Back in Louisiana

Hurricane Katrina caused offensive lineman Kyle Plouhar to move to Salem (Ore.) last fall. Plouhar played for Sprague High School in Salem in 2005 but now things are better in Louisiana, Kyle has returned to the South.

In the winter of 2004, Kyle Plouhar's parents moved to Salem (Ore.) while Kyle stayed in Louisiana and lived with his brother so that he could continue at Fontainebleau HS in Mandeville. When Katrina hit Kyle was forced to rejoin his parents in Salem. Consequently, Plouhar played on Sprague's 11-2 team last fall, but now things are more normal in Louisiana and because there is no spring football in Oregon, Kyle went back to Louisiana. He is currently staying with a friend and is working with a trainer and getting ready to attend some camps this summer.

A number of schools are sending Kyle letters including Michigan, Michigan State, Oregon, Oregon State, LSU, Mississippi, Southern Miss, Notre Dame, Miami (Fla.) and USC. Kyle plans to attend camps at Oregon, Michigan, Michigan State, LSU and Southern Miss. Coach Neal Zoumboukos has been Kyle's point of contact at Oregon.

His top-5 programs now are Michigan State, Michigan, LSU Southern Miss and Oregon.

While Plouhar has not received any offers yet, it is probably a matter of time. He wants to improve his conditioning for the camps and has been working hard toward that goal. He is planning on attending the Nike camp either in Baton Rouge or perhaps in Eugene.
