One of top juniors on the defensive side of the ball in the state of Mississippi for 2013 is Oxford…
Pegues Leads Charger D
Going into his Jr year, Pegues knew he had some big shoes to fill. He would be replacing Larry Pettis on both sides of the ball. Larry has gone on to play as a true Freshman for Louisiana's Ragin Cajuns, but Pegues reports that Pettis was instrumental in making him the player he is today.
"Yeah, Larry is like a big brother to me. He took the time to explain to me how to run routes and get open and use my body to shield defenders. On defense, nobody knew how good Larry was. I play the same rush end position he played so I get to read and react and attack the ball. It was tough for us at first, that class did so much for our program. But we knew we had to come in and play hard and do what we could to make our town proud."
Schools are starting to notice the abilities that Pegues brings to the table. Earlier this year, Mississippi State invited Pegues down for a game and he has been invited back for some more.
"Man that was a fun game. That jumbotron is off the hook. And all those cowbells are carzy. I went with my brother Lamont Dean. We both had a great time. It was nice to know that a school like that has an interest in me already. I plan on camping there this summer and hoping to get an offer."
Another school that Pegues hopes to hear from soon is Louisiana's Ragin Cajuns. He has two very good friends there and would love to start and Oxford pipeline to Lafayette.
"Oh yeah, man if they are interested, so am I. Getting to play again with Larry and DeShaun McNeal would be awesome. Those guys are my boys and they are great players. I really like playing defense the most because I get to hit people. Maybe they can see what I can do when I hit. But I will keep all of my options open and see what comes my way."
