Brossette's Ballin'

University Lab is headed to the Division II state finals in two weeks vs. nationally-ranked John Curtis Christian. Read on as University 2015 RB Nicholas Brossette, a top-rated LSU commit, talks about his 242-yard rushing performance last night in the semis vs. Parkview Baptist, in addition to his thoughts on LSU's strong end to the regular season...

Even though Nicholas Brossette dominated Parkview Baptist Saturday night, he was quick to credit his teammates.

"Everybody played good," Louisiana's top-ranked junior said, 24 hours after his team put almost 60 points on the board in the semis.

"It feels good to make it to the state finals - not just for me but for the school, community and alumni."

The Cubs now get two weeks to prepare for John Curtis.

"The coaches said to enjoy the big win last night," he said, "and after that it's time to go back to work.

"John Curtis has a real good program. They make very few mistakes. We have to come out with intensity when we play them."

Brossette is one of three LSU commits (along with Garrett Brumfield and Dylan Moses) on the U-High roster.

"Dylan isn't playing like a freshman," he noted. "He's playing like a senior. He and Garrett are playing extremely good football. Garrett's been making big blocks for me, and Tre Jackson and Malik Antoine have also played well.

"We (LSU) had a good game, shutting down Johnny Football with the defense, and we ran the ball well (vs. Texas A&M). The future is bright for LSU. Everybody is stepping up with true freshmen contributing. Before I committed, I noticed that LSU's coaches trust the young guys by how they play freshmen."

Brossette found the end zone four times in undefeated U-High's 58-23 win over cross-town rival Parkview.
