Fernandez-Pierre is a 335-pound nose guard who quit football in eighth grade because of a neck injury. He joined the cheerleading team but was persuaded to come back out for football for his senior year.
Now, he plays the game, and performs at halftime during Episcopal home games. He's also gaining recruiting interest from major programs around the country.
T-Town Showdown: The Tulsa area has plenty of top prospects going head-to-head Friday night — especially with Owasso at Jenks and Tulsa Union at Broken Arrow — but here's a matchup that might be flying under the radar: Tulsa Central at Tulsa McLain.
McLain's Nigel Carter, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound WR/DB rated No. 28 on the Super 30, is a special athlete, and Central is led by speedy RB D'Angelo Brewer, who has been on the edge of cracking the list since his strong showings on the summer camp circuit. Both players are verbally committed to Tulsa.
