Davis Nearing Decision?
"I'm visiting ULL this weekend and there's a strong chance I could commit," said Melvin Davis, who helped Karr to the Class 4A state finals in 2010. "ULL leads; I'm also thinking about visiting ULM and South Alabama." On Friday, Davis and the Cougars seek to hand Class 5A Destrehan (2-0) its first loss. Karr, which was ranked No. 1 in Class 4A entering the season, is winless after surprisingly one-sided setbacks to St. Paul's (38-7) and Arlington Bowie (36-6). The Cougars should be well-rested for Destrehan due to an 11-day layoff following a week two tilt vs. Bowie (played on Labor Day). "We're going to play with a chip on our shoulder," said Davis. "If we execute against Destrehan, we have a good shot. (First-year starting quarterback) Jazmen Riley is producing well at practice and his confidence is rising. "It's a big matchup with Destrehan. We beat them last year and now they're looking to beat us. With them being a 5A school, a win could also help us (with playoff power points). (Junior WR) Rickey Jefferson is a good player, but every good player can be stopped and I want to be the player to stop him. Our receiving corps (led by WR Jarrell Bennett and TE Standish Dobard) needs to play well, as does our offensive line, because I've heard Destrehan has a good defensive line."
