    Amazing that when Charles Alexander enters the game there are three players on defense from Breaux Bridge ! Has LSU ever had a trio or more from one high school that all played at the same time ? Jesse Daniels will be moving on but John Williams will come in next year.

    I think during Hallman's day we had a trio from Catholic High...running back Kevin Franklin, a receiver whose last name was Ray, and a quarterback whose name escapes me.

    A number of guys from one school happens from time to time. It was a lot more common in the days before the 85-scholarship limit. McClendon had far more guys on scholarship in the 60's. Many never dressed for a game.

    Is that where the "naked bootleg" developed ?
