"I was playing QB last year until the next to last regular season game," stated the rising junior, Vincent Sanders. "They moved me to WR and I was the go to guy when Pat (Patterson) got hurt. I had over a 1, 000 yards passing and 10 TD's at QB and over 500 yards at WR."
In the 4A State Championship game, Vincent had 6 catches for over a
100 yards. That is when the rest of the state took notice.
"Vincent really took off in the playoffs," stated Noxubee County assistant, Charles Lee. "I think that really showed him that he belonged out there. He was only a sophomore, so you have to build that confidence. Vincent can really go up and get the ball and he is a pure athlete."
Sander's athleticism was displayed in front of the Ole Miss coaches today, and it looks like they took notice.
"Coach Kent Austin offered me today. He said I could play a lot at Ole Miss. He liked the way I caught the ball."
Noxubee County beat Kirby (TN) in the championship game of the 7 on 7 tournament.
"The camp was just a great experience for me. I saw a lot of new defenses today. I learned how to adjust to the different defenses."
And what was Sanders reaction to the Ole Miss offer?
"I was shocked. I told him that he made my day. There is nothing like getting your first scholarship offer. It brought a big ole smile to my face."
The offer looks to have made an impact with the rising junior.
"Ole Miss is definitely my top school. I just like their coaching staff and how many good players they have coming back on their team."
The Rebels have also offered a pair of his teammats in DE Deontae Skinner and WR Pat Patterson.
Any chances the three land at the same school?
"Yea, we have been talking about how much fun it would be to all play for the same school, but they are a year ahead of me, so I will just have to wait and see what they do first. Everyone has to do what is best for them."
Vincent stated that UAB is showing him the most interest outside of Ole Miss and plans to attend the Alabama and UAB passing camps next.
