Ivy Drawing In State Interest

Posted Feb 27, 2011

Antwon Ivy believes he has what it take to make a difference on the interior on the college level. The 6-0, 265 pounder makes plays at Okolona on both sides of the ball and is always looking for a way to get better. As a standout power lifter, Ivy has learned how to better his opponents using his smarts and his strength.

"I am getting letters from Mississippi State, Ole Miss and a couple of other schools," said Antwon. "I was supposed to go to Mississippi State's junior day, but I had a power lifting meet that day.

"I got first place in the 275 class at that meet."

With Antwon's, size and strength his options position wise may prove to be limited, but he is ready to show what he can do no matter where he lines up before the snap.

"I am probably going to play nose guard or center in college," said Ivy. "I like playing inside. I feel like I can use my strength there to make plays."

Okolona is moving up this season after being affected by the new classification numbers in Mississippi.

Ivy reports that he and his teammates are excited about making the jump up in competition.

"We are moving back up to 2A," said Antwon. "We are really looking forward to it. I feel like we can go far this year.

"We had a chance to go far last year, but things didn't work out for us. This year, I feel like is going to be even better."

Heading into the spring, Ivy is working on getting bigger, faster and stronger for his final high school campaign. He hopes to parlay his play on the prep level into a college future.

"I want to be able to play in college, so I can get my education," said Antwon. "I want a chance to make something of myself and have a chance at a better life."
