"Oh man it was cool," Desmond Parks said. "I had a couple nice catches today. I think they threw it my way 10 times and I caught eight balls, one went out-of-bounds and one was real short in the dirt."
"I feel real good about the way thing went today. We werenít trying to score but instead working on putting in new plays and our team is stacked. I have been working with two quarterbacks; one of them is committed to West Virginia (Eugene Smith) and the other to Georgia (Zach Mettenberger).They have moved some players to the other side but I donít think it will matter."

"The East's wide receivers look almost like an NFL group. Michael Bowman and Stephen Hill both go 6'4-6'5 and are built ready to play in college. Throw in the precise routes of Steadman Bailey and the speed of Larry Raper and Chris Fields and this is one impressive group. They also have some quarterbacks who can get the ball downfield in Zach Mettenberger and Eugene Smith, as well as an accurate underneath guy in Adam Morgan. On the flipside..."
