Semien's Time to Shine

Lutcher junior WR Dorian Semien has been tutored by the best, having played a year behind five-star wideout Jarvis Landry. Semien recently won the WR MVP at the Baton Rouge National Underclassmen Combine, and you can find out more about this exciting prospect right here.

"I won the wide receiver MVP for the second straight year at the NUC," said Dorian Semien. "I didn't even run the 40-yard dash at the combine, because my hamstring was bothering me. If you don't run the 40, you pretty much have to dominate in the one-on-one drills to get MVP and that's what I did.

"I work hard to make up for not being as tall as some other receivers (Semien is 5-foot-8). Working with Jarvis Landry is the best thing that ever happened to me, because you're learning from the best there. I spend a lot of time working on route-running and making sure I have great hands."

Semien is getting early interest from Missouri and Tulane, and he favors the Tigers, as well as Southern Miss, Tulsa, and Houston.

"I really like Southern Miss," said Semien. "I like the way they spread the ball around. They always use more than three receivers in their offense."

Lutcher is hungry after getting upset in the second round of the Class 4A playoffs last year by Teurlings Catholic. The Bulldogs have plenty of talent returning at the skill positions and secondary, including three-star RB/WR Daniel Taylor, CB Jordan Batiste (Memphis offer), and DB Kyron Jackson.

"It was easy going to these camps and doing well after facing Jordan and Kyron in practice every day," said Semien. "Jordan has better feet, while Kyron is more physical.

"We're going to be stronger as a team next season. The only leader we had last year was Jarvis, and we're going to do things differently this time around."
