Catholic High Lineman Enjoys Junior Day

Catholic High football in Baton Rouge has a long history of producing college offensive linemen. The Bear's have another big lineman in 2009 that is attracting interest to campus during the spring.

Tyler Duvall continues the tradition of Catholic High producing big offensive linemen for college football programs. The "6-3", 305-pound lineman is the latest athlete from the Bears program that has garnered attention from schools like Mississippi State and Louisiana. Duvall recently attended the Cajun's spring game on April 4th and spoke about his visit to Louisiana.

"I really liked the football field and facilities," Tyler stated. "We had the chance to look around with Cajun Recruiting Coordinator Troy Wingerter and the current direction of the program. He also told me that they will get out and visit school during spring football."

Tyler also had the opportunity to talk to offensive line coach Ron Hudson about football and summer camps.

"We really like Coach Hudson," said Duvall. "He told us not to get caught up in the numbers at summer camps and combines. Coach Hudson tried to encourage us and spoke to us about playing well on Friday nights. His message to us was playing well on field is more important then forty times and shuttle runs."

Duvall is also excited to hear from new Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen and his staff.

"I'm pretty excited about going up to Starkville and attending the spring game later this month," Tyler stated. "I know Coach Mullen comes from the Florida Gator program and ran a great offensive down in Gainesville."

Tyler Duvall is not sure of a major on college, but does like the idea teaching and coaching.

"I really haven't made up my mind on a major, but teaching is something I would be interested in," Tyler stated. "Of course I would also like to stay involved with football and coach as well."
