"David has really gotten himself prepared for his senior year," commented Richwood's new head coach, Warren Trimble. "David is now up to 6' 6", 250 and it is nothing but muscle. He is a good football player and will really help us on the edge at defensive end, and he has good hands and is a very good blocker at tight end.
has also been pleased with his preseason camp.
"It went pretty good.
It has been pretty hot though. I am trying to get use to the new conditioning
coach. He has us going through the sand with tires on our back. We are just doing
a lot of things to get ourselves acclimated to this heat. We feel like we are
ready," commented David Rue

got me more involved in the offense this year. I had 4 catches for 68 yards and
a TD. I also had 2 sacks at DE."
Rue has seen improvement in his game.
am just a lot stronger, faster, and bigger now. That is why I am so anxious to
run the 40 again, but our coach want let us do it because we have been busy going
over the plays. We maxed out the other day. I benched 280, but I did not squat."
Chad Jones, and fellow Ole Miss commit Rishaw Johnson, use to play at St. Augustine
together before splitting due to Hurricane Katrina.
"It was tough
on all of us. We went everywhere together, but you know, everybody had to get
a roof over their head. We had to all go our separate ways. But all of us are
like best friends. I have been talking to Chad (Jones) lately, but he has been
busy with football and baseball. Rishaw has been traveling a little bit. He was
trying to get me to go to O. Perry Walker with him, but I told him I needed to
stay with my mother, and he said if I did not go, he was not going to go. I wanted
to get back to New Orleans, but nobody was going back."
Ole Miss and
Clemson offered David early in the recruiting process, but Rue committed to Ole
"I am still committed to Ole Miss. It was just the right environment
for me. I went up there for Jr Day, and then when I went back this summer, and
it just made up my mind for sure that Ole Miss was the right school for me. They
have a lot of Louisiana people on their staff and a lot of players from here,
so they are easy to talk to. Me and Rishaw are probably going to room together
there next year."
Any chance Chad Jones might join them?
really think he is going to play college baseball and football instead of going
pro. But you know, if they offered him crazy money he would take it. He told me
he was leaning towards LSU, but he said Ole Miss and Miami were still in it. I
still think he will probably end up at LSU."
