I had a column today on Shannon WR William Green, who led the area in receiving yards last season and will be a senior. Being only 5-foot-8, he’s overlooked by a lot of folks, particularly SEC schools. Yeah, well, Bob Sanders is 5-8, too. Hmm.
Green is not alone. Several NeMiss football players are “under the radar” sorts, including RB Richard Freelon of Bruce. Of course, once the season begins, a lot of these guys could start drawing more interest; let’s hope so. Who are some of those other underappreciated players? Off the top of my head, here are a few: LB Rudy Cox, Itawamba AHS; QB Marcus Hinton, Aberdeen; WR/RB/FS Brandon Lawrence, Calhoun City; and CB James McAuley, Tupelo.
Like I said, that’s just off the top of my head. Help me fill in the blanks: Who are some of the area’s best players that almost no one knows about?
