Quarterback Michael Edminston's Cleveland team in Cleveland, TN struggled to a 4-7 record last year, but that bit of adversity has made a veteran team hungry.

"We return 19 starters," said Edminston. "We've been working out hard this summer, and we're shooting for a state championship."

Edminston is one of the top overall athletes in the state of Tennessee, and where he ends up playing on the next level is still up in the air.

"A lot of teams are recruiting me to play defensive back. I'd love to play quarterback or wide receiver; I've even thought about playing a little bit of tailback."

At 6-3 and 205 pounds with 4.52 speed, Edminston is going to have a lot of options for positions on the next level. He hasn't received any offers yet, but he has several schools that have mutual interest.

"I'm looking at Marshall, Ole Miss, Auburn, MTSU, and Georgia would probably be my 5th school. I'm going to try and get to camps at Auburn and Ole Miss."
