Three-star athlete plans a visit

Demetrius Alston and his Norcross (Ga.) teammates entered the season out to rebound from a less than acceptable 2009 that saw the Blue Devils miss the playoffs.

Norcross opened the year in impressive fashion two weeks ago with a 21-12 win over Dacula with Alston aiding the cause on defense.

The 6-foot-4, 205-pound three-star prospect made six tackles and two sacks in his senior debut to get the year started off on the right foot.

"During the offseason we worked so hard because we ended our previous season at 5-5," Alston said. "We knew we shouldn't play like that. We've always been a winning class so we started off the offseason working hard and getting our mind right knowing that it's all on us to do something this year. We got our minds right and came out there and played. We had a delay in the game and had to come back Saturday and finish it."

Alston spent his off week last Friday scouting the Blue Devils upcoming opponent Parkview.

"I looked at their film and went and saw them play Stephenson," Alston said. "It doesn't seem like their line is that good. They are big but their feet are slow. You can tell when they pop their hands up when they are going to pass rush. I don't think they are going to score on us personally. I guess everybody thinks we are going to be sorry based off of last year but that's not the case."

Alston currently holds scholarship offers from West Virginia, Mississippi State, Eastern Michigan, Central Florida and Middle Tennessee and is being recruited as a defensive end or outside linebacker.
