The Mississippi State head coach wants his quarterback to be behind the wheel of that sports car, also known as the offense.
Raphael Leonard is a man of few words, but coach Jamie Mitchell says when he speaks, people listen.

"He is a huge play maker for us," Mitchell said. "It certainly makes my job easier. We just have to make sure he gets plenty of touches on Friday nightsÂ because he is going to make big plays."

Putting on the pads and jerseys early on a Saturday morning can signal only one thing â€“ high school football season is around the corner.
"It means it is here," Starkville High quarterback Brady Davis said. "It is time to start and we are ready to get this season rolling."
