Title: Where is talented SW Louisiana High School Football Players

Reading the recruits to McNeese doesn't instill much faith in our high schools in SW La to develope, encourage, and educate athletes to attend the local university. And only two to Louisiana's big U. Where are the players from Sulphur, West Lake, Iowa, Jennings, Lake Arthur, Kinder, Sam Houston, etc? Congrats to the guy from Barbe and the one from LaGrange that is transfering in from Tx San Antonio. If it wasn't for Texas and I use the term Northern LA High Schools the Cowboys would be in real bad shape. Hopefully all the recruits will do well and TX fans will come and cheer.
