St. Paul's finished the regular season 10-0 and landed the No. 1 seed in the 5A playoffs, although the Wolves were stunned in the first round by No. 32 Central.
"We're doing good, but it was hard at first," said Ed Duplessis, who completed the season with 52 tackles and an interception. "I got second-team all-district. Next year, we just have to carry on the St. Paul's tradition and keep going.
"I'm working on my speed and getting stronger. I need to improve on getting to the ball; getting off blocks quicker. I played this year at 195 pounds and want to play at 210-215 as a senior. We're going to start lifting a couple of nights next week after school."
Duplessis says his favorites are LSU and Alabama, in that order. His former teammate, DT Mickey Johnson, is a freshman at LSU. Current teammate and classmate Jay Washington also lists LSU as his top school.
Duplessis recorded a season-high eight stops with an interception in St. Paul's 38-7 rout of 4A power Karr in the season opener.
