"I'm still talking with Southern Miss a good bit," said Cole Brodie. "I just talked to them on the phone the other night. It's really slowed down with it being mid-season. I guess all the colleges are busy with their schedule, but I'm probably talking to about four colleges right now."
Last week, Brodie traveled to Lynchburg, Virginia to visit Liberty
"I really liked Liberty," said Brodie. "They made me feel very
special. I really liked the atmosphere up there. Two of my teammates from last
year, Wesley Cheek and Spencer Landis are playing for them. I also visited
Southern Miss after the second week. I really liked it down there as well."
After missing several games with an ankle injury, Brodie has still rushed for
635 yards and seven touchdowns on the season.
"The season is going really great," said Brodie. "I struggled
with a high ankle sprain in about the fourth game of the season. I've been back
for the last two games. The first game I came back, I had to come out in the
second half because it was still bothering me. Last Friday was my first full
game back and I had a really big night."
"I played at about 90 percent against Winder-Barrow," he said.
"We had to put double tape on it and a brace. It felt good through the
whole game. I felt good moving around on it. This week we have a bye week, so
I'm sure it will be back to 100 percent for the Loganville game. It will be good
to be back."
After leading the Falcons to the semifinals of the Class 5A state playoffs in
2005, Brodie is looking for his team to do it again in 2006.
"I feel like we can," he said. "Every week, we have to show up
and everybody has to play the best game they've ever played. If we just show up
with our helmets on, we'll just be an average team. We have to have a good week
of practice and we can't take any days off. We have to keep getting better every
day if we expect to compete at that level. I think we do have the ability to get
back to where we were last year."
Brodie consistently runs the 40-yard dash in the 4.5 second range. He is
currently looking at three schools.
"I like Southern Miss, Liberty, and William & Mary."
