Vault's Stock is on the Rise

Trey Vault has put together a storied career at Block High School and he still has one more year to add to his resume.

Trey Vault has put together a storied career at Block High School and he still has one more year to add to his resume.  A two-time first-team all-state selection, Vault was named Defensive MVP at the team banquet this week.  As a sophomore, the defensive end/outside linebacker hybrid notched 70 tackles, along with 15 sacks, six forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.  Last season, Vault (6-1, 215) upped the ante even more, recording 78 tackles and 18 sacks. 


"Trey has a lot of physical ability," said his position coach, Mark Krause.   "I believe he is running a 4.7 forty.  I know he is benching about 320 pounds and cleaning around 270 lbs.  I really look for Trey to put on at least 10 more pounds before kickoff this fall.  Trey played the last two years at defensive end for me and did great. 


“This year he will be playing linebacker for us, as kind of a roaming defender - similar to what Seth Ancar (Louisiana Tech signee) did last year for South Plaquemines.  He is a very emotional player who loves the game more than most others.  He can be a very punishing hitter and has a good nose for the football.  So far, he has proven himself to be a great leader on the field and in the weight room."


Block finished last season 5-5 and entered the Class A playoffs as the No. 22 seed.  However, the Bears were able to go on the road and upset No. 11 Southern Lab in the first-round, before dropping a close game to powerhouse West St. John the following week.


"We're in our second week of spring practice right now," said Vault.  "We lost a bunch of seniors and our team numbers are a little lower, but we do have the best running back returning.  Louisiana-Lafayette, Southern, Louisiana-Monroe, Louisiana Tech, Northwestern State, and Nicholls State have all been by the school during spring.  Louisiana-Lafayette, Tech, and Southern all talk like they'll offer me after the spring.


"I like Louisiana-Lafayette a lot.  I also like Southern, since that's my dad's alma mater.  Last year, Louisiana-Lafayette was recruiting one of my teammates who was a senior and they noticed me too.  They told my dad that they would offer me as either a defensive end or an outside linebacker."


Vault and the Bears will cap off their spring training with a scrimmage against Franklin Parish of Winnsboro.
