Sophomore getting interest from colleges

Published: Wednesday, September 25, 2013 at 15:46 PM.

Akenno Godette returned a fumble for a touchdown, and Joyner tackled Northside runner Autray Taylor behind the line of scrimmage, forcing a fumble that teammate Andrew Ramirez recovered.

“All I tried to do was get to him,” said Joyner, who fought through a block to hit Taylor from behind. “Next thing you know, I just saw the ball pop out.”

Havelock’s defense has given up just three offensive touchdowns in five games and posted shutouts of Jones Senior and Kinston. Joyner said there is no secret to the success.

“It’s coming together as a team and doing your job,” he said.

As for all the college recruiting attention — Joyner is No. 97 on the Fox Sports Ultimate 300 recruiting list — he’s not looking too closely at it.

 “I just try to take it day by day,” he said. “I’m just focused on school.”

Bryant said it’s no wonder that colleges are after the sophomore.
