GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Judging by his game on Friday night you would never know that four-star linebacker James Hearns (Tallahassee, Fla./Lincoln) is coming off a severe ACL injury from last season.
The 6-foot-3, 226-pound inside linebacker accounted for two interceptions, including one he returned for a 48-yard touchdown in Lincoln's 45-7 victory over Gainesville (Fla.) Buchholz. Hearns actually had a third interception negated by a penalty early in the game.
Though he appeared to be the most dominant player on the field Friday night, Hearns says there are parts of his game he still needs to improve on.

Thursday wasn’t your typical night of high school football as two Ohio State commits were in action.
Darron Lee (New Albany, Ohio/New Albany) showed how valuable he will be to the Buckeyes in a span of 151 seconds when he scored on a 1-yard sneak, intercepted a tipped pass, and scored again on a 32-yard keeper in the second half to lift his team over Olentangy 33-14. The loss was Olentangy’s first of the season as Lee had New Albany ahead 33-0 at one point.
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The rebuilding of the Ohio State passing attack won't include Ricquan Southward. The true freshman wide receiver has voluntarily left the program due to personal reasons, the school confirmed on Friday.
Southward was a part of new coach Urban Meyer's first signing class with the program at a position the Buckeyes have tried to quickly re-energize after finishing last season with one of the worst passing attacks in the country. While the veterans Meyer inherited have given Ohio State a boost throwing the football, Southward hasn't been a factor at the position since arriving on campus and now won't be an option for it moving forward.
Southward was a four-star recruit out of Lakeland, Fla., ranked by ESPN as the No. 41 wide receiver in the country a year ago.
Wood scheduled for surgery: Reserve defensive back Jamie Wood is scheduled for an MRI and surgery on his shoulder in the coming weeks, and the procedure will end his season.
