Green Ready To Burst Onto Scene

The spread offense seems to be taking over the game of football at every single level.  It seems like coaches at all levels are realizing that in order to keep up with the times, they need to get the ball in their play-makers hands and let them make plays.  One of the things that you need in order to be successful is to have wide receivers that can stretch the field and make big plays in the passing game.


Wesson High School is making the jump to 3A this coming season.  In anticipation of that jump, they are changing to a pistol variation of the spread for the coming season.  Luckily for the Cobras, they have a big play wide receiver ready to make a statement on the field.

At 6 foot 4  200 pounds, Farrod Green has the talent and drive to be a big weapon in the Cobras offense.  Knowing he has to continue to work to improve, Green is working hard to get better at every aspect of his game.

“I would consider myself a deep threat,” said Green.  “I am not afraid to go across the middle though.  Football is a physical game and its about contact and I love it.

“I am working on my routes right now.  I am working very hard to get my routes more precise.  I want to get better at everything.  I am working on my speed and on getting bigger and more physical.”

Green understands the importance of education in his life.  He wants to make sure that he finds a perfect fit of football and education at the next level.

“I have not decided yet what I want to major in,” he said.  “But education is the most important thing in my recruiting.  I also want to stay close to home so my parents can come and watch me play in college.  Early playing time is something that would grab my attention as well.”

Green has attended camps at both Mississippi State and Southern Mississippi so far.  He has a dream that he would like to see fulfilled in his football career.

“I really want to play in the SEC so schools like LSU, Mississippi State, and Ole Miss have grabbed my attention,” he said.  “I had a really good time at the Mississippi State camp.  I really liked working with Coach Gonzales.  I learned so much from him.  There was a lot of good competition there as well.  I really liked all the facilities there.  I didn’t know Mississippi State had all of that.  It was cool working with several different quarterbacks as well.”
