How did your school do this weekend and how do you feel you played?

"We only played a half and won 38-6, so I felt we did very good as a team and I did play well. I think as a team we are playing better each time out and will be very good by season's end."

What classification does your high school play?

"We play in 6-A and the competition is very good. Right now we are 2-0 and hoping to keeping on winning right through to the state championship."

Etienne, how many schools are there left that you are considering?

"Well, the schools left on my list are Ohio State, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Florida, Miami, and USC.

So, these are the schools that a decision will come?

"Yes sir, I can't see any other school coming into the picture."

Do you have a timetable for when you hope to make a decision on a college?

"I'd like to have it done by November but nothing is set in stone. If I feel comfortable on a school, I'll make it right then. That's the most important thing, being comfortable with my decision and the school."

What will be the biggest thing that makes you feel comfortable with any particular school?

"It's a combination of things, teammates, academics, playing time, how well the school is doing on the football field. I want to be able to feel like a family when I am at college. I want to fit in and be happy."

There was a rumor floating around that Miami was a lock for you because of distance, is that true?

"No sir. Distance is not a factor at all. Comfort is the only thing that is set in stone."

Do you plan on making any visits, either official or unofficial any time soon?

"Yes sir, I'd like to visit Ohio State and Georgia Tech as sure visits either on official or unofficial. I will probably take in a visit to Florida too because they are close by. I'll also go visit Miami too because they are right here and it is easy to make an unofficial visit to them.
