaches. I talked to Coach Butler. He told me that I could play both football and baseball. I just need to talk to the football coaches about it. That is what I really wanted to hear."

With two visits to Tuscaloosa, Alabama is now leading over Georgia.

"Alabama is leading now. I haven't really heard much from Georgia, in a while. I have been going down to Alabama more," said Jennings.

Jennings and best friend, Terrell Smith, both have Alabama as their leader.

"We have mentioned playing together. It would be really nice."

Though Jennings has a leader, he will wait to make his decision.

"I am still going to wait. It will probably be after the season, when I make my decision."

"I was planning on going to the Auburn/LSU game. I don't know if the game is going to get canceled or not, but I am planning to go. I know I am going to go to some more Alabama games. I know I will go to the game against Auburn and Mississippi State."

"I have received calls from Ole Miss, Alabama, Auburn, and Georgia." Jennings added.

Due to Hurricane Ivan, all high schools in Alabama have closed and all high school football games have been canceled for the weekend.

"Today was our last day at school. It is really crazy. We were suppose to play Erwin on Friday night. We play Hewitt-Trussville towards the end of the season, and we are going to move the Erwin game to that week, and play Hewitt the next. The season has been going good. We are 3-0," said Jennings.
