CoachSpeak: Broussard on Dural

Coach Paul Broussard believes he has a special group of young men in his program. Four Breaux Bridge seniors have already made their college commitment. The first of those prospects to make their decision was wide out Travin Dural. Coach Broussard believes the sky is the limit for the talented Dural.

"He's been excellent," said Coach Broussard of Travin's fall practices. "We just have to find a way to get him the ball as many ways as we can.

"He can make so many things happen with the ball in his hands. He had a really good scrimmage and a really good jamboree.

"He just continues to get better. He still has a lot of improving to do, but he's working hard to get better."

One of the things that separates Travin from most receivers is his ability to go up and win the jump ball.

Coach Broussard explains that is an attribute that has paid a lot of dividends over the years.

"He won the state championship for 4A in the high jump," said Broussard. "He's about a 6-8,6-10 high jump.

"He really has some real leaping ability. Just about anybody you throw up there he has the potential to go get it.

"It gives the quarterbacks confidence because they know if they throw one in his vicinity that he's going to do everything he can to go get it."

Travin has great length and with his frame he will likely be an outside receiver at LSU, but Coach Broussard believes he has the potential to line up wherever Les Miles wants him to.

"I think he can play either inside or outside because he is going to get bigger," said Broussard. "He is a pretty big receiver, but I think it's going to be really about where they need him.

"I really think he's going to have a big career at LSU."
