Hazlehurst, Miss., defensive end Jazzmen Guy says his hero is Superman. It's a fitting hero for a player that's built like the Man of Steel.
Guy, ranked as the nation's No. 8 strongside defensive end and No. 3 player in Mississippi, is a dominating force that has a 450-pound squat and a 310-pound bench press. While he might not be able to leap over tall buildings, the 6-foot-5, 265-pounder is still one of the top prospects in the nation.
Five facts about Jazzmen Guy
• His hobbies: Ride in his car, playing football and chilling with his girlfriend.
• Plans to major in business management.
• His favorite video game: Madden 2007.
• Would like to wear jersey No. 17 in the game.

It's only fitting that Superman has been selected by Rivals.com to play in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl. The game on Jan. 4 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., will be broadcast live on ESPNU.
"When I got the invitation, it didn't take me long to think about this," Guy, a longtime Mississippi State commitment, said. "It's a great opportunity to prove myself and see where I stack up against the other great players in the country."
Guy said fans will get a good chance to see a strong defender with explosive ability to get after the quarterback.
"I want to make an impact," Guy said. "I want to get after that quarterback and get a few sacks. It should be a rewarding experience no matter what happens in the game. I just want to play hard and do my best to make an impact all week during practice and in the game."
Guy says he's still a solid Mississippi State commitment, despite listing Florida State, Miami, Mississippi State, South Carolina and North Carolina in order on his game questionnaire.
"I am going to Mississippi State on Jan. 20," Guy told BulldogBlitz.com. "I am going to go there. I am firm in my commitment. I mean, I gave them my word. I just like them and their team and their school."
