Isaac Keeping the Mailman Busy

Natchez High is rapidly becoming one of south Mississippi's most talked about programs. The 6A playoffs held a spot for NHS this past year and heading into spring football 2010 another post season appearance is expected. One of the key reasons why the program is having some success is a strong senior class lead by defensive back Brian Isaac.

"I am getting letters from Alabama, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Tennessee, Notre Dame, Kansas, Kansas State, Michigan, Michigan State, LSU, Harvard, Arkansas State and a few more," said Brian. "Nobody has offered me yet, but if I had gone to Mississippi for their junior day I think they would have offered me. I am going to the next one though."

Ther versatile standout from Adams County has made plays from several positions on the prep level. College recruiters are talking about him as a member of the secondary once he leaves Natchez High.

"Everybody is talking about safety," said Isaac. "People say I can cover like a corner. On offense I run the wildcat and play receiver. I think in college I am going to play on defense, but it doesn't really matter to me. I will play whatever."

While many prospects are talking about facilities and championship possibilities, Brian is looking hard at the people recruiting him.

"I am looking for a great coach like my coach (Coach Lance Reed)," said Isaac. "I want someone to understand me when I am down and stay on me to make sure I do my best. Coach Reed does that and I want somebody like him in college."

Geography is not a major factor to Brian, but he would like to be within a day's drive from home.

"I don't want to be too far away from home. I don't mind getting out some, but not so far I can't drive home," explained Isaac. "You never know something might be going on at home. I also want my family to be able to see me play. That's important."

Brian's fans will have the chance to see him in action quite a bit over the course of the next few months.

"I am playing baseball now. We start spring football in May," said Isaac. "I play summer league baseball for the Mississippi Jaguars, so I will be doing that once the summer starts. I am hoping to attend some college camps too. Maybe I can go to Notre Dame or Nebraska or somewhere like that. I want to go somewhere I haven't been before."
