Louisiana Football Editor and Owner Lee Brecheen has scouted all of these guys from the 2013 season all the way to now. Lee has seen these guys in person whether it was in games or in team practices. The opinions about these players below are only from Lee Brecheen not from any other recruiting site.
West Feliciana LB Hunter Smith is one of the best linebacking prospects in the state. He is a guy that the coaches love and can lean on to lead a team. Smith is the quarterback and the anchor of a pretty good defense coming back. Hunter Smith is one of those hard-working tough guys that leads by example.
There are a lot of great football players that play for powerhouse programs like West Monroe, John Curtis, Rummel, etc. and sometimes they get recruited highly because of the big teams they play for. Those high profile players only have to play one position for their school as well, There are also diamonds in the rough when you are looking at high school recruits that come from small schools but those players are just as good as the kids that play for the bigger schools and they also have to start on both sides of the football.
Central Lafourche running back Nelton Allen is one of the best running backs in the Houma region according to Louisiana Football Editor Lee Brecheen.
Today’s article is on another Woodlawn (Baton Rouge) star player ,but this time, it is not on a skill guy. We are talking about DT Aaron White. White is one of those guys that you don’t recruit him because of a 40 yard time or how much he bench presses because when the lights are on and it’s time to play football, he shows up and plays his heart out.
Pineville RB/FB Landon King must be the biggest running back in the state of Louisiana. King is 6’1 at 220 lbs so there is no surprise that he is the bell cow in Pineville’s offense.
When you look at all of the great running backs in Louisiana, you look at Clyde Edwards-Helaire from Catholic High School (Baton Rouge), Bruce Jordan-Swilling (Brother Martin), etc. There is also another running back in the Baton Rouge area who is very underrated and is overlooked by many in terms as one of the best running backs in the state and his name is Javin Myers from Woodlawn High School in Baton Rouge who is originally from the state of Georgia.
Ethan Stansell from Loyola College Prep does a little bit of everything for the Flyers. For the team, he lines up at running back, tight end, and linebacker.
A couple of articles ago, I wrote an article on one of the best cornerbacks in the New Orleans area in St. Augustine CB Jeremiah West according to Lee Brecheen. Today, I am writing an article on the other great cornerback in the New Orleans area McDonogh 35’s Kevin Berthey who Louisiana Football Magazine’s Lee Brecheen thinks is just as good as Jeremiah West.
Union Parish Wide Receiver Ni’Jeel Meeking is another great receiver in a very deep receiver class this year. He is a big target at 6’3, 200 lbs and can run a 4.47 in the 40. Meeking has all the physical tools that you can ask for in order to be a great receiver.
