Pell City — Grade: Senior.

Parents: Ron and Tonya Peters.

Position:  Outside linebacker.

Other varsity sports: Baseball.

Football or baseball?: “Football. I like hitting people. It’s pretty laid back on the baseball field. I like being more physical.”

The biggest challenge for a linebacker:  “Getting past the offensive linemen.”

Hopes for his senior season: “I would like to get over 90 tackles. I had 82 last year. I want to see us play as a team, and I’d like to go at least to the second round of the playoffs.”

The team he’d most like to beat this season: “Oxford. Everybody in our locker room would say that. We’ve been rivals for a while.”

After high school: “I’d like to be playing football somewhere. Maybe Jax State.”
