"Our district, because of the Hurricane (Katrina), did not pick a team. I thought that was horrible. That penalized Harvey (Haynes), as he was the most dominate player in our district. I have been coaching for 39 years, and I would rate him as good as any kid I have coached. And I have coached some good ones," commented East Jefferson's head coach, Henry Rando.

What will Haynes

"He needs to put on some weight.
Right now, he is 233. Harvey lost a few pounds because of track. I need for him
to come in August at 245. He knows that. Harvey needs to get a little heavier."
colleges came in this Spring to evaluate Harvey?
"Every school from
Louisiana came in. Ole Miss, Mississippi State, USM, Auburn, Alabama, Georgia Tech, Central Florida, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Vandy, and Clemson also came in.
Those are just the ones off of the top of my head. Nebraska was extremely impressed
with him. Quite a few people came in."
Has this standout defensive
end received any early scholarship offers?
"So far, Ole Miss and Auburn
have offered. Nebraska will be sending him something pretty soon."
colleges are the main players for Harvey's services?
"Of course, LSU.
And Ole Miss, Miami, Notre Dame, and Oklahoma. I would say that would be his Top
