Rivals250 athlete Brent Vinson and Hampton (Va.) Phoebus finished the regular season last week with an impressive 54-6 victory over Bethel. The 6-foot-2, 180-pounder had an exceptional game where he made plays on every aspect of the field.
"I finished the game with three total touchdowns including one of them being a punt return for a touchdown," he said. "I also recorded two interceptions and took two carries for 70 yards."
This week Phoebus kicks off postseason play against a solid Maury team.
"We've just got to stay focused because now it's win or go home," he said. "They'll probably be the best team we've played yet and they're going to bring a lot of different formations and we'll just have to adjust to how they play. I'm looking forward to it."
Vinson will have an audience there as coach Billy Gonzalez from the University of Florida has already confirmed he'll be coming.
Previously the No. 16 athlete in the country was planning to take an official to Virginia this weekend for the Virginia Tech game. Vinson still plans on going, but instead it'll be just an unofficial.
"It's going to be a really good game as most of the players know each other," he said. "It's a big rivalry and I'm just going to watch it and see what it's like up there. I've been up plenty of times, but I want to check it out again."
The No. 15 player in Virginia still plans to take officials to Virginia Tech, Virginia, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee after the season.
"Right now I'm just focusing on winning these games in the playoffs so that we can make it to Richmond."
