Lester talks recruiting and the big showdown

<b>Brad Lester</b> committed early to Auburn and was in attendance at the GT/AU game. He talks a bit about his commitment to the Tigers as well as this week's huge showdown with Brookwood.

Brad Lester is one of the Top 20 players in the state of Georgia this year, and he made an early commitment to Auburn. He has family ties to Georgia Tech, and he was in Atlanta this weekend for the Jackets win over Auburn. Has he seen anything in Auburn's first two games that is making him have second doubts?

"Nah... I haven't had a change of heart," said Lester. "That's where I'm going to go. I think they'll bounce back and get it turned around this weekend. They need to get a passing game to take pressure off of the running game a little bit."

Lester knows a thing or two about what he's talking about; he is on a Parkview team that has won 47 straight games. This weekend is the big showdown with Cross-Town Rival Brookwood. The Parkview/Brookwood game has become such a big contest that CSS is broadcasting the game regionally to nine states, and 680 The Fan will simulcast the game in the Metro Atlanta Area.

"Man, I can't wait. We were off last week, and we went to watch them play. Everyone is pretty excited."

This game could be a pre-cursor of things to come again this year. Last year, Parkview beat Brookwood in the regular season, then had to beat them in the State Championship game to claim their 3rd straight State Title.

Brookwood looks stronger this year, and Parkview is not as good as last year. Has the gap closed enough that Brookwood can knock off Parkview? It sure will be interesting to find out, but don't take too much from this game, they're very likely to see eachother again when there is more on the line than playoff seeding and bragging rights.
