'13 Intro: St. James ATH Shaquille Narcisse

Shaquille Narcisse does everything for the St. James Wildcats, and you can learn more about the promising sophomore right here.

"I played safety for the first two games last year, and then the coaches moved me to quarterback once district began," said Shaquille Narcisse (6-1, 165, 4.49). "I played quarterback, wide receiver, and safety. I think my future in college lies at wide receiver or safety.

"I threw for over 700 yards last season and scored 12 touchdowns. I also had around 300 rushing yards. On defense, I had 21 tackles, an interception, a sack, and three tackles for loss."

How does Narcisse describe his game?

"I'm a playmaker," he said. "I like having the ball in my hands. I completed 9-of-13 passes for 230 yards in one of our games. I think (LSU signee) Alonzo Lewis caught seven of those passes."

What's the outlook for St. James in 2011? The Wildcats will have a new (yet to determined) head coach.

"There's talk that we'll switch from the Wing-T to the Pistol," said Narcisse. "That would be somewhat shocking and maybe a little more difficult at first (the Wildcats have utilized the Wing-T for many years).

"If our running back, Kenneth Armant, stays healthy, then we can reach the Dome this (upcoming) season. He got hurt in the second quarter of our playoff game vs. Loranger, and the team seemed to lose its spirit after that (St. James lost, 24-23).

"We return nine starters on offense, so that will be good."

Narcisse, whose cousin (Juarelle Narcisse) is a standout linebacker at McNeese State, favors LSU, Miami, TCU, West Virginia, Oregon, and Arizona.
