The 6-5, 280-pound lineman was a two-way standout for Lowndes High School, one of the top football powers in south Georgia this season. The Vikings were upset 10-7 by Camden County in the second round of the state playoffs.
"The season was alright," says Christian, whose team ended the year with a 10-2 record. "I finished out doing more than most people did in their high school career so I feel good about that, but I could have done more."
Next on his sports agenda is a trip to Columbus later this month. "I am going to play in the North-South All-Star Game on Dec. 29th," he says. "I am leaving the day after Christmas for practice."
In the spring Christian will join the Lowndes High track and field team and compete in the shot put.
Christian took an unofficial visit to Auburn last week to check out the Tigers in their game vs. Alabama. "I liked the game and it was real close one," he says. "We jumped out early and played well. I noticed how hard Auburn played. It was a tough game to lose and I felt for the players."
Christian, who originally committed to Florida State before changing his mind and deciding to chose Auburn this fall, says he feels good about his college choice. "I?am loving my decision to go to Auburn," he says.
