Bobby Felder (DB, McComb, MS) - Bobby made a name for himself last season when he intercepted 5 passes, and he followed that up with an impressive performance at the combine that was held in New Orleans as he was named to the All-Combine team.

Now he is gearing up for an even bigger senior campaign.

"Practices have been going good," added Bobby Felder. "We are looking better. We are going to have a lot better defense than most people realize. We have 10 starters back on defense, so coach is focused mostly on offense."

Bobby is actually going to make the move from cornerback to safety this season.

"They have been working on my footwork and coverage skills. They are moving me to safety because we have two pretty good cornerbacks but they are young. They are going to push me over to the middle so I can protect the deep passes, but I feel pretty good about our young CB's. I played safety my sophomore year. I feel better at safety because I am free and can do what ever I want to back there."

McComb's offense will receive a boost with Brandon's services.

"I am going to rotate in and out at tailback. Last year I had a few TD's at tailback, but I was mostly at corner. I am going to start both ways this year."

Felder had a relatively quiet summer.

"I went to Houston's and USM's camps. I did not get any offers yet, but I am still hearing from USM, Ole Miss, MSU, LSU, Auburn, and N' Western LA."

Who is showing Felder the most love?

"USM, Ole Miss, and MSU."

Which colleges does Bobby call on his own?

"I call USM and MSU. USM is telling me that they saw some film on me and that I look pretty good at cornerback. Coach Hopson is telling me that they are going to watch me some more at the start of the year, and if they like me enough, they are going to offer me. MSU is just telling me to come to the LSU game and come talk to them. They said I am real high up on their CB chart. They like me a lot. They think I will be a big help to their team."
