Camp Quick Hitter: Kenneth Armant

St. James RB Kenneth Armant participated in Louisiana Tech's satellite camp in New Orleans Thursday...

"I tweaked my hamstring, but I still ran a 4.42 in the 40-yard dash with a 4.13 shuttle," said Kenneth Armant. "I also had a 35-inch vertical.

"Coach (Sonny) Dykes said I did a good job. He asked if I was interested in Louisiana Tech and told me to come visit the campus. The running backs coach (Pierre Ingram) said they would be glad to have me visit the school.

"It was a nice camp. I learned a lot just from watching (Armant was sidelined from drills due to his hamstring)."

Did any other prospects impress Armant with their performance at the camp?

"Shaquille Narcisse was asked to stay afterward by the coaches," answered Armant. "They wanted to teach more things to some of the players.

"He's (Narcisse) going to play both quarterback and wide receiver for us this year. We have a new head coach (James Bell), but we still have the same offensive we might stick with the Wing-T on offense.

"John Curtis had an elusive, quick receiver at the camp, and Patterson quarterback Justice Jones did well."

Armant rushed for 716 yards on 74 carries last year and also did considerable damage as a kick returner (and occasional receiver).
