Rickey, why don't you tell the readers of Gene's Page a little about yourself - like your height, weight, and how you are doing this season.
"I play quarterback and by height is 6-0 and I weigh 190. Our season is going pretty good right now. We are 3-0 and it's the been a while since we've gone 3-0. Right now we're getting ready for Clinton." (SP defeated Clinton 18-0.-Gene)

Do you know your stats on the year so far?
"I know I have 4 touchdowns in 3 games."

I see. What position are you being recruited to play in college?
"Cornerback."

So you play both ways?
"Yes sir. I've been mainly playing quarterback this year but I can play cornerback when they need me."

There is a player named Wright on the MSU team. Are you any kin to him?
"Yes sir, Demetric is my first cousin."

Have you talked to Demetric lately?
"Yes sir. I spent the night with him a few weeks ago and visited with him."

OK, so you are already familiar with Mississippi State?
"I just about know the whole campus."

I see. Do you think Demetric is going to have anything to do with where you go to school?
"Yes sir."

Do you have a favorite school so far?
"Yes sir. Mississippi State."

I really appreciate your time. Good luck the rest of the season.
"Yes sir. Thanks."
