Elite 11 Invite For Landor

Teurlings Catholic QB Dshaie Landor took his team to the Class 4A semifinals last year and the good tidings have continued to flow for the junior from Lafayette, Louisiana.

"I got invited to the Elite 11 Regional Trials at TCU on April 9th," said Dshaie Landor. "The invitation meant a lot to me, because this is something my dad and I had looked at in the past. I always wanted to go to the Elite 11 competition. It's a great chance to compete nationally against the best quarterbacks."

Landor also feels that he might be closing in on his first scholarship offer.

"I called Coach (Michael) Norvell from Pittsburgh last week and we had a good conversation," said Landor. "He told me to call him every week until he can start calling me.

"They didn't take a quarterback in 2011, and so their 2012 quarterback is going to be the QB of the future."

Although Landor hails from south Louisiana, he says that distance won't necessarily be a factor when it comes to choosing a college.

"The distance isn't a problem," he explained. "On the one hand, my parents would like to be able to come see me play each week, but they just want me to be comfortable. I'm willing to learn how to play in the cold weather up north."

Teurlings Catholic was seeded in the bottom half (No. 20 out of 32 teams) of the 2010 Class 4A playoff bracket, but the Rebels surprised the rest of the state by reeling off three playoff wins. Landor, the top prospect on the squad, caused defensive coordinators much grief with his dual-threat abilities.
