Harrison Central's Nick Redmond was like many other Mississippi high school players last week having to wait to begin his senior season.

But the 6-foot-5, 312-pound tackle took advantage of the night off to scout their week one opponent D'Iberville.

"I guess it's a good thing," Redmond said. "A lot of us went and saw D'Iberville play. I think we've got a pretty good chance at beating them. Offensively they run up the middle a lot and if you clog up the middle then they weren't good at running outside last week. Defensively they don't run a true 50.
