LaRon Landry names leader

Hahnville High School two-way standout LaRon Landry has made a lot of noise on the football field during his senior campaign and one can expect to hear a lot more as we inch closer and closer to National Signing Day.

He has accounted for more than 20 scores on offense from his quarterback spot and picked off six passes at free safety in leading the Tigers to a 10-1 record and a spot in the second round of the state playoffs.


The same five schools keep calling the most but Landry said he has a definitive leader at this time.


"LSU leads Florida, Miami, Florida State and Colorado," he said. "LSU is close to my hometown and I think I would have a great chance to go in and start."


While some coaches believe Landry could excel on offense or defense at the next level, it is an easy decision for him as to where he wants to play.


"I have speed and I'm a hitter," Landry said. "When they come my way and I lay it down on them, they tip-toe across for the rest of the game.  They're waiting on the next hit and everything. They come through there slow because they don't want to catch the ball."


Landry has the necessary grade point average but he is waiting on the results of his last ACT score to see if he got the two points he needs to qualify.


Sonny's View: Landry is battling O. Perry Walker's Darrell Johnson as the state's top free safety prospect. Landry wants to play early in his collegiate career and that is one of the main reasons the Tigers have pushed ahead of the defending national champion Miami Hurricanes.
