'13 Intro: CCMC ATH Joshua Singleton

It's no secret that Central Catholic-Morgan City is among the frontrunners for the Class A state title. The Eagles are led by RB/LB/S Lloyd Grogan, who holds a Louisiana Tech offer, and QB/DB Joshua Singleton. Read further to learn more about Singleton, who accounted for 33 TDs last year.

Last season, Central Catholic reached the Class A quarterfinals before running into an unbeaten and senior-laden Oberlin squad. This fall, the Eagles are set to contend for the state title, thanks to a bevy of returning starters such as QB/DB Joshua Singleton.

"Last year, I began the year at slot receiver on offense and Lloyd Grogan was our starting quarterback," said Singleton. "Lloyd slipped up and I got a chance at QB. I never looked back.

"I threw for 1,300 yards and 21 TDs and ran for 662 yards with 12 TDs. I also had a pick-six, 15 or 16 passes broken up, and 25 to 30 tackles."

Grogan, the team's star senior player, has drawn flocks of college coaches to Morgan City for spring training and Singleton took advantage of that opportunity to impress the recruiters.

"Pittsburgh was down here looking at Lloyd," said Singleton. "He's a big recruit for them (the Panthers have offered Grogan). I think they want to recruit me next year.

"Louisiana Tech, Texas A&M and Vanderbilt were other schools who I think noticed me."

Singleton is an all-around athlete, having earned Second-Team All-District honors for CCMC's powerhouse basketball team. As a sophomore, Singleton averaged 11 points per game and "seven or eight" assists on the hardwood.

In baseball, he batted .345 and manned center field for the Eagles, who reached the second round of the playoffs.

The future is bright at Central Catholic, according to Singleton.

"I won't be surprised if we win the state championship in all three sports (football, basketball, baseball) next year," he said.
