Dural Staying Busy

Scout.com checks in with Breaux Bridge WR Travin Dural, who is committed to the LSU Tigers.

Breaux Bridge reached the Class 4A semifinals in 2011 and when the Tigers needed a big play, they frequently called Travin Dural's number.

"Last night at the All-Acadiana banquet, they announced that I had 42 catches for 942 yards and 25 touchdowns," said Dural. "I probably averaged close to 20 yards a carry. I was first-team all-district wide receiver and return specialist."

Dural will take his official visit to LSU next month.

"It's in January. They told my mom and I the date, but I can't remember," said Dural. "I'm just looking forward to seeing how college life is, how the coaches react to my family, and getting a feel for the environment."

Breaux Bridge started the year 0-5 in hoops, but the Tigers are 1-1 since the influx of Dural and the other football players.

"I'm averaging 16 points per game," said the 6-foot-2 senior. "I played against (fellow LSU commit) Jerald Hawkins (West St. Mary) the other night. We talked a little bit. I met his parents; they're good people."

Dural and the Tigers are the defending track and field state champions and are heavily-favored to repeat.

"We return everybody except Quentin Thomas (now at LSU)," he said. "Last year, I made it to state in the 4 X 200, 200, long jump and high jump. We were first in the 4 X 200 and I got first in the high jump. I finished second in the 200 and third in the long jump.

"My goals this season are to run a 20.0 in the 200 and clear 7-0 in the high jump. Last year, I ran in the low 21-range in the 200 and jumped 6-11."

On the gridiron, Dural and his teammates posted a 12-2 mark in 2011. The Tigers boasted a trio of LSU commits, including LB Lamar Louis and WR Kavahra Holmes. Louis is a mid-year grad and early enrollee.
