At 6-foot-1 and 275 pounds, St. Pierre is coming off an excellent spring that ended on Thursday night in a game against Carol City.
"They were tough," St. Pierre said. "Their O-Line was better than I thought. I had one sack and almost had two but the guy pitched the ball off at the last second. I was ready to nail him."
St. Pierre, who also competes in varsity track (shot-49 and discus-135), is emerging as one of the state's top defensive tackle prospects.
"I'll be going into my fourth year playing," he said. "When I first started, I really didn't know what I was doing. I started watching tapes of Reggie White to see the little things he does well. I've learned a lot the last couple years."
As a junior last season, St. Pierre finished the year with 32 tackles and four sacks. He's ready for a big senior year.
"I wanna help our team win more and go deep into the playoffs," he said.
St. Pierre, who plans on attending a camp in Lakeland called Down & Dirty, said the little things are what make him different.
"I see a lot of big guys out there think just because they're big they'll dominate," he said. "I stay low, play with good leverage. That's how you win inside. And I use my hands better than most guys. When I go to college, I'm gonna just keep working harder than the competition."
Speaking of college, St. Pierre will have plenty of options. He fielded over a dozen calls during May.
"Florida called, Syracuse, Iowa, Akron, a bunch of them," he said. "The UM coach talked to my coach about me. I don't have any offers yet. They're waiting to see about my SAT scores. I really don't have any favorites or anything like that. I'm just trying to do my best. I hope people like Miami keep showing interest."
St. Pierre has a teammate named L.D. Highsmith, the brother of former UM recruit Ali Highsmith, who is also a Division 1 prospect.
