East Paulding struggled on the filed last year, but this should be a new season all together with 28 seniors returning from a young team. The biggest of the bunch is offensive lineman/defensive tackle Paul Duncan. At 6-6 and 270 pounds, Duncan moves so well that he has played tight end in his career, and he is also a star basketball player.
Just as important, Duncan gets it done in the classroom as well as on the field,
and he will have no trouble becoming a full qualifier. He is looking for a good
opportunity in football as well as academically. He has not received any formal
offers yet, but by the time the spring evaluation period rolls around as well as
summer camp season, Duncan is going to have his choice of schools.
"Right now I like Georgia, Duke, Auburn, Navy, and Notre Dame," said
Duncan when pressed to name five teams he is looking at. "I'm still looking
at everyone though."
What does Duncan like about each of the schools he has named?
Georgia: "Most of my family went to school there" - Edge Bulldogs
Duke: "The campus is really nice, and I like the Academics."
Auburn: "I like the school as well as the football team."
Navy: "When you get a degree from Navy, you are set for life"
Notre Dame: "I like the tradition of Notre Dame."
Duncan played some tight end last season and competed in Sandy Creek's passing
league last summer at the position. He is absolutely huge and will only get
bigger. I got a chance to scout him against Hiram last year, and he jumped off
the screen as the big interior lineman that could move so well on defense. He
prefers to play offensive line though, and he has all the potential in the world
at offensive tackle.
