Beau Lasseigne is 6-foot-3, 180 pounds and he runs a consistent 4.6 in the forty yard dash.
He split time at quarterback and receiver with one of the nation's top
prospects for the Class of 2004 in Early Doucet for St. Martinville Senior High.
He also started at cornerback and handled his team's punting chores.
Lasseigne, who took home first team All-District honors at receiver, is a pure
athlete and knows how to play the game according to his former head coach and
longtime Louisiana coaching legend Carroll Delahoussaye.
"Beau is a possession type receiver with deceptive speed and great hands,"
Delahoussaye said. "He can jump and he has great hand-eye coordination. He's
like an Ed McCaffrey type, just a real good football player."
Lasseigne is also a baseball prospect who coaches are eyeing heading into his
senior campaign and he has a good chance of playing both sports at the next
level is he chooses to go that route.
"Right now I am mostly interested in the Louisiana schools like LSU, Tulane,
La. Tech and ULL (University of Louisiana at Lafayette)," Lasseigne said. "I'm
also hearing from Vanderbilt and Air Force too. Vanderbilt is a good school and
it would be nice to play in the SEC."
With a 4.0 grade point average and a 26 on the ACT, Lasseigne will be especially
valuable to recruiters that can't afford an academic miss.
He would love to play at LSU and since the Tigers are limited on the number of
scholarships available Lasseigne would be a great steal if he doesn't get an
offer but decided to walk-on with the defending national champs.
