Magnolia DB getting ready for season opener

Magnolia DB getting ready for season opener

One of Mississippi's top cover corners gained a lot of confidence this summer.

"We went over to the Hoover 7 on 7 tournament this summer and won it," added a proud KeShun Cowan. "We played against a lot of good players, and I went up against some of the country's top receivers, and we came out on top. That just gives us the edge heading into the season."

Cowan attended one college camp this summer.

"We went to the Alabama camp, and then we headed over to the Hoover tournament. I was going to go to the Ole Miss camp, but we went straight to the Hoover tournament the same day."

KeShun was hoping for a scholarship offer from his showing at the Ole Miss camp but it looks like those plans will be delayed.

"They are still sending me stuff everyday, but I do not know what is going to happen now with the scholarship stuff. I guess I will just have to show everyone in the fall that I am deserving."

Who else stays in contact with the 2007 All-Region 1(5A) selection?

"MSU, USM, and LSU. MTSU is actually sending more stuff than anyone, but I really have not spoken to anyone on the phone all summer. I have not been calling anyone, just concentrating on my team."

Tonight, Olive Branch will face Shannon in a jamboree that will be held on Ole Miss' field.

"That is going to be exciting. I can't wait to play in that stadium again. We played there in a jamboree the year before last, and it was a blast."

After the jamboree, Olive Branch is playing nationally ranked Pahokee (FL) in front of a national audience.

"That game is might be the biggest game we have played in since I have been in high school. We just can not to play. We know they are suppose to be all that, but we feel like we have a lot of game too."

Cowan believes his personal game has improved during the offseason.

"I have gotten a little faster and a little bigger than last year. I am up to 176, and last year I was playing at 160. I have put on 16 pounds of good weight since last year." Recommended Stories
