Prattville Lineman Attracting Collegiate Attention

This prospect should be a key player this fall for Class 6A high school football power Prattville High.

Prattville, Ala.--Bobby Greenwood wrapped up his summer camp season with a solid performance at a one-day camp at Auburn University.

The six-foot-six, 240-pounder was one of the more promising looking rising seniors at the session and is expected to be a key player on one of the state's top big school high school football powers.

"We have been working our tails off to get ready for the season," Greenwood tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "We are ready to go. I really want to win a state title this year. I want it badly. Our team wants it."

Greenwood, who also plays center on the Prattville High basketball team, moves well for a big man with a best 40-yard dash time of 4.8. His combination of size, agility and being an honor student have made him a major college prospect even though his senior season will be just his second as a starter in the Prattville High 4-3 defensive alignment.

"I played defensive end last year, but how things are looking for this year I will play defensive tackle," he says.

Bobby Greenwood runs through a drill at Auburn's one-day football camp.

He has early scholarship offers from Vanderbilt, Southern Miss and Alabama. He doesn't have one yet from Auburn, but says the Tigers are a team he will consider. "I am interested in Auburn. It is a good school and I have a lot of friends who go to Auburn."

Greenwood not only showed coaches at the Auburn camp what he could do, he also added to his football knowledge. "The summer camps are helpful because you get to work with a lot of different people," he notes. "I learned more details on my techniques."

Going into his senior season, the lineman says that he will continue to work on improving his quickness. He says that he considers his technique his strength as a football player.

Greenwood says he didn't grow up as a fan of any particular college. "To tell the truth, not really," he says. The defensive lineman says he talked to Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville on his visit to the AU camp and says the coach had some advice. "He talked about the program and said to go to a school where you feel comfortable with the people around you."
