Hinsley will play anywhere

NORCROSS, Ga. – Seth Hinsley feels he could be the next Rennie Curran. He is a fierce competitor that plays both fullback and linebacker, but schools are telling him they wish he was a little taller. He is not hearing that.

"I am not listening to them when they tell me that they wish I was a couple inches taller," said Seth Hinsley. "I believe I can be like Rennie Curran and play Division I football. I saw Rennie Curran play at Georgia and people told him he was too short in high school too. I think I can be that type of player."

Curran started as a freshman at Georgia, played three years in Athens, and was selected by the Tennessee Titans in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Hinsley wants college coaches to see what he did and envision himself doing the same on the next level.

"I can hit, I may a lot of tackles, and I can play fullback too. I am willing to play anywhere for anyone that will give me a chance. I had 133 tackles last season, so I feel like I have proved myself, but I will do whatever I need to because I want to show everyone what I can do."

Right now, the 5-foot-9, 227 pound senior is hearing from Jacksonville State with Eastern Kentucky showing some interest as well. Hinsley is happy that those schools are interested, but he still believes he can play in an elite conference.

"I love the SEC and I think I can play at the highest level of college football," he said. "I really like Georgia and South Carolina. I hope to hear from those schools and anyone else this season. I will play linebacker, fullback, or whatever they want me to."
