SES Elite 10: Willie Gay
For ball carriers across the state of Mississippi there is no escaping Starkville's Willie Gay. The 6-2, 215-pounder covers sideline to sideline better than anyone in the state. He also is a force when blitzing up the middle or off of the edge. His ferocious defense makes him a clear choice for the 2016 SES Elite 10.
Gay totaled 84 tackles in 2016 along with six sacks and four interceptions. His solid play helped his Jackets climb all the way to becoming the 6A State Champions.
With one season remaining in his high school career, Gay is considered one of the top defenders not only in the state but also the country. With a trophy to defend, expect Gay to play harder than ever before in an attempt to get his team back to back titles.
*The next member of the 2016 SES Elite will be announced Monday, June 13 at 10:00AM.
