Target 2005: Dominique Lindsay

Charlotte (N.C.) Independence running back Dominique Lindsay is very sure of himself and his team.

"I think we will win," stated the 5-10, 190-pounder in regards to his Patriots chances of capturing the North Carolina 4A State Championship. "I don't think anybody can beat us."

After that statement, Lindsay might come across as arrogant, however when you consider the fact that Independence has won four straight Championships, and is in the midst of a 61-game winning streak, you realize it's just confidence. Being the starting running back on a team of this stature, the amount of college interest that Lindsay is receiving is unsurprising.

"I'm hearing from mostly ACC and SEC schools," remarked Lindsay. "But Michigan, UNC, N.C. State, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia are recruiting me the hardest."

Lindsay currently doesn't own any offers, but with the Heels' need of signing possibly two running backs for the 2005 recruiting class, this pinball of a ‘back might be an option down the road.

"I like the Tar Heels -- that was my favorite team growing up as a kid," said Lindsay, who has visited Chapel Hill in the past. He has been to Junior Days at N.C. State and Tennessee.

Lindsay finished his junior campaign with 1,712 yards on 171 carries (10.1 yards per rush) and 29 touchdowns.
