Profle 2003 - Kregg Lumpkin (RB) 
Last season, running back Kregg Lumpkin had 13 consecutive 100-yard rushing games. The senior to be from Stephenson High School in Stone Mountain, Georgia, established himself as one of the top backs in the Class of 2003. 
"In my opinion, Kregg Lumpkin is the best all-around running back in the country," said Stephenson Head Coach Ron Gartrell. "He has the ability, speed, strength and the mental approach to be an exceptional player. Plus, Kregg is a great kid." 

The bottom line is that he is an explosive running back with potentially great size that the college coaches covet. 

"I think I am a balanced runner," said Lumpkin. "I have power, elusiveness and speed. I can see the holes and I try to and explode through them. I can run wide or between the tackles. I like it all." 

Lumpkin says he is open between Georgia, LSU, Miami, Florida, Michigan and Auburn. Location will be important to him. 

"I want to play close to home. I have to be near my mom and dad because we are a close family." 

Last weekend, Lumpkin went to Athens to watch a UGA spring practice. Last summer, he camped at Auburn. Those are the only two schools he has seen unofficially thus far.

Profle 2003 - Larry White (LB) 
Tackling Machine. That's the first description that comes to mind when hearing about Larry White. White has led Banneker in tackling as both a sophomore and a junior while occupying a defense that included all stars Greg Blue and Tyrone Cox. He had 152 tackles and a nose for the ball, forcing 12 turnovers and scoring 7 defensive TD's last season. 

Banneker lost a lot of seniors this past season, but they will be returning the tackling machine Larry White. It's not out of the question to think that he could get 200 tackles on a young team that will rely on him for a lot of leadership. That's an assumption that has not escaped the attention of White either. "I'd like to finish the season with 175 tackles, 10 sacks, 7 INT's, and 4 defensive touchdowns this coming season," said White. "When it's all said and done, I'd like to have my choice of schools to go to at the end of the season. Those are the personal goals I have set for myself this year."

When it comes to the school of his choice, White is looking the hardest at UGA, Florida, LSU, Georgia Tech, and Florida State. "I haven't thought about any camps that I'm going to yet this summer, but all of those schools want me to come visit them."

White is a standout both on and off the field and should not have any trouble qualifying. "Right now I have a 3.3 GPA, and I got a 117 on my PSAT, which is like getting a 1170 on the SAT. I'm taking the SAT for the first time on March 16th."

While he is to modest to say it, his numbers back up the statement that White has the quintessential skills to star at linebacker. When asked what makes him a standout player, White responded with what sounds like music to the ears of defensive coordinators around the nation, "I'm quick, and I love contact. I also have good instincts, so I can see the play develop fast."

Fast, mean, and smart, the three things that make the best linebackers so near and dear to our hearts. Larry White is all three and then some.

Profle 2003 - Kenyari Addison (ATH) 
Kenyari Addison is an athlete from Jonesboro High School that excels on both sides of the ball. "I play quarterback and safety right now," said Addison. "I think I like playing defense a little bit better, because I love the contact. But, I also like playing quarterback, because you control the team at QB and the rest of the team looks up to you for leadership."

Addison's busy baseball schedule will probably keep him away from most camps this summer, but he's already being recruited by teams for both sports. "Right now, I'd say my favorite teams are Miami, Auburn, Florida, UNC, and Georgia Southern. I'm looking at Georgia and Georgia Tech a little bit, but I think I want to go away to school a little farther than that. I'd like to play both football and baseball in college, and all of those schools have good programs in each sport."

Jonesboro went 7-3 last season and just missed the playoffs. If Addison has any say, they won't miss them again. "We're returning a lot of juniors from this team. We should be pretty good. I'll start both ways again this year. I used to return kickoffs and punts my freshman and sophomore year, but
