 In many programs being a Freshman can be a daunting experience. Many want to be players often find themselves cut or reduced to toiling on the sub-varsity team. These sub-varsity players can find themselves as trainers, ball managers, or refreshment specialists during tournament time. Yet some Freshmen find themselves talented enough or lucky enough to make, get minutes, or actually make impacts in games. Today I will highlight a few young stars I've seen, who are paying their dues in an effort to be BIG MEN ON CAMPUS!!!!


Austin Delahoussey 5’9” New Iberia PG 2024
Having five guys currently in football forced coach Todd Russ to call on a freshman to fill the lineup. Watching New Iberia twice this early in the year I noticed a steady hand at the point guard position. He wasn’t doing anything out of the ordinary, but he soundly did his job. After further discovery, I found out this baby-faced youngster was only a freshman. Watching Delahoussey play and learning about his early morning workouts…. coach Russ has a special player in the making.

Todd Jones Newman 6’7” F 2004
Jones is a rarity in Louisiana, a young tall kid
