Conference Preview

Posted On: 10/16/15 5:30 PM

In this installment of our class previews, we get another class that has two state champions from last season that are loaded for a repeat. With last season's 4A champion on it's way to 5A, it'll be a fun season to see which team comes out on top and if anyone can throw a wrench in a possible showdown for the ages. This class is loaded with national talent and a plethora of D2 to NAIA athletes.

State Champions

Scotlandville won the 5A title again last year after losing to Natchitoches Central the year before. They've been in every state title game since 2010 and have now won 3 of the last 4. They'll be led by last season's MVP in 2018 PG Javonte Smart who is nationally ranked in Top 10 in every service. 2016s Garrick Green and Jordan Adebutu will be crucial to the repeat.

One big reason Scotlandville will struggle to be the odds on favorite is because of Lamar Peters (MSU Commit) and Landry-Walker. They are looking to three peat and the move to 5A doesn't scare them one bit. Cam Lard moved in from Natchitoches Central and gives them a dominant big to add to Peters and 2017 PG Lamont Berzat.
