D-End Has Two Leaders

Jamil Paris didn't get to play much football last season. An injury and a couple powerful Hurricanes were the two major reasons why his junior season was uneventful for the most part.

"I worked really hard this offseason to get to this point," Paris said. "I'm having a lot of fun out there right now. I was named Defensive Player of the Game for the first couple games."

Jamil Paris, 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds, has continued getting interest from a lot of top notch programs.

"I didn't have any offers going into the season so a lot of the college coaches wanted to see video tape of my first few games," he said. "I think I did pretty good. A lot of them are keeping in touch, talking about maybe offering."

Paris, a full academic qualifier at Sebastian River, Fla., has two in-state programs at the top of his list.

"Florida's at the top," he said. "They're coming after me and I really got to like them a lot more after checking them out this summer. They're having a good season and I like the coaches. Miami's up there too. They just need to see more tape before they offer I guess."

Neither program has offered but both continue to keep in touch on a weekly basis. They're not the only ones on his list.

"Ohio State, Kentucky, Clemson, and Auburn, those are some of the other ones for now," he said. "I'm just trying to open some eyes this season and show people what I'm capable of."
