  • Pratt is a big safety who prides himself on playing every play. He hopes that's what fans see when he's on the field.

    "I want fans to see a player who works hard and gives it all he has on the field," he said.

    Athletically, he feels he has advantage on receivers who aren't as big and strong as him.

    "I'm a quick guy who is tall and has a lot of range," said Pratt. "I feel like I'm good at jamming people at the line and I'm a good cover guy."

    Due to an injury this past season, Pratt only played in one game.

    "I fractured my ankle this past season," said Pratt. "I played one game, the Hoover game, and after that I just couldn't do it."

    Due to that injury, very few college coaches got to see him play. But he's still received a few letters from colleges.

    "Georgia and Grambling State have sent me a letter," said Pratt.

    In the past, a few coaches did get to see him in camp and seven-on-sevens and liked what they saw.

    "The coaches tell me that I have good size, speed and good hands," said Pratt. "They told me that they like me as a big cover safety."

    Now that his ankle has just about healed he has plans on attending several camps this summer.

    "This coming summer I plan on going to FSU, Bama and Mississippi State," said Pratt. "I want to try and fly out to Texas and camp there."
