A name to remember this fall is that of Reidsville (NC) wide receiver Jerome Simpson, who could be forced to carry the load of his team after registered 1,657 recieving yards and 17 touchdowns last season.

The quarterback from last year's team moved on to college, and Simpson is ready for the challenge.

"We have two quarterbacks trying for that position, and I am not sure which will play," says the 6-foot-2, 175 pounder.

"I just know that I am ready to pick up the slack and take our team back to the championship. They are putting new stuff in to make sure that I can get the ball in my hands."

Simpson learned quite a bit over the summer taking in camps and working on his speed for the season. The best part of Simpson's reportoir would be his vision as much of the yardage came in the form of wide receiver screens and making people miss. Colleges are certainly take note.

"I went to a lot of camps this summer, including East Carolina, Virginia Tech, and North Carolina, and that was about it," added Simpson.

"East Carolina gave me an official offer, but I want to keep my options open and wait to see who will offer. I am going to wait until the season is over and take some visits to schools. I like those schools, and I am also taking a look at NC State, Wake Forest, and Clemson."

Simpson is being recruited to Clemson by quarterbacks coach Mike O'Cain. We will continue to keep you updated Jerome Simpson, right up through signing day 2004.
