"To tell you about Chris, I really think that he is going to be in the NFL someday," said Tupelo High School head football coach Eric Collins, who coached against NFL quarterbacks Eli and Peyton Manning when they were high school quarterbacks.
Coach Collins isn't the only one impressed with Chris. This past summer, he drew rave reviews from numerous coaches at college camps such as Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Alabama and LSU.
Keep an eye on this extremely talented youngster the next three years. If he continues to work hard and improve, there is no doubt that he will be one of the elite quarterbacks of the class of 2009.
