Derek Sherrod came on the scene as an 8th grader. The first time I saw him was at his older brother's signing day party, MSU football player Dezmond Sherrrod. Even back then, Derek was taller than his brother. Now, he's a 6-6, 298-pound senior-to-be at Caledonia (MS) High School who will very likely be a highly recruited youngster. Check out his video by clicking the Watch Video link. In the second half of the video the player he goes head to head against is Independence High School's Quentin Saulsberry (No. 50 in white), one of the better class of 2007 defensive linemen in the state of Mississippi.
No. 54, Right Offensive Tackle, Derek Sherrod.
