Most high school football athletes dream of scoring the winning touchdown in the last minutes of a game, winning a state championship, being named all-state and play with some of the top athletes in the state in a all-star game. As a senior, Many High athlete Xavier Dias has experienced all of the above on his way to a dream season. The Cajun Redzone recently caught up with the UL commitment and spoke to him about his senior season and recruiting plans.
“Winning a state championship was a dream come true for me,” Xavier stated. “Defeating Kinder was tough; they had a really good team. Our school has never won a state championship and to be part of that first state championship team is something I’m always going to remember and look back upon the rest of my life.”
The honors rolled in for Xavier Dias after his state championship game, being named First Team All-District 3-2A Defensive MVP and 2A All-State. Dias finished his dream season with 72 tackles, six interceptions and six forced fumbles. Xavier also led his offense from the quarterback position on the other side of the football.
“It was great to be recognized for all the hard worked that I put in, but it was all about winning a district title and state championship,” Dias said. “It all started with spring football and the off-season programs. I spent the summer grinding hard in football camps and it all paid off for a tremendous season.”
Xavier Dais’s hard work and senior season landed him a spot on the LHSCA West All-Star team, with the game played in Shreveport, La. Dias talked about his all-star game experience.
“It was an honor to be chosen to play in all-star game with a lot of good players,” Xavier mentioned. “I received some good coaching during the week from the staff and met some of the guys I know; it was great. It was a great experience and a chance to face some of the best players in the state.”
While Xavier Dias is committed to the Ragin’ Cajuns, he will take his official visits in January. Right now, he has three visits set and make take another.
“Right now I plan on visiting Southern Miss, then UL and ULM,” Dias stated. Southern Miss told me I’m their number one safety on their board, so I’m going to visit them on January 15th. I will probably come in and talk my official visit to UL afterwards and then ULM. Coach Lovings has kept in contact with me since I committed and we talked all season long. ULM has kept up with me as well and they are telling me I’m their number one target at defensive back. So those are the ones I plan on taking at this point. I’m not sure if I will take another visit, but those are my main three at this time.”
