Harrison DE works hard to get ahead

<b>James Case</b> of Harrison High School in Kennesaw, GA has worked hard to become one of the top student athletes in the state. He has two offers, and could add more.

James Case is a big defensive prospect from Harrison High School in Kennesaw, GA. His size makes him attractive to many college coaches, but his heart and determination is the underlying factor that sets him apart from his peers. 

Case was diagnosed with dyslexia at an early age, and has battled the taunts and jeers that accompany it, his entire life. Through lots of hard work, Case has turned his disorder into a positive aspect of his life, and is succeeding in school.

Case ranks as one of the top students in his class, and will have no trouble qualifying due to an ACT score well over 20 already. While he has accomplished more than most people his age already, Case still has a dream to play college football, and he spoke to TheInsiders.com about his favorite schools.

"I like Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky, Georgia, Auburn, and Miami-Ohio the best," said Case. "Duke and Miami are my 2 offers to this point."

James recently visited Chapel Hill, and this is what he had to say about the Tar Heels.

"It was unbelievable. The facilities were great, and I enjoyed it. If Carolina, Kentucky, Georgia, or Auburn offered me, it would be tough to turn down."

While Case is still waiting on a few offers, the Duke Blue Devils have really started to make an impression on him, and a decision could possibly be coming very soon.

"I tell you what. I've really been thinking about Duke more and more. It's a great institution, and the life after football would be really great. I'm visiting there in a few weeks, and I might commit on the spot."

Harrison High School lost a lot of talent from a year ago, but Case will anchor the middle of their defense once again. He should have a big senior season, and we look forward to keeping you up to date on his progress in 2003.
