Keep reading this free feature to meet Franklinton (LA) 2015 CB Josh Magee, a first-team all-state performer for head coach Shane Smith...

No one can say that Josh Magee failed to face top-drawer competition as a junior.

"I was holding some of the best receivers in the state," he said. "I had five picks and 10 passes broken up. I went up against Speedy Noil, Lorenzo Cryer, Donte Jackson, Jariah Tolbert...I did a little bit of one-on-one against Noil (nation's top receiver).

"We switch up a little bit between zone and man-to-man. I felt like I held my own this year. My strength is man-to-man. I'm a sure tackler. I went up against running backs like Jared West (Brother Martin) and Chris Thomas (Salmen)."

Magee, who says the Edna Karr QB didn't throw Noil's way when he was checking the five-star Texas A&M signee, is looking at Missouri, Louisiana Tech and the Cajuns in Lafayette.

"I had two big punt returns for 55 and 65 yards that each went for touchdowns," he added.

Franklinton, which won the Class 4A state title a few years ago behind the strength of an offense guided by Josh's relative, current LSU running back Terrence Magee, reached the quarters in 2013 (lost to Karr).

"I like playing for Coach (Shane) Smith at Franklinton," he said. "He brings it every day. He's real intense; I like that."
