Big Play WR Working for Options
Posted Oct 15, 2010

Chris Briggs knows how to find the endzone. With a four touchdown game to his credit, the talented wide out has been a focal point for opposing defenses. Briggs and the Franklinton High Demons are 5-1 on the season and no team within Louisiana's talented border has been able to stay close. While some are talking title, Briggs is talking about the next opponent.

"I feel like I am having a magnificent year so far," said Briggs. "I have seven touchdowns and 310 yards.

"As the go to guy I have to have a good year and I am steady progressing as the weeks go on. I am having a lot less drops this year."

With five straight blow out wins where FHS scored 55 points or better each week, some are ready to put them in the Superdome as a state title game participant.

While fans and media are welcome to project, Chris is not one to get ahead of himself.

"As of right now we are not focusing on taking it all the way," said Briggs. "We are taking it game by game.

"It's only week seven, so our next big game is the next game on our schedule."

Chris is a long, tall receiver with some good ball skills. A handful of schools have shown interest and a few of them have offered scholarships.

"I have offers from Arkansas State, Weber State, Miami of Ohio and Tulane," said Briggs. "It's going a little slow right now, but you can't expect too much because everybody is in their season.

"I am just going out and trying to progress each week.

"Mississippi State and a couple of other schools in the SEC are showing me some interest. LSU was looking at me, but that was a while back. Auburn and Arkansas are looking at me too."

When decision time comes, Chris has a good idea about what he wants in a college home.

"I just want to go somewhere I can contribute," said Briggs. "I would really like to go play in the SEC, but the main thing is to find a team where I can contribute."
