Sutton Focused On A State Title

Warsaw (NC) James Kenan tailback Marcelias Sutton is solid for NC State and focused on a state title.

If you ask Marcelias Sutton whether he has thought about reopening his recruitment at any point this year he laughs it off.

"I'm Pack 14. I ain't going nowhere," Sutton said.

The #Pack14 hash tag on the popular social networking site Twitter has come to symbolize the program's future during a difficult present. This season has been difficult for the Wolfpack but Sutton and the program's other commitments have held firm in their belief that they will be the group that turns things around for Dave Doeren.

Sutton is excited about his future in Raleigh and his thoughts will soon turn to a future in college.

But first he's got some business to take care of. James Kenan's football team is undefeated and heading into a tough matchup against rival Wallace-Rose Hill in their quest for a championship and a perfect season.

That lofty goal now seems achievable.

"I think we're doing real good overall and everywhere on the field. I feel pretty good about going all the way this year," he said.

"I've been lining up everywhere. On the defensive side of the ball and I've been playing quarterback, running back, fullback and been doing everything on special teams. I'm just trying to contribute to the team. I don't know what my defensive stats are but I'm doing good there too."

Sutton recently topped the 1,000-yard mark on the ground and that bodes well for his future in Raleigh. He said that he could play running back or inside receiver.

"I know early they're going to want me playing special teams," he said.

Sutton is rated a three-star prospect and the No. 91 running back in the nation by Scout.com.
