No Shortage Of Talent At Northside

Northside High School is a must-see for college recruiters that are assigned to south Louisiana. Keiland Williams, Jarrod Shaw, and Tyson Andrus are a few names that come to mind when one thinks of former Viking standouts. Read on to find out more about current Northside star Tevin Narcisse.

When you think of 4A football powerhouses in Louisiana, Northside is definitely on the short list. The Lafayette school seems to make a deep run in the postseason every year and the Vikings were a 2009 quarterfinal team.

This year's version of the Vikings appears to be as salty as ever, with the likes of DT Tyler Porter, RB Terrell Alfred, WR/DB Malcolm Glaze, and WR/DB Tevin Narcisse returning for their senior seasons.

Narcisse, a 5-foot-9, 175-pound corner/wide receiver, worked out at Louisiana Tech's camp in Baton Rouge last week and the senior feels like he made a good impression on the Tech coaching staff.

"I felt like I did good in the DB drills," said Narcisse, whose brother (Quinten Lawrence) plays for the Kansas City Chiefs. "The DB coach said that I looked good and that he's going to come watch me play this year. He said that I have the potential to play on the next level.

"I'm also going to the second session of LSU's camp and I'm planning on making camps at McNeese, Tulane, Northwestern State, and Louisiana-Lafayette."

Narcisse hauled in 30 passes for 400 yards with four TDs (along with 600 return yards) last year, but he feels that his future on the next level lies at cornerback.

"I expect to mostly play defense this season," he said. "In the spring game, I had three pass deflections and five tackles. I'm getting letters from Louisiana-Lafayette, McNeese, Northwestern State, Grambling, and Southern. I've talked to Tim Leger, who is a recruiter for McNeese. He coached my brother in college.

"I think we have a good chance to win state this year, if we get a good effort from our offensive line. Tyler Porter is a great defensive tackle, one of the best I've ever seen. Malcolm Glaze is a great wide receiver who is being recruited heavily, and running back Terrell Alfred is an outstanding football player."
