A four-year starting running back at St. Augustine, Fournette was regarded as the No. 1 high school player in the nation for the 2013 season. He was named the USA Today National Offensive Player of the Year as well as being selected as a member of the All-USA First Team and the prestigious Parade All-America First Team.

The first player in Louisiana history to twice be named the state's Gatorade Player of the Year, he finished his high school career with 7,619 rushing yards and 88 rushing touchdowns, including 1,792 yards and 16 touchdowns as a senior.
Fournette is the first high school athlete to win the Award since its inception in 1967.
