Archbishop Shaw running back Lawrence Breaud turned heads at this week's scrimmage vs. Helen Cox High School and Breaud plans on turning more heads when he attends camp at SMU this summer.

"I'm going to SMU's summer camp," said Breaud. "I've talked to their coach and he's a cool guy. I'm ready to visit their campus and see what it's like. I have family in the Dallas area. My brother lives in Carrollton."

Breaud (5-foot-10, 190 pounds) said that the Mustangs will offer him a scholarship if the camp goes well and things certainly went well in the scrimmage vs. Cox.

"I started at quarterback and I started slow at first," he said, "but I ended up with 200 yards rushing on 25 carries. I played quarterback, running back, and even wide receiver, but I wasn't tired.

I threw one pass, but the receiver dropped it. We have some young receivers. I also caught a screen pass for about 20 yards. I had two touchdowns in the scrimmage."

Last year, Breaud racked up 1,313 yards on the ground with 16 touchdowns for the Eagles. In addition, he caught 13 passes for 213 yards. Breaud stays productive all 12 months of the year, participating in AAU basketball in addition to football.

"I hoop year-round," he said. "Spring practice in football went nice, but it's hot as I don't know what. We had some schools -- SMU, Louisiana-Lafayette, ULM, Kentucky, and Kansas -- come down to watch us practice. Coach tries to keep things so we don't know who exactly is there - that way we don't get the big head."

Breaud's coach, Scott Bairnsfather, told the local media after the scrimmage that his standout running back will likely get more touches this fall than any Shaw player in history.
