Green in the 2014 Mix

Green in the 2014 Mix

The Mississippi delta produces some of the most gifted athletes in the state of Mississippi each and every year. One of the top offerings from the Delta for the 2014 class is Greenville-Weston product Gerri Green. Despite a junior season that was short on wins, Green was a bright spot. As a result, the talented linebacker is already hearing from college programs.

"We did some good things this year, but we didn't win like we wanted to," said Green of his team's 2-9 campaign. "I know I gave my all to the team and did all I could do to help.

"Even after we found out we weren't going to make the playoffs, I kept playing hard. I am always going to play hard and try to get a win."

The 6-5, 205 pounder spent some time this spring and summer getting to know some college programs by attending their camp sessions.

The 2012 football season has provided Green with several invitations to attend college games, but he was only able to make one trip.

"I went to see Mississippi State when they played South Alabama," said Green. "That's the only game I have been to.

"I am sort of a fan of Mississippi State, so I have watched them a lot on TV.

"I feel like they are having a good season. They got down a little bit after they lost to Alabama, so I was real happy to see them get a win this past week against Arkansas.

"I have been hearing some from Louisiana-Lafayette too. They've invited me to their games, but I haven't been able to make it down there."

Green was one of his team's leading tacklers this fall and he was a able to make an offensive contribution reeling in few touchdown passes.

Looking ahead to his college future, Green is open to playing where he is needed most.

"I don't know if I will play linebacker, defensive end or something else in college," said Green. "I feel like I can learn to play any position and I will play wherever the team needs me to play.

"I am just a football player. I love playing the game and I will play whatever I need to play to help my team."
