The West Point Green Wave has roared out of the gate. Three weeks have produced three blowout wins. Weapons continue to emerge for the Wave. This past weekend against Starkille, football newcomer Curtis Hall made his presence known.

"I think I am doing pretty good," said Hall. "Last week I had five catches for 109 yards. I did good in our first two games, but we didn't throw it as much because our running game was working so well."

Expectations were extremely high for West Point heading into the season. Hall believes the team is exceeding those expectations.

"Our offensive line is stepping up," said Hall. "They are really blocking better. They are doing better now than they did during the spring game and the jamboree.

"Mike (Michael Carr) is passing the ball better too. He is doing really good. We are expecting big things out of Mike."

Curtis is still very new to the game of organized football. This is his first season to play with the varsity. He drew rave reviews from onlookers during the spring and in the early days of fall camp.

"It's all going good," said Hall of the transition. "I thought it was going to be a lot harder on me. I thought there was going to be a lot more contact and a lot more conditioning. It's been hard, but I have been able to handle everything. It's fun being out there."

Hall spent some time this summer attending 7-on-7 camps including some time on the campus of the University of Alabama. The Tide has maintained contact with the rising wide out.

"Alabama is sending me some things," said Curtis. "I went over there for their game with Tulane. I talked to one of the coaches. He told me they wanted to see some film of me and he told me to keep up the good work."

A strong senior season will be required if Hall is to attract some late college offers and he is aware of what he needs to do to prove himself. He hopes football will help pay for his college education.

"I am trying to find a good team with some good coaches," said Curtis. "I am going to look at academics. I like doing my school work and things like that. I would really like to major in sports communication or something like that."
