Holly Springs has stumbled out of the gate to begin the season, but district play brings new chances and a new season. Defensive back Darryl Kinkle has done his part, but he is not satisfied with personal accomplishments if the team comes up short of victory.

"We are a pretty good team, but we are not executing like we need to," said Kinkle. "We're 1-3 right now. We have Independence this week. They do a lot of the same things we do, but pass the ball. They run a lot of three wide receiver sets."

Darryl is attracting plenty of attention, but so far offers have been hard to come by. With a strong senior season, Kinkle hopes to change that.

"I get calls from Southern Miss," said Darryl. "Coach Barney (Farrar) is recruiting me. He said they were going to offer me, but I haven't got anything on that. I am not 100% about that yet.

"I am getting letters from Southern Miss, Tulane, Ole Miss, Memphis and a few more. I get a few letters from Auburn and Alabama. It's been a minute since I got anything from Auburn."

Kinkle understands that his preferences can only be as lengthy as his options, but he has a good idea about what he wants in a college program.

"I want to go to an up and coming program that I can fit in," said Darryl. "I think I will probably play corner or return man. USM, North Alabama and Louisiana Tech have all talked to me about playing receiver, so that's something to look at too."

When decision time comes, the talented two way standout will seek the counsel of his head coach and his family before casting his lot with any college program.

"I am going to talk to my head coach a lot about everything," said Kinkle. "He has been guiding me since the seventh grade. He wants me to do what's best for me. He is the one that really opened my eyes to college ball.

"My family wants me to do what's best for me. They are just happy that I am going to be going to college."
