The Orange Nation of Waynesboro felt the sting of disappoinment last year when they fell a game short of making the playoffs due to losing a tie breaker. Lampley hopes to settle it all on the field this year.

"I don't have any goals this year except for my team to get back in the playoffs," said Tracey. "If you talk to everybody, they'll probably all tell you the same thing. I think we all have the same goal."

The summer has brought the chance for the team to bond together and sharpen their skills at 7-on-7 tournaments around the area.

"We just got done playing 7-on-7 a little while ago," said Lampley. "We played Laurel, Northeast Jones and Heidelberg. We won every game. I think I had about 20 catches and a couple of picks. It was fun."

Over the course of the next few weeks, Tracey will take in a pair of summer camps in an attempt to gain some clarity on his college options.

"I am going to Southern Miss' camp on the 18th and on the 12th I am going to Auburn for their camp," said Tracey. "Auburn wants me to come meet all of the coaches. They want me to come talk with them. I think they might offer me."

The talented scat back currently holds offers from Mississippi State, Southern Miss and UAB. He stays in regular contact with each school.

"I try to call and talk with all of them once a a week," said Lampley. "I enjoy talking with all of the coaches. I am still trying to give everyone a fair chance. I can really tell that Mississippi State and Southern Miss want me real bad. They both want me to come in and play early. Both of them say I could make an impact as a freshman."

Tracey denies an overall leader. At this point his focus is on the 2008 season and he does not plan to make a decision until after the season concludes. Recommended Stories
