    HUNTSVILLE, Al. - When Sonja Braxton brought her son, Alabama A&M defensive tackle Frank Kearse, to school four years ago, she took his house keys when she left. Kearse told his mother he loved football and planned to go pro. He had escaped the traps back home in Savannah, Ga., [- his mom and dad both worked two jobs to make sure he had everything he needed [- and Braxton didn't want anything to distract him from reaching his goal.

    If Kearse keeps playing the way he's played through A&M's first three games, he probably won't go back. The 6-foot-5, 295-pounder has garnered attention from virtually every team in the National Football League. According to Cedric Pearl, A&M's offensive coordinator and the team's NFL liaison, more than half of the 32 teams have been in to see Kearse. In fact, scouts from the Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens were in town Thursday.
