Herculean effort for Bourque

Davante' Bourque continued to amaze last weekend, rushing for 360 yards and 6 touchdowns in Crowley's 55-54 shootout loss to Westlake. Scout.com gets the details from the stud running back.

It's becoming difficult to conjure up different phrases to accurately describe the play of Crowley RB Davante' Bourque.

Bourque has gotten the job done all year for the 5-3 Gents and he continues to elevate his game - rushing for 360 yards and 6 TDs last week - as the regular season comes to its conclusion.

That jaw-dropping performance gave the 6-foot-2, 200-pound junior almost 1,500 yards rushing this fall with 24 TDs.

"It was a bad feeling, losing by one point," Bourque said in reference to Crowley's 55-54 loss to District 4-3A foe Westlake last Friday. "We were down, 41-20, at the half, but we were able to make a comeback.

"While it felt good to have those numbers, at the same time it didn't feel too good since we lost."

Bourque said that he achieved the most success vs. Westlake on "stretches to the left" and "a few whams."

Crowley is current 5-3 overall, 2-1 in district competition. Eunice (3-5, 2-1) is next on the Gents' agenda.

"Eunice looks like a good team that is well-coached," said Bourque.

Bourque is receiving mail from numerous schools, with Tulsa and Vanderbilt recently joining the list of programs that are expressing interest.

Some colleges are recruiting Bourque as a wide receiver; others see him at running back.

"I can play wide receiver," he said. "I can't be mad at schools that want me to play that position, because that's the position where I started off my high school career.

"I would like the chance to play running back though."
