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.

Natchitoches Central High School: This past season, the Natchitoches Central High School Chiefs just missed out on the Class 5A playoffs with a 3-7 overall record. Despite missing the playoffs and later losing head coach Byron Keller, there was still a lot of high points for the team. The team had impressive wins over Parkway, Southwood, and Class 2A state championship runner up Many Tigers. Even in some of the team’s losses against playoff teams in C.E. Byrd, Captain Shreve, Haughton, Benton, Lake Charles College Prep, and Airline, the team looked impressive losing all seven games by seven points or less. Despite a tough and daunting schedule, there is still a lot of promise heading into the future with the hiring of longtime C.E. Byrd assistant coach James Wilkerson. A lot of credit should go to this senior class led by RB Rodney Robinson, FB Derrick Payne, QB Derienne Robinson, LB John Waskom, and DE Jalvin Burton as this group has installed a confidence in this athletic program that it could compete with some of the best in the state. Now, the goal is to finish a lot of those close outcomes.
