Alcoa (TN) High School quarterback has turned his attention from visiting schools to helping his team defend their state crown of a year ago and he told Inside The Ville that three schools lead for his services.

Alcoa (TN) High School quarterback Joei Fiegler had a busy spring and early summer, attending camps at Louisville, North Carolina, NC State and Southern Miss, but the 6-foot-3, 195-pound lefty has now turned his focus on preparing to defend his school's Class 2A State Championship of a year ago.

"We are all out here working hard to get to try and defend our state title," Fiegler said. "We have a good shot at doing it. We only lost two starters from last year."

As a junior Fiegler threw for 2,418 yards and 28 touchdowns and his numbers could surpass that this year as his favorite targets also return.

"My number one is back," he said. "In fact, we didn't lose anyone from offense. We averaged somewhere between 40 and 45 points a game last year, so we should be pretty good again this year."

On August 19th, he will guide his high-powered Alcoa offense against the always dangerous Hopkinsville High School squad in the Integra Bowl at Trigg County High School.

"I watched them some at Louisville's camp, but I don't know to much about them," he said. "They are usually good and I know that their quarterback from last year went to Kentucky."

As Fiegler does turn his attention to his senior campaign, three schools have risen to the top of his list.

"Louisville, North Carolina and Southern Miss are probably my favorites," said Fiegler, who currently holds a scholarship offer from Vanderbilt.

"I stay in constant contact with Louisville," he continued. "I talk to Coach Levine once or twice a week. I also talk to North Carolina and Southern Miss a lot and I talked to a coach from Indiana just the other day."

Fiegler, who turned in a strong performance at U of L's QB/WR camp in early June, says that while he has yet to receive a scholarship offer from the Cardinals, that one could come his way at any time.

"They have been real honest with me," he said of the U of L coaching staff. "They told me that they have offered a couple quarterbacks ahead of me and that they are the one's that have offers from just about everyone, so I'm just waiting to see what happens."

While he says that he will continue to keep in contact with a number of coaches, he admits that recruiting is moving down his list of priorities for the moment.

"We really want to repeat, so that's what I'm focusing on," he said. "If I have a good season then the recruiting will take care of itself."
