"No, I get after it pretty good," Bart Eddins said with a laugh when asked if he was as quiet on the field as he was off of it. "I'm pretty vocal out there. I like being the leader, and I like having my teammates look to me."
Trinity Presbyterian lost roughly 11 starters by Eddins' count including most of
the offensive line. Eddins will need to step up as an even bigger leader this
year. That is a task that he is not afraid of.
"I've told the coaches that if they need me on the offensive line, I'd play
there. But they haven't said anything yet, so I don't know," said the 6-4
and 260 pound Eddins.
Eddins is the type of player with the talent to play anywhere in the country,
but it's not likely that he goes too far from home.
"I've gotten offers so far from Auburn, Louisville, and Alabama. I went to
the Auburn games last year to see my brother (Bret Eddins) play. I'm going to
the Auburn Summer Camp for sure, but after that I don't know where I'm
Eddins was selected to play in the Alabama North/South Game in December, and
that won't be the last honor for the big lineman. Does he have a timetable on
when he would like to make a decision?
"Not really. I'd like to make it in January before all of the official
visits and signing day and everything, but I don't know for sure. I kind of like
to keep things low key."
There's nothing low key about Eddins on the field, and he is one of the top
prospects in the south this year.
