MS/AL All-Star: James Northern

Rosa Fort has turned out a pair of D1 prospects in the past couple of years in Donald Hawkins and Bernardrick McKinney. The Tunica, Mississippi program has a talented senior this year ready for his shot in James Northern. James is working hard this week to get a win for Mississippi in the Mississippi/Alabama Al-Star game.

"It's been a lot of fun," said James. "There is a lot of talent out here with the best players in Mississippi.

"I have never had an experience like this before."

Northern is excited to have some time away from home to celebrate Mississippi football talent and try to get a victory.

"It's different being away from home," said James. "I have enjoyed getting to know my teammates and have the chance to represent my team down here."

Several college programs have shown interest in the talented Northern.

"I have been hearing from Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Kentucky and a few more schools," said James. "Ole Miss and Mississippi State have talked about offering me.

"I am going to visit Ole Miss soon, but I am not sure when."

James reports that he is getting recruited to play either of the safety positions, but he will line up outside linebacker this week in the All-Star game.
