The stars shine

The high school football season is winding down but there are still several LSU prospects in action. Here is a rundown on how some of LSU's targets fared from this past weekend.

LSU Commitments


In a 42-32 win over Lufkin on Saturday, Russell Shepard ran for 323 yards and five touchdowns on 28 carries, was 7-of-15 passing for 87 yards, and had a fumble recovery on defense. In the Rams' two playoff wins, Shepard has run for 524 yards and eight touchdowns.


On the season, Shepard has completed 104-of-211 passes for 1,616 yards with 17 touchdowns and just four interceptions. On the ground, Shepard has rushed for 1,635 yards and 25 touchdowns on 226 carries.




Michael Ford and the Wampus Cats saw their season end Friday night, rushing for 299 yards and three touchdowns in Leesville's 21-19 loss to Zachary.


Ford finished the season with 2,953 yards and 29 touchdowns. Twice he broke the school's single-season rushing record, rushing for 335 yards against Sam Houston, and then 443 yards against Tioga. He averaged 8.8 yards a carry and 246 yards a game, finishing his career with 20 straight 100-yard games: all 12 in 2008, the four games he played last season and the last four of his sophomore season.


He also had two kickoff returns for touchdowns.



    4-star running back Dexter Pratt ran wild in Navasota's 48-33 win over Silsbee, carrying the ball 21 times for 171 yards and three touchdowns.


On the season, Pratt has rushed 170 times for 1,270 yards and 19 touchdowns.




Dominique Allen helped Paris to a 28-26 win over Melrose-Memphis Friday night, rushing 15 times for 88 yards and a touchdown.




Rayville wide out Kenny Bell ran for one score on a 57-yard end around and pulled in one pass for seven yards in Rayville's 42-19 loss to Parkview Baptist.



2009 Prospects

Rueben Randle helped Bastrop to a 36-22 win over Helen-Cox, completing 16-of-33 passing for 233 yards and a touchdown. Hampered by an injured hamstring suffered in last week's 47-6 first round victory over LaGrange, the Rams' leading rusher carried the ball only twice for two yards.


On the season, Randle has rushed for 610 yards and nine touchdowns. Through the air, the 5-star prospect has completed 132-of-243 passes for 1,836 yards and 18 touchdowns.




Central safety Josh Johns blocked two fields goals, the second returned for a game winning touchdown as time expired, in Central's 13-7 win over Brother Martin on Friday. He also logged seven tackles and picked off a pass.



        4-star tight end Orson Charles and Plant topped Lakewood 67-7 on Friday. Charles caught seven balls for 86 yards and a touchdown.


On the season, Charles has caught 55 passes for 1,105 yards and 16 touchdowns.




Sanford-standouts Andre Debose and Ray Ray Armstrong helped the Seminoles to a 38-12 win over Deland Friday night. Debose totaled four scores, rushing eight times for 186 yards and three touchdowns, also catching a 26-yard pass from Armstrong. Armstrong rushed for 61 yards and a touchdown while passing for 71 yards.




West Monroe linebacker Barkevious Mingo returned a blocked punt 23 yards for a touchdown in West Monroe's 41-28 win over St. Thomas More.



2010 Prospects


Trovon Reed and the Thibodaux Tigers saw their season extended Friday night on a last second field goal, topping St. Paul's 25-22. The junior standout, who had no yardage in the first half, finished the game with 113 rushing yards and two touchdowns and 140 receiving yards and a score. 




Connor Wood went 18-of-26 passing for 192 yards and a touchdown in Second Baptist's 24-20 loss to Denton Liberty Christian. Wood also rushed for 44 yards and a touchdown.



2011 Prospects


Kenny Hilliard’s sensational season came to an end with Patterson's 35-7 loss to Westlake. The talented back carried the ball 29 times for 109 yards.
