Scout Presents the Stars of the South, Louisiana Edition. We'll share with you the top performances from the weekend of August 27th.

  • Rickey Jefferson

    Wide Receiver/Defensive Back - 6-0, 185

    Destrehan

    Jefferson intercepted a pass and ran for a touchdown in Destrehan's 14-6 win over Lutcher. He also defensed/broke up several passes and returned an interception to the house (although it was negated by penalty).

  • Jay Washington

    Safety - 6-2, 200

    St. Paul's

    Washington, a junior, set the tone for the game on the first two plays from scrimmage. On the first play, he delivered a vicious hit to a would-be receiver; separating the football in the process. On the next play, Washington blitzed, sacked the QB and forced a fumble that put Archbishop Rummel in a 3rd-and-14 position.

  • Carlton Perkins

    Running Back - 5-11, 180

    Walker

    Perkins, also a junior, ran for 186 yards on 13 carries with two touchdowns in Walker's 28-6 win over Pine.

  • Jontrey Tillman

    Defensive Back - 5-9, 165

    West Saint Mary

    Tillman, a Stanford commit, returned an interception for a touchdown in West Saint Mary's romp over Morgan City.

  • Jarett Triplett

    Defensive Tackle - 5-8, 205

    Ouachita

    Triplett stripped a fumble from a Bastrop RB, snatched the football before it dropped to the ground, and brought it back to paydirt. Triplett added a forced fumble, sack and two more tackles in his team's win over Bastrop.

  • Devin Eaglin

    Running Back - 5-9, 210

    Westlake

    Eaglin, a bruising senior back, gained 73 yards on 11 carries and scored once in Class 3A Westlake's 12-0 upset of Class 5A Sulphur.

    __________________________

  • Darion Monroe

    Quarterback - 5-10, 175

    East St. John

    Monroe, a four-star cornerback and Texas A&M commit, plays QB on the high school level. He tossed two scoring strikes to WR Rashad Green in the Wildcats' win over St. Charles Catholic.

  • Kameryon Brown

    Safety - 6-2, 200

    Southern Lab

    Brown collected 14 tackles on defense and caught a touchdown pass at TE for the Class A Kittens. Brown was the sole bright spot in his team's one-sided loss to Class 5A Scotlandville.

  • Jalen Nixon

    Quarterback - 6-2, 225

    Carencro

    Nixon connected with WR Shawn Thomas on a 10-yard fade for a TD and set up two more scores with adept passing and strong running. Carencro defeated Cecilia, 24-0.

  • Donald Gage

    Wide Receiver - 5-10, 165

    Redemptorist

    Gage and the Wolves dropped their jamboree game to Class 5A Catholic-BR, but Gage performed well, accumulating 70 receiving yards, scoring a touchdown and also converting on a two-point conversion.

  • Clarence Scott

    Safety - 6-4, 205

    East St. John

    Scott had one big play and it was a monster. He chased down St. Charles Catholic RB Lazedrick Thompson near the end of an 80-yard run and forced the Tulane commit to fumble away the football near the goal-line. Thus, East St. John's win was preserved, and it was also the first time East St. John had prevailed against St. Charles Catholic in three years.

  • Kolby Copeland

    Quarterback - 6-2, 185

    Parkway

    Copeland directed his team to a 20-7 win over crosstown Bossier City rival Airline. On the first play from scrimmage, Copeland found Malcolm Rogers for a 48-yard TD pass.
