Gulfport vs. Harrison Central
Posted Oct 6, 2008

The Mississippi Gulf coast is beginning to see resurgence in talent. Several players along the coast are getting interest from college recruiters. The talent pool looks to be even deeper for the coast next season. Road Report
Ricky Floyd Gulfport HS (MS) RB / #5
C/O 2009
Scout's Take: Ricky runs bigger than his size would indicate. He has a very strong base and he really shows good leg drive at the point of contact. He finishes most of his runs by lowering his shoulder and falling forward. A strong senior season should produce some offers from four year schools.
Bryant Lavender Gulfport HS (MS) WR / #9
C/O 2009
Scout's Take: Bryant is very wirey and he will need to bulk up at the next level. He is a very emotional and excitable player. He enjoys watching one of his teammates succeed almost as much as he enjoys making the big play himself. He is a good route runner who is able to distance himself from defensisve backs when the ball is in the air.
Derrick Lattimore Gulfport HS (MS) QB/WR #10
C/O 2010
Scout's Take: More quick than fast, Derrick has the ability to make people miss in the open field. He is an athlete playing quarterback and he is succesful at the high school level. He will likely move to another spot at the next level. He could play defensive back, but he looks real natural with the ball in his hands.
Wes Rea Harrison Central HS (MS) OT / #73
C/O 2010
Scout's Take: Wes moves pretty well for a bigger guy. He does not have the stiffness that a lot of prospects have with his impressive frame. He is a work progress and he admits he has a lot to learn. He is getting by mainly on athleticism and raw ability rather than technique. Once he really gets his feet under him, he could make a nice addition on a college offensive line.
Aerion Williams Harrison Central HS (MS) QB/WR/DB #5
C/O 2010
Scout's Take: Aerion is a winner. He may have been the top prospect on the field for either team. He is a very good high school quarterback, but he could play any number of positions. He has the ability to play any of the skill positions. If I were a college coach, I would offer him. We could figure out his position when he got on campus.
Nicholas Redmond Harrison Central HS (MS) OT / #79
C/O 2011
Scout's Take: These days everyone has to remind you of someone in order to explain their ability. Perhaps the best comparison for Nicholas would be Paul Bunyan. Redmond is a mountain of a man and he is only a 10th grader. Once he understands how much bigger he is than everyone else, he can be a dominant left tackle. He can be as good as he wants to be.
