Unlike many of these prospects, Pickering dual-threat Sonny Roseborough has no preference concerning his projected position at the next level.
"I'll play wherever they want. It doesn't matter to me," answered the 5-10, 170-pound Roseborough.
This selfless attitude coupled with dashing 4.5 speed has helped the Leesville native to engineer phenomenal numbers in consecutive seasons. Roseborough sliced and diced his way to 1,972 rushing yards and 22 scores in his junior year.
For good measure, he also added eight interceptions and 20 tackles on his way to being named All-State on both offense and defense. All this came after a sophomore campaign which produced 1,764 yards and 19 more trips to the end zone.
Of course none of this comes as any surprise to those near him, including assistant coach Lane Cook.
"He's a hard, slashing runner with good speed and good vision," added Cook. "The kid is very coachable and an extremely hard worker."
When asked about the upcoming season, Roseborough responded, "I'm looking forward to it. We lost a lot of linemen from last year's team, so it's time to get to work and get ready for spring practice."
While Cook and Roseborough are looking forward to the 2006 season the college ranks have already begun to look at the versatile athlete.
"I haven't gotten any offers right now, but I've been getting letters from a bunch of places," said Roseborough. "I've got a few letters here from Ole Miss, Duke and LSU, and I'm definitely going to camp at LSU."
Roseborough also hinted that staying close to home wasn't necessarily a top priority. He finished by explaining, "I'm going to wait until after the season and sit down with my family before making any decisions."
