The three year starter for Tupelo
does many things well on the field.
"I feel I have an equal balance
between strength and speed. I run a 5.2 forty so I can get to where I need to
be before the defense. I can get there faster than a defensive person most of
the time," commented Jason Fowler.
What will Fowler have to work on
for the next level?
"Probably my bench. I bench 275 right now. I need
to get that up another 100 pounds before I report to college. I am not as strong
as I need to be right now. That is going to be my number one goal this year, to

"I think the one I
