The 6-1, 185 pound speedster had an impressive sophomore campaign. Saintil averaged 149 all-purpose yards per game while catching 33 passes for a 16.2 yards per catch average. The Highland standout was named 1st team All Kansas Junior College as a receiver and a return specialist. Clemson running back Duane Coleman is a former teammate with Saintil.

Saintil currently has offers from Hawaii, Temple and Utah State, but expect that list to grow as he is receiving interest from Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Central Florida, Iowa and Iowa State among others.

The talented prospect is not ready to go on record with a leader but he does have several favorites. "My top 5 would be Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Miami and North Carolina State. I would love to play for Clemson or North Carolina State." Saintil stated that the Tigers are showing the most interest of his favorites.

Highland Head Coach Marty Allen believes Saintil will be an outstanding receiver on the collegiate level. "He's a great player. This kid can play. He can run. He can catch and go up and get the football. He's got such moves."

The former Naples standout would love to play with his former teammate and good friend Duane Coleman. "I would love to play with Duane. He's my homeboy. We are great friends. We played Pop Warner football together. We played little league together. We went to elementary school, middle school and high school together."

Saintil is on schedule to graduate in May and qualifying should not be a problem according to his head coach. "Yes I think he will have the grades. He only needs about 12 or 13 hours next semester."

We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding JUCO receiver, right up through signing day 2004.
