Sears Makes His Pitch

Covington, Louisiana standout quarterback Kenny Sears attended the Mississippi State football camp session on Tuesday. With the Bulldogs in the market for a quarterback, Sears came to work out for the Mississippi State staff to see if he could make a move up the Bulldog board.


"Coach (Greg) Knox talked to me dad and he told him that they wanted to give me a look," Sears said. "I was just excited to come up here and show the coaches what I can do."

Sears, who made the five hour drive from home with his grandfather, feels like he had a pretty good day during the camp drills.

"Every camp that I do to, I try to use the balls that they use at that school," Sears said. "Everybody uses different brands, but I used the brand that Mississippi State uses. I just went with the transition and I feel like I performed good."

Today's camp session for one day campers was filled with a lot of reps for the players in attendance. With less than two dozen players on campus for coaches to evaluate, Sears believes he got enough face time in for the staff to know what is capable of.

"You have to build up that arm stamina in the summer," Sears said with a grin. "You're going to be throwing a lot whether it's camps, workouts or whatever. I was glad that we got a lot of reps, so that we could show the coaches what we can do."

Several schools are showing some level of interest in the south Louisiana quarterback with one in state school extending a scholarship offer.

"I am hearing from Northwestern State, ULL, McNeese State, ULM, Arkansas State and Tulane," Sears said. "Northwestern State has offered me."
