3-star running back Shawnbrey McNeal ran for 217 yards and 4 TDs on 13 carries in Dallas (Texas) Madison's 56-14 win over Fort Worth Castleberry. For the year, McNeal has 1,277 yards and 20 TDs rushing on only 118 carries.

4-star wide out Dez Bryant hasn't been much from LSU of late but the Lufkin (Texas) standout may be someone the coaches fall back on. Bryant looked good against The Woodlands on Friday as he caught a pair of touchdown passes and finished with 8 catches for 70 yards in the 31-7 victory.'s 7th ranked receiver Ron Brooks went over the 1,000-yard mark rushing in Irving (Texas) MacArthur's 35-24 loss to South Grand Prairie. Brooks topped the 100-yard mark and scored twice on a 76-yard break away and a 4-yard run. That gives the 4-star wide out over 1,850 yards and 25 TDs combined rushing, passing and receiving.


Out thoughts and prayers go out to LSU commitment, Delvin Breaux, who suffered a break in his neck and is scheduled to undergo surgery later this week. Breaux suffered the injury while covering a kickoff for McDonough 35.


Lionel Breaux notched another 100-yard receiving night for in McDonough 35's 20-9 victory over Jesuit. One of his catches he took all the way to the house for a 77-yard touchdown.

Class of 2009


Newman quarterback Wes Luquette (6-2, 200, 4.7) threw 4 TD passes in a wild 43-40 win over South Plaquemines.


The number of talented running backs in Louisiana for 2009 is really unreal.
