Green Wave Reels in Rounds
Eleanor McMain Secondary School, located near the Tulane campus, is home to Joshua Rounds, who decided today that he wanted to further his career with the Green Wave. "This weekend went real good," said Rounds. "Everything went as planned. I go to school right down the street at McMain, and now I'll be in the area for four more years. I've watched Tulane practice and play; as part of the team, I'll be able to tell if there's a difference in the program in the future. "The Tulane staff is great. They have experience, and Tulane will have a good offense. Everybody this weekend was nice. Four local guys all committed." Rounds says the Green Wave has a bright future. "They have a new stadium, a new weight room, and new uniforms coming," he said. "10 million dollars invested. "Tulane was my first offer. Coach (Curtis) Johnson and I both spoke at the New Orleans Quarterback Club after the season ended. A few days after that, he offered." Rounds led McMain to its best season in years. The Mustangs reached the Class 3A quarterfinals, as Rounds - the Offensive Outstanding Player in 3A - rushed for 34 touchdowns. "I had 2,200 rushing yards with 400 receiving and 38 total touchdowns," he said. "Last year (2010), we lost in the first round. We beat (highly-seeded) Livonia in the second round (of the '11 playoffs) in a shootout but lost to Amite in the quarterfinals. Amite had a good defense. "I hope McMain can go even further next year." Rounds described himself as "thankful" and mentioned that former teammate Brandon Lebeau is a current Tulane player.
