Devonta "Petey" Walker and Tavarus Eckford play football for Aberdeen High School (Aberdeen, Mississippi).  AOD Vice President Jeff Coggin is their line coach (as well as the school's Air Force Junior ROTC instructor). 

Devonta and Tavarus went to Birmingham, AL July 25-26, 2013 for the Southeastern Line Camp.  College scouts were there (we're hoping college scholarships are in their future).  Devonta and Tavarus received community service grants of $50 each for camp lodging by cleaning up the yard of an elderly gentleman in Aberdeen.

UPDATE:  Petey and Tavarus were recently selected to play in the Mississippi All-Star high school football game in May 2014.  Congratulations!
