Jefferson, Jefferson, Jefferson

Booker T. Washington High School doesn't fly Jeremy Jefferson in for games the way a football player named Jefferson was in the movie "Fast Times at Ridgemont High.''

But this Jefferson has the same effect.

He rushed for more than 200 yards per game last season. He looks like he may be even better this season.

Granted, Woodlawn appeared to be defenseless in the jamboree on Friday night. But Jefferson was in midseason form with nine carries for 88 yards and two touchdowns in what amounts to a quarter of high school football.

There will be some who wonder why Jefferson isn't a big-time recruit. The answer to that question is fairly simple - size.

Still, you would have to think some smaller school would take a chance on the kid if for no other reason than his production.

If nothing else, though, he is a fine high school football player to watch. That in itself should be enough.
