Big Numbers for Breaux

Donaldsonville is 3-0 and the Tigers, led by junior QB Devon Breaux, are averaging 49 points per game. Breaux, who expects to play either WR or CB in college, attended SMU camp in Dallas last summer and he lists the Mustangs as one of his favorites.

Devon Breaux plans to play either wide receiver or cornerback in college, but there's no disputing that he's a top-notch quarterback.

Through three games, the junior from Donaldsonville has recorded some amazing numbers: 30-of-44 passing (68.2%) for 524 yards with seven TDs (and only one interception); 34 carries for 256 yards (7.53 yards per carry) on the ground with five TDs (and four two-point conversions).

"We're passing more than last year," said Breaux, who was the starting QB last season as a sophomore. "We run the spread with one back, (junior) Tre Brown.

"Tre has taken the pressure off me with his running (39-461, 11.82 ypc, three TDs). That's allowed us to open up the offense and use play-action effectively. We've been able to get the ball in the hands of our wide receivers, Jarrett Cole and Titus Howard."

Breaux already holds from Memphis and Tulane and he's getting interest from several other programs.

"I'm hearing from Ole Miss and Texas A&M the most," he said. "I like SMU's coach, Jeff Reinebold. He loves football. I went to SMU's camp and it went pretty good."

Donaldsonville's lone loss in the 2009 regular season came to district foe Capitol and Breaux has that matchup circled on his calender.

"I'm waiting on the Capitol game (October 15th)," he said. "We have to get payback from last year. East Feliciana will be another tough game. They're a new school that combined Clinton High and Jackson High."

Breaux and the Tigers will also face SMU commit Nyle Johnson and Dunham in district play later this season.
