Dandy Dozen Selection Names Two Early Leaders
The last player from George County who received this much publicity was Eric Moulds, who is a current wide-out for the Buffalo Bills.
The following information was revealed during our interview with Co-Eric Riley:
What is your current height, weight, and forty time? "I am a little over 6' 2", and I am up to 185. I run a 4.4 forty."
Which position are you currently playing? "I moved to receiver this year. I played QB last year."
What are your strengths on the field? "I do not know. My speed and my ability to make you miss."
What are you working on to take your game to the next level? "I am trying to get stronger and all of that."
What do you currently max out at? "I do not know. We have never maxed out or anything."
Which camps did you attend this past summer? "I did not go to any."
How long have you been starting for George County? "Since my 10th grade year. I was the starting CB then."
Which positions have you played during this time frame? "I just played CB in 10th grade. Last year, I played QB and CB. This year, I am playing WR and CB."
What were your stats from your junior season? "I passed for 1,237 yards, and I had 22 TD's."
Any awards? "I was named Class 4A MVP, and I also made All-District. This summer, I was named Dandy Dozen (by the Clarion Ledger')."
What is George County's record this year? "We are 2 - 1. We lost to Gulfport Friday."
How has the transition from QB to WR gone for you? "It is good. Our QB got hurt, so we had to bring in a 10th grader. He throws the rock pretty good though. I have 5 TD's on offense and 1 TD on an interception return at cornerback. I ran it back for a 96 yard TD."
Give us a run down on how you have fared in each game this season? "The first game, I had 5 catches for 155 yards and 2 TD's. The second game, that was kind of one of my bad games. I had 6 catches for 129 yards and 1 TD. Last week, I played CB a lot. I scored three times but one of them was called back. I had 6 receptions for 195 yards and 2 TD's. I also had a pick for a TD. I think our next game against Forest will be my best game yet."
Which position do you feel the most comfortable at? "I like playing CB better. I like to play defense. Quarterback, it was OK, but I do not like it as much as CB. Wide receiver, I did that to just help the team out. My brother, he in the 9th grade. I think we would be better off if I were throwing it to him."
Which schools are currently recruiting you the hardest? "Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and Southern Mississippi."
Any offers? "Not yet."
Any phone calls this month? "Coach Luke (Ole Miss) had been keeping in touch, but that is about it."
Which schools are you the most interested in? "I like Ole Miss and Mississippi State the best."
What do you like about Ole Miss? "I like their coach and football team."
What are MSU's positives? "About the same things. I like their new coach and football team, and I know some people up there."
Have you attended any college games this fall? "No, but I might go up to Southern Mississippi on Thursday. And I plan to go watch Mississippi State and Ole Miss play. Right now, I am looking at all of the Mississippi teams."
What are you looking for, when you are trying to find the right school for you? "I am looking for a school with a good coach and good football team."
Is staying instate important to you? "Yes sir, I kind of like Mississippi football. I want to help my state win a championship."
What is your current GPA and ACT score? "I really do not know what my GPA is, and I think I am taking the ACT test in like a month or so."
