Recruit Video Interview: Air Force FB Commit CJ Thibodeaux, Notre Dame High School

by Jace LeJeune

We have finished our 23rd annual magazine cover shoot, but this year marked the third straight year in which we have conducted both a North and South photo shoot. This year, we shot the North photo shoot at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches and we shot the South photo shoot at Catholic High School in Baton Rouge. Both events were really successful, and we would like to thank everybody who has helped us make both events so special for the players that were involved. Besides taking the photos, Louisiana Football Magazine’s owner Lee Brecheen and editor Jace LeJeune got the chance to talk to some of the top Class of 2020 players in the state of the Louisiana. Both Brecheen and LeJeune talked to the recruits about their top schools, goals for the upcoming season, hobbies, and so much more. For the next couple of months, we will post these video interviews that were taken at both photoshoot events.

In today’s recruit interview, we go to Catholic High School where Lee Brecheen caught up with Notre Dame High School senior fullback and Air Force commit CJ Thibodeaux!

CJ Thibodeaux: Hall of Fame Coach Lewis Cook has led the Notre Dame Pioneers to four state championships. A lot of this championship program’s success has come because of great players like CJ Thibodeaux. Entering the 2020 season, Thibodeaux was highly regarded as one of the best players at his position in the state if not the best. At 6-0, 225 pounds, Thibodeaux has freakish ability as he can run a 4.55/40 and at the same time, can squat over 540 pounds and deadlift close to 700 pounds. The Notre Dame High School senior is not only versatile in the weight room, but also on the football field as well. After rushing for 855 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior, Thibodeaux built on a strong junior campaign with an even stronger senior season rushing for 1,070 yards and 12 more touchdowns. Thibodeaux’s intangibles gained the attention of some DI programs including the Air Force Academy in which he has committed to play football. Louisiana Football Magazine’s recruiting expert Lee Brecheen loves what he sees in the Air Force commit as he has put Thibodeaux on the cover of the South Magazine and on the first team All-South Louisiana team before the start of the season. Now, with Signing Day coming along the corner, the Falcons could be getting themselves a great addition from the state of Louisiana.
