Parkview Baptist in Baton Rouge is known for its prowess in football and baseball. Hezekiah Randolph, a junior running back/outfielder, could play either sport - or possibly both - in college.

"I'm about all my team. I don't know my stats. It's not a big issue with me," said Hezekiah Randolph (5-11, 210, Jr.). "I think of myself as a modern-day back like Trent Richardson. I can run around or through people.

"I bounced around at different positions this year. I played fullback in the first three games and then the coaches figured I'd be best at the wing."

Parkview, which won the Class 3A state title in 2010, reached the semis this year. The Eagles are known for their success with the ground game.

"The triple option comes straight at you and you have to respect it," said Randolph, who explained that he's a more coveted prospect on the diamond.

"I'm better at baseball from a top collegiate point of view," he said. "When I was 11, 12 and 13 years old, I was ranked in the Top 50 players in the nation. When I was 12, I was on the No. 1 travel team in the nation (Terror Baseball).

"Florida is my dream school, but when it comes down to what really is going to happen, the school that offers everything is Georgia Tech. They have the academics and a Christian foundation. Georgia Tech has the number three engineering program in the nation in the field I want to study (civil)."

Randolph is among the highest-ranked baseball prospects in the state. He squats 545 pounds and bench presses 295.

Which other schools pique his interest?

"LSU, no doubt," he began. "That's the home school. Maryland has a nice program with upside. I have a lot of interest in Pitt and also Ole Miss."

Randolph and the Eagles advanced to the state finals in baseball last season.
