All-State Holy Cross S likes Louisiana Tech

Brenton Bowman has three scholarship offers, but there's one school in particular that he wants to hear from: Louisiana Tech.

"I don't know what's happening with Louisiana Tech, but I wish they'd come through (and offer me)," said Holy Cross LB/SS Brenton Bowman. "They've never said anything or contacted me, and I'd like to play up there.

"I wish they'd get at me, because I'm the same size as (current Tech safety) Chad Boyd, and I'd like to learn under him. With him mentoring me, it would be a good look."

Holy Cross lost its first two games of the year to Class 5A playoff teams Slidell and Jesuit, before reeling off nine straight wins. In the playoffs, the Class 3A Tigers won their first-round game against North Vermilion (with Bowman recording 24 stops). Eventual semifinalist West Feliciana eliminated Holy Cross in the second-round.

Bowman, the heart and soul of the Holy Cross defense, has received numerous honors after his terrific senior campaign.

"I balled out - I'm going to be honest," he stated. "I was District MVP on defense and first-team all-state. I had 153 tackles; 91 solo.

"I was doing it all. I returned two punts and two kicks for touchdowns, and I picked off two passes and deflected seven passes. I didn't have as many interceptions because I played a lot of linebacker. That's where the team needed me, and I was all over the field. I also had 10 sacks."

Bowman reports offers from Nicholls State, Richmond, and South Alabama.

"I'd going to visit Nicholls on January 28th, and I've already been to South Alabama and Richmond," he said. "I had an early offer from Mississippi State, but they backed off a couple of months ago."

With the MSU Bulldogs having backed off, Bowman hopes that the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs will move in.
