"I was real happy about it," said Penn of the Golden Eagles' offer. "I talked with Coach Mancuso about it, so I went ahead and gave them a verbal. I called and talked the linebacker coach today." Justin is being recruited as an outside linebacker by USM. Earlier this season, Penn got some other welcome news when he was selected to play in the Mississippi/Alabama All-Star game. "My coach told me about and I was real excited," said Justin of his selection. "I was just in shock. I didn't know what to say. All of my classmates found out about it because they told me at school. When I got home I told my mama about it. Everybody is real proud for me." Before Penn suits up for the Golden Eagles or the Mississippi All-Stars, he still has some Bassfield Yellow Jacket business to attend to. "We play Loyd State this week in the playoffs," said Justin. "They have a real good team, but I believe the only team that can really beat us is ourselves. If we play like we can, we should get a win and go a long way in the playoffs."
