Scouting: Terrebonne was in Houma, La. last Friday to see undefeated Terrebonne take on Central Lafourche. The Tigers won the game 49-14, moving them to 7-0 as they stake their claim as one of the top teams in 5A. Go inside for a breakdown of Terrebonne's prospects.

HOUMA, La. --- Terrebonne rolled out to a 3-0 start last season, but head coach Gary Hill saw his team stumble down the stretch, beginning with a blowout loss at Thibodaux and a close call at home against South Lafourche.

Of their three wins in the second half of the season, the victory over Central Lafourche was the closest – a 21-17 final that saw Terrebonne score the game’s final touchdown in the third quarter.

Now Hill and his staff are writing a different story.

The Tigers started 3-0 once again, and once again their fourth game was against cross-town rival Thibodaux. This time, Terrebonne dominated from start-to-finish to get the 29-14 win.

Just like 2009, South Lafourche followed. And again, Terrebonne found redemption, this time by way of a 34-25 win. Victories over Assumption (22-16) and Central Lafourche followed.

Last Friday was in Houma for the win over the Trojans, and here are some names to keep an eye on:

2011 QB Mike Williams

QB - Mike Williams - No. 1: If there’s a senior prospect that nobody is talking about, it’s Mike Williams. He did not camp with any schools this summer due to a shoulder injury, but from what I have seen I think he would have been on LSU offensive coordinator Gary Crowton’s radar. He’s a legit 6-foot-3, 205, and he’s got speed and vision to boot. Central Lafourche had no answer for him, and Williams finished the night 9-of-10 passing for 167 yards and three touchdowns before being relegated to sideline watching midway through the third quarter. The thing I was really impressed with was his patience in the pocket. You can tell he has put a lot of work into molding his game into something more than just a running threat, and his arm is pretty accurate now that he’s spent that extra time working on his development. One touchdown throw he made on a roll out to the right was one of the most athletic plays I’ve seen all season. I haven’t seen a quarterback yet this year that – as a senior – has the mixture of tools that Williams possesses. This one’s a lock for All-District and All–Area.

WR - Justin Williams – No. 4: Just when you thought Mike Williams was the name to watch, get a look at his younger brother: 6-foot-2, 210-pound sophomore wide receiver Justin Williams. This kid is playing beyond his age, running clean routes and using his hands to catch everything thrown his way. After he gets the ball in his hands, he’s a load for defensive backs to bring down. He leads the district in receiving yards and touchdowns, adding six catches for 109 yards and two scores on Friday night. Just like his brother, Justin is a lock for All-District. In terms of what he can improve on, blocking would be the biggest thing. Of course, the sophomore is still a pup. Case in point, he took one play off and allowed the cornerback to come up and make a tackle, then the next snap he blows his defender back and springs a big run to the outside. Certainly that consistency will come with age. A side note, Williams is also a big-time baseball prospect that bats left handed, throws right and is a power threat at the plate. This is a name to keep your eye on over the next three years.

2011 DB Pat Ward

DB – Pat Ward – No. 10: I first came across Pat Ward when he shut down Newman wide receiver and four-star prospect Odell Beckham in a 7-on-7 in New Orleans over the summer. A few months later, Ward is proving that his performance that day wasn’t an aberration. Ward has picked off five passes in seven games, not shabby numbers considered he plays in a Cover 3 scheme. On Friday, he snagged a second-half interception that he nearly returned for a touchdown. He’s a legit 6-foot, 185-pounds and has 4.4 speed, the fastest player on either side of the ball for the Tigers. Grades are an issue, but I couldn’t see any Junior College passing on Ward’s abilities.

ATH- Kirby Bonvillain – No. 2: When you want to talk utility men, start with Bonvillain. The senior is on the smaller side at 5-10, 180-pounds, but his athleticism allows him to play both ways. Defensively he’s a super-aggressive safety, and I saw him lead with the shoulders and deliver a number of nice hits on Friday. He’s someone Frank Wilson at LSU had his eye on last season, and his development so far this year has been good. Against Central Lafourche, Bonvillain caught the ball three times for 76 yards and was in on six tackles.

2013 RB DeShaun Diggs

RB - DeShaun Diggs – No. 25: For a freshman, Diggs still has some things to iron out. His elusiveness as a runner is evident, but there are questions with his vision – expected from a tailback getting his first varsity touches. He can jump out of the gym when you put a basketball in his hands, and the Terrebonne coaches feel that has translated nicely onto the gridiron. If he catches the sidelines, not many people are going to reel Diggs in. He carried the team to a late-win over Assumption two weekends ago, while last Friday he had seven carries for 87 yards and a touchdown. Diggs can play college ball, but he only has two more years of athletic eligibility because of his age. One route is finishing his coursework and graduating a year early so he won’t be ruled ineligible for his senior season.

2013 DT William Moses

DT – William Moses – No. 52: Moses put himself on the map when Terrebonne met with Thibodaux. Matched with four-star senior offensive tackle Greg Robinson, Moses won the night – and the Tigers won the game. At 6-foot-1, 235-pounds, Moses – only a sophomore – has plenty of time to grow into his frame. He’s on the shorter side for a tackle, but the staff has him lined up as more of a 3-4 end. When he gets after it, not many offensive linemen can stop “Big Will.” He’s close to double-digits in tackles for losses and sacks. Perhaps more impressive, he has recorded a pair of interceptions – both coming off attempted screen passes.

K – Ryan Domangue – No. 16: With all the touchdowns Terrebonne put up on Friday, Domangue stayed busy. The junior was 7-for-7 on extra points (staying perfect on the year), and his seven kickoffs went for 418 yards – five of which were recorded as touchbacks after Domangue booted the ball out of the back of the endzone. In high school football field position is everything, and Domangue (5-9, 178) is one who will always force the opponent to go 80 yards if they want seven.
