standout player at Dudley High School in
Greensboro, N.C., is patiently awaiting his
chance to prove he can also do it for the
Rams of WSSU. ^ ,
James, an all conference defensive back
and quarterback while in high school, says
the major transition between high school

defenses, and a more complex offense.
Although he hasn’t had much playing
time, he feels when given the chance he’ll
prove himself as a more than adequate
quarterback for the Rams.
He feels the Rams, who are once again
favored to win the Southern Division in
football, will be a better team once they puU
together as a unit and as the season
As a potential Mass Communications
major, he says getting a chance to play is
really important. On the other hand, “I feel
my first priority is my education and in one
way or another, I will be successful.”
