Local High School Football Seniors Sign College Scholarships

Torey Staten set numerous records at D'Iberville, piling up 6-thousand-343 all-purpose yards and bagged 66 touchdowns in three years as the Warriors starting running back. However, because of his 5 foot 7 170 pound frame, big-time football programs overlooked the gifted running back.
Delta State didn't waste anytime in offering Staten a scholarship. He signed on the dotted line Wednesday morning.

Torey said, "They've got small running backs like Warrick Dunn and Barry Sanders and I just look up to them and play up to my expectations and I know what I can do and I'll bring that to Delta State."

Harrison Central lineman Robby D'Angelo has what college football coaches were looking for... size. The 6-3 280 pound center decided to stay close to home and maybe one day hike the ball to his older brother.. Micky D'Angelo.. who served as backup quarterback at Southern Miss last season. He can't wait to play for Golden Eagles head coach Jeff Bower.

Robby said, "He's a real honest guy. He's up front with you and I like the way he motivates the team." Besides D'Angelo, the Golden Eagles also signed Gulfport defensive lineman DeMarcus Nash a 6-5 285 pound standout.

Another big offensive lineman James McCoy a 6-4 300 pound tackle from Moss Point is heading to Oxford. He decided to sign with the Ole Miss  Rebels of head coach David Cutcliffe.

McCoy said, "Ole Miss has a power offense and I look forward to going up there to work with Eli Manning. I know the offensive linemen who are there now will push me to be better."

Harrison Central quarterback Jeremy Lee is bound for Jackson State. This past season Jeremy passed for 2-thousand-265 yards with 17 touchdowns adding 364 yards rushing and 5 TD's.

Jeremy said, "Jackson State has a good coaching staff and I feel comfortable there. They also promised me a shot at quarterback and that had a lot to do with me choosing Jackson State over Grambling State."

Besides Lee, Harrison Central  wide reciever Jordan Beard  inked with Jackson State. He snagged a school record 51 passes with 4 touchdowns this past season.
