Rich is on the Come Up

The cornerback position has changed over the course of the last few year as college coaches have elected to recruit bigger wideouts to make plays down the field. Pascagoula junior Brandon Rich has the size and skill set to compete with the bigger receivers out in the pass pattern these days.

"I play corner, but I got to play a little receiver towards the end of the season," said Rich. "I am looking forward to playing both this season.

"I am a fast runner and when the ball comes my way I can go get it and take it back for a touchdown.

"I like to come up and make tackles too."

Rich is optimistic about his team's chances in 2012.

"We have a good defensive coming back," said Rich. "I think we can make it if everybody works hard."

Rich is considering casting his lot with a program across state lines.

"I like South Alabama, LSU and some of the other schools around here," said Rich. "I like Southern Miss a lot too, but I am thinking about going out of state."
