Brimfield Adjusts to Expectations

While he has adjusted to the new expectations created by his verbal commitment to North Carolina, William Brimfield still believes his best performances are ahead of him.

"My season is going pretty good as of now," said Brimfield. "I got off to a kind of shaky start because I know a lot of people out there watching me now. After the second game, I started doing good and settled down.

"I'm doing pretty good, but I can say I haven't played my best game yet. I know it will come out somewhere."

Brimfield started the season at tight end and defensive end for Neeses (S.C.) Hunter-Kinard-Tyler, but has been shuffled around a bit seeing significant time at offensive tackle and defensive tackle, also.

"It's a good feeling to know that I know what to do at all four positions," said Brimfield. "Really, a good player should know many positions on the field."

On the season, Brimfield has accumulated 42 tackles.

Additionally, Brimfield and his monstrous 6-foot-5, 290-pound frame lines up at place kicker, where he has converted 9-of-12 extra points.

"I do a little bit of everything," said Brimfield. "It's a 1A school, most of our team is going both ways so we have to do what we have to do. My coach feels I'm the best at [kicking] so that why he put me there."

For North Carolina, however, Brimfield is being recruited for the interior of the defensive line.

Although he hasn't made it up to Chapel Hill for a game, Brimfield has watched all four of North Carolina's games on television.

"I've talked about the season with [UNC coaches]," said Brimfield. "They haven't gotten off to a good start and that happens sometimes. They'll get it together."

Brimfield does, however, plan to take his North Carolina official visit during the season so to check out the game time atmosphere of Kenan Stadium.

Firm in his verbal commitment, Brimfield said he won't take official visits to any other schools, despite the recent interest from an in-state school.

"USC, the coach came down and watched my game," said Brimfield. "I played a pretty good game, but we lost. He texted me after the game and said I played a good game and that they were going to offer me."

After receiving an offer from South Carolina, rumors begun to circulate that Brimfield unofficially visited Columbia for the Wofford game. Brimfield denied those rumors.

Hunter-Kinard-Tyler has a 3-2 record and will host Wagener (S.C.) Wagener-Salley in their conference opener.
