Catholic-New Iberia made a run to the Division III semis this year, and the Panthers will have ammunition returning next fall in the form of 2015 prospects Andre Bellefontaine and Jason Pellerin. Keep reading to meet Bellefontaine, who would like to earn an offer from the local Ragin' Cajuns in Lafayette...

Andre Bellefontaine put his versatility on display the past two years, starring at wide receiver as a sophomore and running back as a junior.

Two years ago, he caught 50 passes for 835 yards and eight touchdowns in then-head coach Keith Menard's spread offense.

This year he moved to RB in current head coach Brent Indest's ground-oriented scheme.

"It's a really fun position to play," he said when asked about being the feature back. "My best two games were against Westminster and Opelousas Catholic.

"In each game I had about 180 yards rushing and two touchdowns. My best receiving games were against E.D. White and Erath. I had 70 yards against E.D. White and 50 against Erath."

Bellefontaine is interested in following the footsteps of Gabe Fuselier, a Catholic-New Iberia 2014 WR and Cajuns commit.

"It's close to home and it's a D-1 school," he said of UL. "They've won two bowl games so far, and I have two friends (Fuselier and QB Jason Pellerin) with a UL offer. It's just a really nice place."

The 5-10, 175-pounder is ready to put in the offseason work after his junior season came to an end last night in a 34-33 loss to Calvary Baptist.

"I want to improve my speed and do well at camps and combines so I can get offers," he said.
