Lissard Likes the Tigers
Joe Lissard was the state's most prolific passer in 2011, tossing seven touchdowns in one game and generally having his way with opposing secondaries. In the second round of the Class 2A playoffs, Lissard decimated Welsh's defense for 343 yards on 21-of-22 passing. Catholic-New Iberia enjoyed its best season in several years, reaching the quarterfinals before losing to Evangel Christian on the road. For his efforts, Lissard was named first-team all-state signal-caller. On Saturday, Lissard was at LSU for the Tigers' Junior Day. "It went really well," said Lissard (6-2, 205). "It was really nice." What stood out? "Obviously, for one, the facilities - the weight room, the locker room, and the indoor practice facility - are incredible," he stated. "The academic center really impressed me; how they have so many tutors. LSU has the second-highest graduation rate for student-athletes, behind Vanderbilt, and that's really great. "LSU is coming by in the spring to watch me. My area recruiter is Coach (John) Chavis. Tulane, UL and LSU are the main three sending me stuff. I'm going to send out my highlight tape soon and see who all responds. I have UL's Junior Day coming up on March 24th." The future is bright at Catholic High. "We will have a solid team," said Lissard. "I have a couple of my favorite receivers coming back, and we have six starters returning on defense."
