Cody Prewitt was one of the stars of the today on practice day one of the Reese’s Senior Bowl.This safety from Bay Springs, Miss. was everywhere, looking the best of all the secondary standouts in Mobile, Ala.
”Day one was fun,” Prewitt said. “There’s a lot to learn and there was a lot of install. I just went out there and played as fast as possible. I have to say that I was impressed with my performance but I know I need to get better out here.”
Prewitt, 6-foot-2, 217-pounds, was all over the place. He played near the box and in a single high formation. The results were pretty much the same, as Prewitt had pass breakups, interceptions or always in position to make plays. He loves the idea of moving all around and helping out his defense.
”Absolutely,” Prewitt said. “I love football and trust coaches. You have to and it’s their job. They know where to put me and be productive for the team no matter the position.
”I like lining up in the box or in centerfield. There you see everything and you can chase things down. Then I am sometimes lined up in the box. I like the action on the front line.”
Prewitt was part the class of 2011. He signed with Ole Miss and was a huge part of their resurgence in Oxford for the Rebels.
”Our class, the guys I came in with, set some goals,” Prewitt said. “One was to leave Ole Miss in better shape than we showed up. I know we played a large part in that which is so gratifying. I can walk away proud knowing that we achieved that goal.
”To leave that way is a great feeling because all 120 teammates there are my brothers. There was a camaraderie in that locker room. We all went through the tough times and the fun times and it’s something that I will never forget.”
Certainly Ole Miss head coach Huge Feeze has done a terrific job since taking over the program and Prewitt said he gets everyone to play hard.
”He just brings out the best of you and that goes for the entire team,” Prewitt said. “He gets you to play for the guy next to you and you are proud to do that. He’s done a great job.”Related stories: NFL Rosters Breakdown Series
