The ULM Warhawks celebrated a big 48-35 victory Saturday afternoon and did so with quite a few prospects looking on.
The defensive line is the biggest position need for the Warhawks as they base out of a 3-3-5 set but are thin in that department. Among the DL that attended the game include Junction City's Byran Jones, and Sterlington's LaQuinton Allen. Jones holds an official offer from ULM as well as Arkansas, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Auburn and Baylor.
Jones teammate Alan Turner (5'11 190) has been tearing it up for Junction City as well and made the trip down. Turner doesn't hold any offers to date but is looking to change that with his continued solid play. Alan recently posted a three touchdown game for the Dragons and intercepted a pass on defense.
With all these offers on the table, how does Byron keep a level head? "It's tough sometimes but I just keep my focus on our football team and getting back to our winning ways", said Jones. Junction City dropped a close 14-12 game last Friday night to Bearden on a failed 2pt conversion attempt at the end of the game.
From Pace high school in Florida, defensive back David Casey is a name to keep an eye on. Casey made the trip to ULM and could be a potential offer for the Warhawks. Casey scored three touchdowns and rushed for a career high 234 yards in Pace's loss to Niceville Friday night.
Besides Sterlington's Allen, there were also several local prospects that were on hand. Ouachita defensive back Rashaun Davis, and tall wide receiver Timothy McNeal. Through 5 games McNeal has 9 catches for 221 yards and has scored 3 touchdowns.
Carroll's dynamic quarterback Xavier Gray was also a spectator. Gray has already throw for 400 yards and 8 touchdowns while adding 170 rush yards and two more scores. A sleeper could be St Fredrick's DE/TE Aaron Thibodeaux. The senior has two touchdown receptions out of the run happy Warrior offense.
