FOXSportsNEXT/Scout.com was in attendence at Catholic-NI on Tuesday afternoon for the Panthers' 7-on-7 clash with the St. Martinville Tigers. Free pics follow...

Class 2A Catholic-New Iberia and Class 4A St. Martinville hooked up Tuesday evening in 7-on-7 competition at Catholic High.

Each team has multiple college prospects: Catholic, which reached the 2011 2A quarters before falling on the road in Shreveport to 2A juggernaut Evangel Christian (2009 and 2010 state champ), lost more than one productive receiver to graduation but has a couple of great options in aggressive (he's also a DB) '14 WR Gabe Fuselier and 6-3, 190-pound '15 WR Jason Pellerin.

Fuselier completely jammed one overmatched foe at the line of scrimmage. He's stronger and meaner than you'd expect from a player his size (5-10, 175-pound range).

Pellerin hauled in a long TD catch from '13 QB Joe Lissard, who -- when on -- is almost sniper-like with accuracy. Lissard has a Central Arkansas offer, and you can certainly make the case (I am) that he's the second-best senior signal-caller in the state behind Damian Williams (Archbishop Rummel). There's some fine in-state quarterbacks who would (and will) give Lissard a severe test for the No. 2 spot, including St. Thomas More QB Brandon Bergeron, Jesuit's Tanner Lee (Tulane commit), Ruston's C.J. Gatlin, Airline's Hayden Hildebrand and Denzel Johnson (Patterson).

Check out the free photo gallery for pics of Lissard, Fuselier, athletic and destructive '14 S Joe Dworaczyk (younger brother of LSU OL Josh Dworaczyk) and Pellerin.

Catholic head coach Keith Menard, a veteran figure in the state's coaching ranks, says Pellerin could get 30 offers at QB before it's all said and done. This year, he's a big target at WR and could be an excellent safety.

St. Martinville features four senior returning starters: WR Kendall Wiltz, who has a nice frame with above-average height and long arms; RB Jude St. Julien (a 5-7 to 5-9 block of cement who will bull his way through the middle for short yardage - much more often than not); and RB/CB Jamiah Nelson, who has deceptive quickness and won't back down from a challenge (although he's prone to take occasional high-risk gambles).

SMHS, which was without undersized LB DeQuincy Narcisse (known for throwing his 190 pounds around the field with reckless abandon -- which pays dividends at times but also costs you containment and/or a 15-yard penalty on other less-fortunate situations).

The 4A Tigers, located in the seat of St. Martin Parish (15 min. drive north from New Iberia), began 2011 with a 4-1 mark prior to getting outmuscled by more-experienced teams like Breaux Bridge and St. Thomas More in district. SMHS was beaten in its final six contests of '11.
