Believe it or not, the first three passes that former Westover and St. Thomas Aquinas star receiver Rashad Greene caught during his redshirt freshman year at Florida State all went for touchdowns. It was just that kind of season for the Albany native, who left his hometown after his sophomore year to live with his grandmother in Fort Lauderdale and play for St. Thomas, a national prep football powerhouse that competes for state and national titles every season. The decision to gain more exposure certainly paid off as Greene earned a scholarship to FSU, where he led the Seminoles in receiving this past season, despite missing four games due to injury.

Rashad Greene never wanted to leave home — but he knew that a bigger, brighter world of football awaited him outside of Albany. And after taking his talents to national powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas and eventually Florida State, three years later, he’s now right where he hoped — and everyone back home in Southwest Georgia expected him -— to be: one of the fastest rising stars in the nation.
