Don’t blink or you might miss the reference to Tupelo’s Chris Garrett in this story about LSU’s quarterback situation.
Garrett’s in a challenging spot, with sophomore Jordan Jefferson the starter, third-year sophomore Jarrett Lee pushing him and heralded true freshman Russell Shepard also in the wings. Garrett helped himself by getting out of high school last December and going through spring practice.
Without a crystal ball, of course, there’s no way to know how this plays out. Garrett could eventually be one of those fifth-year seniors who leads the Tigers to glory, or he might wind up taking his last snaps at Delta State — like Baldwyn’s Blake Barnes did after several years of carrying a clipboard at Georgia.
