Vital Data: Vincent entered his senior season as the most-heralded running back in the state of Louisiana and did nothing to tarnish that honor as the year progressed. He closed out his prep career with 2,314 yards (5,464 career – school record) and 40 touchdowns. Coach Jimmy Shaver elected to line him up at quarterback on some plays to give a new look to opposing defenses.
Tiger Rag's take: The depth situation is good at running back for LSU, but there is always room at the top for a freshman who can separate himself from the back. Vincent has this ability and fall practice will determine whether he's destined for a redshirt or legitimate playing time.
The Scoop: With 4.5 speed, it is no surprise that Vincent has been a strong contributor on the Barbe track and field team. He was part of the 4-x-100-meter relay team that advanced to the state finals in Class 5A last year. Vincent was also a prominent part of the Barbe baseball team that competed for the state championship in 2001.
