Flowers Pleased with All-Star Nod

Mississippi has produced a bumper crop of offensive line prospects for the 2013 signing class. Simmons standout Kent Flowers was one of the first big men to emerge as an SEC level prospect for this signing class. Flowers, now a Mississippi State commitment, is still regarded as one of the elite blockers in the state. The three star standout was named to the Mississippi All-Star roster yesterday.

"This is just a great feeling," said Flowers. "I am so excited about all of this.

"I really don't even know what to say. It's a real honor to be able to play in that game and represent Mississippi."

Flowers will see plenty of familiar faces when he boards the bus to Montgomery, Alabama. Flowers was one of nine Mississippi State commitments to earn the honor of playing in the annual grudge match against Alabama.

"I am getting ready to text Deon (Mix) about all of this right now," said Flowers. "It is going to be great to be able to play with all of those guys.

"I know we are going to be talking to those other players about being Bulldogs."

The December 15th contest will come after the state championships have concluded. Many of the All-Star game participants will likely be in action in the weeks leading up to the contest.

Flowers hopes he is one of them.

"We're 4-4 right now," said Flowers. "We have O'Bannon this week and then we go over to Rosedale (West Bolivar).

"We have a chance to make it into the playoffs. We're a young team, so it's going to be tough for us, but I believe we can make it."

Flowers reports that his commitment to Mississippi State is still solid as a rock, but the delta lineman has not been able to see his future team in person this season.

"I haven't been able to get a ride over there," said Flowers of Starkville. "I have been watching on TV and they're doing great.

"They're undefeated and playing really good right now. I am real excited about getting up there next year."
