Thompson: "Going to Make a Difference"
"Tulane lost Saturday (to Tulsa), but they beat Southeastern in the first game," said Lazedrick Thompson. "It's not really a factor for me when they lose a game; when I get there, I'm going to make a difference. North Texas is the only school that's continuing to go after me hard. It's kinda surprising that everyone backed off, but I'm also kinda stuck on Tulane. "I might take some official visits if other schools come back around, but I want Tulane fans to get ready for next year; it's going to be different." Thompson and the Comets reached the Class 2A semifinals last year before losing to eventual state champion Evangel Christian. This year, the LaPlace-based school moved up to 3A following reclassification. "We're ranked No. 1 in 3A and want to continue working harder," said Thompson. "We're taking it one game at a time. Last week (48-7 win over Vandebilt Catholic) was somewhat surprising because they have a good running back (Elijah McGuire) and quarterback, but we outmanned them. "Hard work is paying off." In week one, St. Charles demolished Tate (Pensacola, Fl.), 42-0. Thompson has rushed for approximately 200 yards with three touchdowns on the year. This Friday, 5A Northshore (1-1) visits the Comets.
