Bayou Bowl Pits More Than 40 D1 Players

The 5th Annual Bayou Bowl matching high school stars from Texas against their counterparts from Louisiana will be played on June 9 and with it some 40 Division I signees who will be suiting up this fall in top conferences including the Big 12, SEC, Big 10, Pac-10, Conference USA, Sun Belt and Western Athletic Conference.

Dick Olin, head coach at Baytown Lee and one of the game's founders and a member of the Bayou Bowl executive committee, said he expects a close game pitting quality players.

Some players who shined at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl will participate in the Bayou Bowl, including Louisiana safety Chad Jones and fellow safety Stefoin Francois.

Chris Massey, head coach at Deer Park, will guide Team Texas, while Chris Carrier will coach the Louisiana team.

The all-time Bayou Bowl series is tied at 2-2. Texas won the first two games, while Louisiana has won the past two years.
