      Rich's Take

      As we said in the preview, it's been 11 years since Latta had a winning season. All arrows point to that streak being broken in 2013. There's so much attention on Donell Stanley, and rightfully so, but there are more pieces to this team starting with running back RJ McClam. I think coach Kelly Williamson has the foundation in place and Vikings fans will see the payoff this season. Look for the coach's son, Kel Williamson to play a key role on both sides of the ball. The Vikings open the season with three of its first four games on the road including tough tests against 2A Dillon and Aynor. Once they get through that, they'll be in a position to build some wins.

      Worth Another Watch

      Everyone knows the Donell Stanley story. The most high profile athlete from Latta since Raymond Felton, the most important thing you need to know is that the attention and hoopla has not changed this gentle giant one bit. He's always stayed humble, polite and appreciative of the process. Click HERE to see the latest on Donell's recruiting. He plans on going to the Gamecocks opener against North Carolina followed by the Georgia/Clemson showdown two days later. He'll make one more campus visit to Chapel Hill and could make a decision in the middle of his senior campaign.
