Tall DB will be a hot commodity in '04

At 6-3, Greg Sudderth will be a very hot commodity as a defensive back in the class of 2004.

Parkview lost a lot of talent from its State Championship team, but no one needs to weep for the three time defending state champions as they will still be returning several players that will play Division 1 football in the near future. We have already profiled Brad Lester, and Greg Sudderth is another one of the skill players that made added great speed to a team thought of mainly as just big and strong.

Sudderth is a huge cover corner at 6-3 and 186 pounds. He has 180 career tackles and 9 interceptions, and he will get his chance to shine on offense this year as well. At 6-3 and 4.5 speed, Sudderth will be a highly sought after defensive back prospect that can also play wide receiver.

"I started at corner last year," said Sudderth. "I'll get a chance to play more receiver this year too. I plan on going to camps at Texas, LSU, Vanderbilt, and Florida State this summer. I think my favorite schools right now are probably Texas, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, Virginia, and Florida State."

In addition to having won 3 straight state titles in football, Sudderth is a member of the Parkview Baseball team that will be gunning for its third straight state title this spring.

"We have our work cut out for us in baseball this year. We're going to a tournament in Louisiana this month, and we'll get a pretty good idea of how we are going to be. I'd like to play both sports in college, but football is my main sport."

The two sport star is also a standout in the classroom, and he will have no trouble qualifying.
