Armwood's FS Hadley, out to set records

Armwood safety Angelo Hadley is already working toward his goals for his senior season. The 6', 190 pound free safety talks about his off-season plans, who's offered early and what he learned from some of his teammates that graduated in '08.

Goal-setting is a strategy that all successful athletes participate in and that's just what Angelo Hadely of Armwood has done. He has set the bar high and will have to put in a lot of time in the weight room and on the field before he can accomplish his goals.

"Overall I want to get faster and stronger" Says Hadely who ran a 4.47 last week at his school, in his pre-spring timing.

"My goals for next year are to stay on task in all my classes. On the field I want to set the school record for interceptions and tackles. Last season I tied the single-game record with 22 tackles in a game, this year I want to break that."

Last season the 6-foot, 190 pound free safety racked up 94 tackles, 3 INT's and one IN T he retuned for a touchdown. Already Hadley is getting recognized by college coaches. He has two offers and is receiving interest from a third school.

"South Florida and North Carolina have already offered. Auburn is the next school that I think could offer. They've been showing a lot of interest."

Bulls coach Troy Douglas offered Hadley a week ago, while Butch Davis called two weeks ago and offered him verbally through his coach.

"I like USF, they are a great school and they showed they are coming up. I saw them play a few times last year and I'll be interested to see what they do this year."

Hadley already has a plan on how he's going to reach those goals.

"Matt (Patchan) and some of the guys from last year told me to hit the camps and combines during the spring and summer. I'm already planning on attending the Nike camp in Orlando at the end of this month."

Besides the Nike camp Hadley says he'll be attending a few other camps as well as college combines throughout the summer.
