"They also have a good staff and they make sure their players get their
education first. I went down to see them play LSU Thursday and they played good.
I got to go in their locker room after the game and I talked to their coaches
for a while."
James is also going to look at the position he is going to play on the next
"My education is going to come first, but on the sports side of things,
I would like to play defense. I am a defensive player who just happens to be
a good receiver but offense is just something I do to help the team out. I feel
much more comfortable at defensive back."
The Rebels are recruiting Northern for receiver and the Dogs are recruiting
him for safety. Last season he collected 24 tackles and 3 int's (two went for
TD's). This season he has caught 20 passes for 208 yards and 6 TD's and has
chipped in 20 tackles through five games.
"I am tackling much better this year and catching the ball better. I am
playing smarter on the field. I know how to get the needed yardage for a first
down and what it takes to get those yards. On defense I am breaking the quarterback
down a lot better. I am just playing much faster this year because my knowledge
for the game has increased."
Rosa Fort is 3-2 and faces New Albany on Friday.
