The defensive end is keeping busy this summer, handling a job that requires moving boxes all day. When he is not working at the job, he can often be found working out at Williamson High.
"My summer is going fine," Coleman tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "I go work out for about an hour after I get off work. I will do a lot of squatting and bench presses and I run,"
Looking taller than he was when he wrapped up an impressive junior season in which he made 116 tackles, Coleman says, "I am 6-1 now and I have got time to grow. I am 16. I will turn 17 in December."
Coleman says he is looking forward to his senior season for the Lions. "We are going to have a real good team," he predicts. "Even though we are moving to 6A, we believe we can still win the state. I am going to try to lead my team to the championship."
Coleman is one of three Williamson players who are committed to play for the 2009 Tigers joining former WHS star Nick Fairley, who is a sophomore in junior college, and Monday night commitment LaVoyd James, a speedy wide receiver.
James was a standout at Auburn's two-day camp last weekend. Coleman was there to check out the scene and give his teammate moral support. He notes that he liked the way James performed working out against prospects from across the southeast.
Coleman, who didn't drill at the camp, says he feels good about his Auburn commitment after spending time with coaches and others at AU. "I am not planning to go to any other camps," he says. "I might look around a little bit, but right now I am at Auburn. Everything is good with the Tigers."
