Coleman's numbers may pay dividends

This is the time of the year college coaches spend a lot of time on the road traveling to see prospects in action at their high school practices. <br><br> Baldwin-West St. Mary athlete Harry Coleman (6-2, 205, 4.5) has been putting up some good numbers early in his senior season and his actions have not gone unnoticed.

Through four games, the receiver/linebacker has hauled in five touchdown receptions on offense.


Defensively, he has been as equally impressive with six forced fumbles and more than 40 tackles.


"I know LSU is pretty high on him," said West St. Mary coach Andre Lockley. "He is getting inquiries from them along with Southern Miss, Mississippi State, Tulane and a bunch of others. He has been to one LSU game when they played Western Illinois and he is going to see a game at Southern Miss and Tulane. He does not have any offers on the table but all of those schools are definitely interested in him."


Coleman could get a look at either offense or defense at the next level but Lockley feels like he could be a special safety in college.


"Mississippi State came down here looking for a big wide receiver but everybody else is looking at him for safety," Lockley said. "I'm not a Division-I coach but I think he would make a great safety. He doesn't just hit you. He runs through you. I think he is a combination of a Ronnie Lott and a Roy Williams type. He is just a big physical player."
