Newnan's Russell Powell Holds Offers

Talented athlete is a two-sport star in both basketball and football.

In terms of recruiting, Russell Powell is quite unique.

The Newnan High star excels at both basketball and football at the prep level and the 5-9 athlete has drawn interest from colleges for both sports.

"I have an Air Force offer for football," Powell said. "Toldeo and Harvard have offered in basketball."

Powell admits that he doesn't know what sport he wants to play at the next level. He also isn't sure if he will be able to play both when he gets to college.

"I am not sure about both," Powell said. "It might be hard to do both."

Powell plays quarterback and point guard.
