2005 Target: Andy Barbee
Andy Barbee (6'4, 290, 5.2 40) was part of Coach Roy Kirby's first state championship. The Crest Chargers (Shelby, NC) defeated E. Randolph 40-0. "I was proud of our team, I was glad to see coach get his first title," Andy began with obvious pride.
Som far Barbee has drawn interest from UNC, NC State, Duke, S. Carolina, and Virginia. "Those are the teams right now that are my Top 5 ... granted this list isn't any set order." With Junior Days behind him Andy was able to attend all those that he had planed on. "I was able to attend NC State's, Duke's, UNC and South Carolina's."
Andy provided a brief summary of what makes each of those schools on his list worthy of his top five.
UNC: "I like the location, it's close to home and I know some people that are going to school there, that and I like the Football team."
NC State: "Same scenario as UNC"
Duke: "Nice College, with a awesome college environment"
South Carolina: "Good football team, I know people that go there, and I have family in the area. Plus its close to my house."
Virginia: "I haven't made it up there for a visit; they are the ones I don't know a lot about."
As far as his Camp schedule is concerned, Andy has those lined up and read to go.
"I participated in the Shrine bowl combine this last weekend and I know for sure I'll go to UNC 3-day camp along with a series of 1 day camps at Clemson and South Carolina."
"I have to work on getting faster, improve my pass blocking skills, be a more effective run blocker." Stated Barbee when asked what he needed to work on this coming season. "I know that when I get to next level, that I will have to prove my self, but that ok, I like those kinds of challenges."
Barbee plans on carefully choosing the school that fits hits academic needs.
"I would like to possiby major in agriculture, or teaching, but I really haven't thought that much about." Whatever Andy chooses to study he has a 4.25 to 4.3 GPA backing up those plans.
"I love the intensity of the game, hitting people without any trouble to follow. It's a good way to take out any aggression," replied Andy when asked to sum up his love of the game.
