I didn't realize how close we were then, but we could have made it." The Indians are about to get cranked up with spring practice which will culminate with a scrimmage against one of the top teams in Mississippi's 5A North classification. "I am ready," said Ja'Mez. "I am really looking forward to playing Tupelo in our spring game. They have some players that are being scouted and we have some players that are being scouted. It's going to be a good game."

"Alabama has been sending me the most things," said Ja'Mez. "They want to see my grades and things like that. Southern Miss and Ole Miss have been writing me some and I got some things from Mississippi State."
