Dobard Lists Top Four

Edna Karr (Algiers, La.) earned a hard-fought road victory over St. Thomas More in the 4A quarters last Friday, and the Cougars relied on the sure hands of '13 TE Standish Dobard (10 receptions, 110 yards) to move the chains. Read further to get Dobard's top four college choices and his thoughts on the postseason.

"I like LSU, Miami, Alabama and Texas," said Standish Dobard, who has a teammate -- three-star offensive tackle Derek Edinburgh -- that is committed to LSU. "I got hurt early in the game last week but still did good.

"In practice, the coaches decided that we were going to use the same play (pass to Dobard) until they stopped it."

Although Dobard was obviously pleased with his team's quarterfinal win, there is unfinished business at hand for Karr.

"We're in the same position as last year," explained Dobard, who was part of the Cougars' 2010 state runner-up squad. "We know what it takes to get to the finals, so we weren't emotional after the game Friday."

Karr has a bevy of playmakers on offense, including QB Devante Noil, WR Jarrell Bennett, WR Terrance Howard, RB/WR Rasheed Davis and Dobard.

"Bennett is the man," said Dobard of the senior Arizona commit who hauled in six catches for 138 yards and a TD. "Devante is a perfect quarterback. Nothing goes wrong when he's back there so there's nothing to worry about. We knew he was going to come through. He's like a 'Tonka Part II' (referring to last year's starting QB, Tollete 'Tonka' George)."

This week, Karr (10-3) entertains visiting Lutcher (12-1) on the West Bank of New Orleans in the semis.

"We love playing at home," said Dobard.

Dobard splits out at WR in addition to his duties at TE. He and the aforementioned Edinburgh make quite a tandem when they line up on the same side; Edinburgh is a 6-foot-7, 335-pound left tackle.
