Vinson packing his bags

Wednesday night, the speedy Brent Vinson admitted he was moving faster than ever cleaning his room and packing his belongings to depart Hargrave Military Prep School for a quick stopover in his hometown of Hampton, Virginia then it's on to Tennessee this weekend.

For Vinson, the journey from high school to Tennessee, with a stop in prep school, was a bit difficult, but necessary.

"I am so happy and so relieved to have everything done that I can go there," Vinson said. "The last year has been tough. Coming from the environment that I have grew up in, Hargrave was hard.
