MILES CAMPBELL #3, TE (6'3"/210lbs C/O 2021)

SOUTH PAULDING HIGH SCHOOL, DOUGLASVILLE, GEORGIA

   

SESM: What was it like for you growing up? How many siblings?

Growing up I had a stable home. I grew up in a two parent home. I have a younger sister who's 2 years younger then me. She's a track star. Overall, I had a pretty good childhood.

SESM: What are your strengths, physically and mentally, as a running back/defensive back? Which side of the ball do you prefer?

My strengths are many. I have the versatility to play any position on the field. I choose to focus on the offensive side of the ball, because I feel that's where I can make the biggest impact. Mentally, my football IQ is great. I can read coverages, which helps me understand which routes to run to beat certain defenses. That helps my quarterback and the team succeed.

SESM: Is there any significance to your jersey number (Why did you wear #3)?

Growing up, I was always #21. When I changed positions, I decided I wanted to change to #3. Once I changed, it grew on me and I never looked back. I've always heard 3rd time's the charm, and two plus one equals three.

SESM: Do you have a pregame ritual that you do before every game? If so, will you share with the readers?

Yes. I always listen to “Number 1 Spot” by Ludacris. That song gets me in the right mindset before I go out and play.

SESM: What advice has a coach given you that you'll always remember?

To stay humble when I get rewarded, and remember when I didn’t have all of the accolades. Also, to continue to work hard like I still have nothing.

SESM: How do you want your teammates to remember you?

As an energetic, non-stop hard worker, who they can count on any time.

SESM: What would you change if you could replay the season?

I'd have more intensity and have more fun.

SESM: If you didn’t play football, what sport would you like to play? Why?

I would say, baseball. It’s fun to play, and I can bring the same intensity I do in football.

SESM: What has football taught you that carries over into the other areas of your life?

To be accountable, as well as, whatever you put in you'll get out.

SESM: What is your fondest memory of this past season?

Just how well we have grown together as a team. I think that’s a memory I will have forever.

SESM: What motivated you to play football?

Just the love of the game, and what it can provide for my family.

SESM: Who is your favorite football player?

Cam Newton.

SESM: Who would you compare your style of play to, NFL or NCAA?

In a way, Jabrill Peppers. He was so versatile in college.

SESM: Would you rather have the ball at your own 20 yard line, down five points with four minutes left, driving for the win, or would you rather have your defense on the field, in the same scenario, against the opposing team's offense? Why?

I would want to be on the field in that situation. I don't want to point fingers at anyone for what happens in a game.  I like being in “pressuring situations", because I think no moment is too big.

SESM: Describe yourself as a person off the field. Tell us about the person and not the athlete. What are your educational goals/career goals? What do you want people to know about Miles Campbell?

That I’m a chill guy. I like to have fun and joke around. I’m good at making friends. I want to major in Marketing and Business Management. I want to not worry about my life and live life to the fullest.

THOMAS MARSHALL #18, RB/DB (5'11"/195lbs C/O 2020)

SOUTH PAULDING HIGH SCHOOL, DOUGLASVILLE, GEORGIA

SESM: What was it like for you growing up?

Two of my brothers (Jalen Marshall and Damon Buffington) played sports, therefore, I was always at a football or basketball game. 

SESM: How many sibling do you have? Are you the oldest child, middle, or the youngest?

I have 4 brothers; Jalen Marshall, Damon Buffington, a younger brother who's currently in the tenth grade, and a older brother who's out of school. I'm the middle child.

SESM: What are your strengths, physically and mentally, as a running back/defensive back? Which side of the ball do you prefer?

Physically, I’m not the biggest or strongest guy, but I put in the work (in the weight room) and it helps. It allows me to be stronger than I look, which surprises some people when we make contact. Mentally, my strengths are mental toughness through adversity, and patience. What I mean is, I get stronger as the game goes on because I get a feel for it. While others let fatigue affect them, I do not. I also never allow myself to get to emotionally wrapped up about things I can't control. As far as which side of the ball I prefer, I prefer to be a running back, but I'll play anywhere.

SESM: Is there any significance to your jersey number (Why did you wear #18 and why the change to #8)?

Originally I wore number 18 because my coach gave it to me, but then I made it my own. However, for my senior year, I just felt I needed a change.

SESM: Do you have a pregame ritual that you do before your games? If so, will you share it with the readers?

Before every game, I listen to music and talk to friends. Then, before I take the field, I pray to God to watch over me. I just treat it like a normal day of practice, but with an audience.

SESM: You are a two sport athlete (football and basketball) with a GPA of 3.73. How difficult/easy is it for you to balance the roles of student and student athlete?

My parents make it easy by requiring that I maintain good grades. Between study hall and teachers with flexible tutoring hours, there isn’t any excuse why I shouldn't succeed academically.

SESM: What was the most important game you played? Why?

Our game against Northgate. We came back from a three touchdown deficit, going into the 4th quarter, to win the game. We were predicted to lose that game by 14 points.

SESM: How do you stay motivated after losing a game?

I want a shot at redemption. Losing never sits well with me, so whenever I lose, I work harder to prevent it from happening again.

SESM: You play on both sides of the ball. Would you rather have the ball on your own 20 yard line, down five points with four minutes left, driving for the win, or would you rather have your defense on the field, in the same scenario, against the opposing team's offense? Why?

I would rather be up with the ball. I trust my defense in that scenario, but I believe that my brother, Jalen Marshall, will make a play.

SESM: What advice has a coach given you that you'll always remember?

To not be afraid to make a mistake. When trying to make a great play, you can’t be scared of what could happen.

SESM: How do you want your teammates to remember you?

As someone they could rely on to make a play, as well as, a guy they could come to, off the field, if they ever needed something.

SESM: What motivated you to play football?

My love for the sport and the opportunity to come out of college debt free with a degree. That could lead to me getting a great job.

SESM: Who is your favorite football player?

Offensive, it's Emmitt Smith. Defensive, Sean Taylor.

SESM: Who would you compare your style of play to (NFL or NCAA)?

Elijah Holyfield, University of Georgia. I say that because I'm a tough runner who can make you miss occasionally, but I'm not afraid to deliver a blow.

SESM: What would you change if you could replay the 2018 season?

The outcome of the close games that didn’t go our way by adjusting to the opponent faster.

SESM: Describe yourself as a person, off the field, not the athlete. What are your educational and career goals? What do you want people to know about Thomas Marshall, the person.

I strive to lighten up the days of the people I come in contact with, whether they are a teacher, a lunch lady, or a friend. I feel everybody goes through rough times, so treating people poorly isn’t going to do anybody any good. I aspire to earn a free education, where I will then study exercise science, to become a physical therapist. I want to be a physical therapist so I can help people return to their normal lives.

HUNTER JENNINGS #6, QB, (6'1"/180lbs C/O 2020)

PAULDING COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL, DALLAS, GEORGIA

  

SESM: What was it like for you growing up? How many siblings? Are you the oldest child, the middle, or the youngest?

Life has been pretty straight forward for me. I grew up in a middle class Christian family. I was raised to be a hard worker, and on the premise that nothing in life comes for free. That is the principle that I've based most of my life decisions off. I have two siblings; my sister Samantha (15) and my brother Cory (24). I’m the middle child.

SESM: What are your strengths, physically and mentally, as a Quarterback?

Physically, my strength would be my height. I'm 6'1", which is good height for a quarterback. I don't struggle to see over linemen, which makes it easier for me to see the field and read coverages. I would say my biggest strength mentally, and probably overall, would be my ability to always stay positive. I’m always cheering everyone on the field and constantly encouraging guys, even when things aren’t going so well. I believe that is what makes me a quality leader. People tend to look up to a person who is never down or out. If you’re always positive, people seem to respond to you better, and they're more likely to follow.

SESM: Is there any significance to your jersey number (Why did you wear #6)?

My freshman year, I was number 7 and there was a senior that wore number 6 (Dionte Ruffin). He plays for Western Kentucky now. He was a great role model, and an even better leader. I always looked up to him as a freshman, so the year after he left (my sophomore year), I decided I wanted to wear #6, as a show of respect for him. I wanted to carry on the example he set.

SESM: Describe what being the leader of your team (as a quarterback) is like for you?

It can be good and bad. When things are going good, everybody looks up to you and gives you praise. When things get tough, or aren’t going well, a lot of the time you get the blame.

SESM: Do you have a pregame ritual that you do before every game? If so, will you share with the readers?

Yes, I don’t mind. Before every game, I like to take a knee and pray below the field goal posts. It calms me down and gets some of the pregame jitters out. It also lets everybody know who I am, and what I stand for.

SESM: What advice has a coach given you that you'll always remember?

My coach is big on telling us that character and integrity are the most important things you can have. If you have those things, no matter your athletic ability or anything else, you will be successful in life. I agree with him 100% on that.

SESM: How do you prepare for the next level of your football career?

I train hard for the most part, and maintain good grades in school. If I stay focused on what I need to do, I’ll be able to achieve it. I’m at school before school hours, 3 or 4 days out of the week, working on my throwing or just conditioning with the team.

SESM: What would you change if you could replay the season?

I’d trust my self more. I often didn't capitalize on opportunities because I didn’t trust that I could make the throw, or that I made the right reads.

SESM: How did you stay motivated after losing a game?

I always looked on the bright side of things. That’s been my mind set since I was very young. I’m a very optimistic person who tends to always find the good in things. I’d just keep my head up, and know that we have a game the next week . If we practice hard and stay focused, we could accomplish what we didn’t the week before.

SESM: What do you plan on majoring in at the next level?

I’m looking to go into business management, but I’m not 100% sure. I’m open minded as of now.

SESM: How do you want your teammates to remember you?

I want my teammates to always remember me as the guy who, not only kept his head up, but theirs too. I want to be remembered as a reliable leader that was always there for them, and on the positive side of things.

SESM: What motivated you to play football?

My dad did. My dad had a huge influence on my life. I’ve always looked up to him and still do. As a young boy, seeing how much he loved the sport, and the fact that he played in his earlier years, inspired me to want to do it as well.

SESM: Who is your favorite football player?

Right now, it has to be Russell Wilson. He’s a great leader on the field. I like his play style, how he carries himself, and especially how outspoken he is about his faith. He is overall a great role model, and a quality player.

SESM: Who would you compare your style of play to, NFL or NCAA?

I’d say Cam Newton. He and I are both agile quarterbacks able to put it down field when needed, but also do work on the ground when necessary.

SESM: Would you rather your offense have the ball at your own 20 yard line, down five points with four minutes left, driving for the win, or would you rather have your defense on the field, in the same scenario, against the opposing team's offense? Why?

I’d rather have the ball.  Those are the type of moments you live for in football. Knowing what you have to get done and what you have to do to achieve it, is big in that type of scenario. Being able to focus on what needs to be done, is also necessary. I don’t know, just something about the pressure of the situation, and knowing I can control my own fate and come out on top is the greatest feeling ever!

SESM: Describe yourself as a person, off the field. Tell us about the person, not the athlete. What are your educational/career goals? What do you want people to know about Hunter Jennings?

Off campus and off the field, I’m still a very optimistic and positive person. I rarely frown or show frustration on my face at work, or at school. I’m a hard working individual that strives for success, and to be the best. I take all A.P. and honors classes at school, which push me everyday to be the best I can be, educational wise.

JHALYN SHULER #17, OLB, 6'2"/200lbs C/O 2020)

ABBEVILLE HIGH SCHOOL, ABBEVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA

SESM: What was it like for you growing up? How many siblings?

My life was pretty normal growing up. We were born in Atlanta  and moved to Abbeville about 3 years later. We were raised by a single mother who's a school teacher, and still works very hard. I have an older brother who's 19 and goes to college at Coastal, and a twin sister. My brother introduced me to football. He was playing for a recreation league team, and I wanted to be like him. He taught me the basic skills of the game, until I was old enough to understand and play.

SESM: Is there any significance to your jersey number (Why did you wear #17)?

It’s actually pretty funny, because my brother wore number 16, and like I said, I wanted to be just like him. He was two grades ahead of me, so I never thought we would have an opportunity to play together. My sophomore year, I got moved to varsity before the season started and we ended up playing on the same level. He had number 16 and I asked coach if #17 was open. It was, so I got the closest number to his.

SESM: Do you have a pregame ritual that you do before every game? If so, will you share with the readers?

Before we run through the banner, I go off to the side of the team and just thank God for the opportunities and athleticism he gave me. It’s real quick, maybe 7 seconds.

SESM: What was the most important game you played? Why?

My tenth grade year, I was second team and we lost to Hartsville. The next week, the starter got suspended, so I was given an opportunity to play with the first team defense. We played Liberty, and I had 9 tackles, a sack, and 2 tackles for loss. The next week he came back and coach started him over me. I outworked him in every drill until they started giving me more snaps than him. To this day, I play with the same anger and passion in every game.

SESM: How did you stay motivated after a loss?

The Hartsville game was the only game I’ve ever lost in high school, so I really can't tell you much about that. My coach always tells us, “You have to have a bad memory to play football”, and in Abbeville, we have a “FIDO” mentality, which means “Forget it and drive on”. We always try to look forward, get better, and prepare for the next game.

SESM: What advice has the coach given you that you'll always remember?

Whenever I'm struggling with anything, I talk to my position coach, Coach D. He always closes our talks with “You got to get out of your own way. Just try to be a better Jhalyn Shuler than you were yesterday”.

SESM: Who is your favorite football player?

JuJu Smith-Schuster. His personality and character is better than any professional athlete I have ever seen. It goes along with him being a great wide receiver.

SESM: Who would you compare your style of play to, NFL or NCAA?

Nobody.

SESM: Would you rather your offense have the ball at your own 20 yard line, down five points with four minutes left, driving for the win, or would you rather have your defense on the field, in the same scenario, against the opposing team's offense? Why?

I'd rather have my defense on the field. We're clutch in goal line situations when we need to be, and pretty much anywhere else on the field. I know for a fact that my defense won’t fold under pressure.

SESM: Describe yourself as a person off the field. Tell us about the person and not the athlete. What are your educational/career goals? What do you want people to know about Jhalyn Shuler?

I am a very humble person. I hardly ever take credit for anything I do. I like to make people laugh, smile, and feel comfortable. In school, I'm pretty much the same way. Most of my teachers like me. I try to make their jobs easier by being a good student. At home, I mostly stay in my room, on my phone, or playing video games with my friends.

I would change some of my energy, and would try to bring the team together, better, to play as one.

JAQUALON SHERROD, WR/DB #17 (5'8"/137lbs C/O 2020)

NOXUBEE COUNTY TIGERS, MACON, MISSISSIPPI

 

1.(SEMSM) Provide some background of your early life. What was it like for you growing up? 

(JAQUALON)  I grew up in a small area which was known as Lucas Hill. It was the country where we played football, basketball, kickball, and any other sport on cement. For me, I was blessed greatly to grow up with a strong support system. My dad was the first person to put me in some football pads and I fell in love with the game. When I was 6yrs old, I started playing the game. I also have siblings that played or still play the game.     

2.(SEMSM) What is the next step for you, during this off season, to prepare for next season? 

(JAQUALON)  I will be in the weight room, putting on more and more pounds. I will work on getting faster and more explosive. I will also work on  my footwork and also studying for a better understanding of the game 

3.(SEMSM)  What are your strengths as a WR and as a DB?  

(JAQUALON) My strengths at WR are, my footwork abilities, ability to play aggressive, knowing ball placement, and knowing how to eat up that cushion.... My strengths at DB are, being aggressive, keeping my feet, staying on my toes, and getting in the receiver's head.

4.(SEMSM) What motivated you to play football? 

(JAQUALON)  My FAMILY, because they know the sport can carry me a long way and also pay for my education while in college. Also, in this small area of Macon, MS, football was something better to rely on and bring my city together for something POSITIVE. The fact that GOD blessed me with the ability to play football, I know MANY people wish they can have the ability to play this sport.   

5.(SEMSM) Where do you envision yourself playing at the next level of your football career?   

(JAQUALON)  I was really thinking over about this, but I know I’m going for FREE to play football so I probably would say to a school that likes to throw the ball and where I could come in starting.

6.(SEMSM) Who is your favorite football player? 

(JAQUALON)  Odell Beckham Jr. 

7.(SEMSM) Who would you compare your style of play to in the NFL or NCAA? 

(JAQUALON)  Desmon White   

8.(SEMSM) You play both ways. Which do you like more, offense and defense? Why?

(JAQUALON)  Offense, because I want to make things happen with the ball in my hands,  because the game is about that one ball on the field. I like it when the game depends more on the offense.

 9.(SEMSM) Would you rather your opponent have the ball on their own 20 yard line, down five points with four minutes to go with your defense on field to stop them or watch your offense go against the opposing defense in the same scenario? Why? 

(JAQUALON)  Really, either one would be exciting, because we have the best defense in our region. I love the pressure, so I’ll rather have the ball to make something special/eciting happen by having the ball in the final minutes!!!   

10.(SEMSM) Describe yourself as a person off the field. 

(JAQUALON)  Off the field, I’m a talkative and energetic type of person. I also encourage other people while helping elderly during community service as a member of 'Kappa League'. Spending time with my family and I love going to different places and I also focus on my EDUCATION because I can’t go anywhere without it.
