By the time I thought of him I was about at the point where I was going to quit trying to rank them and instead sort of shifted to trying to get everybody on there that belongs in the conversation.

I'll move him up as we get all the names in.[/quote]


remember the stink when he signed a national LOI with aTm after signing a CONFERENCE LOI with LSU...

Lot of names on that list. Kevin Franklin should be on there somewhere.



This, Kevin Franklin should be on list. He was a Parade All-american, while Dunn was the QB on that team

There was this one guy named Cedric Skinner from Oberlin, think he outdid Michael Ford? Idk if he did, but he was still one of the best in Louisiana History.

He never made it to college, but Chris Ryan from Sulphur should be up high on that list.

Dude was an absolute monster.

Just couldn't spell the name of his home state.

What got Tony Citizen? He was a pretty decent back for McNeese. I don't recall a high school injury.

I think he might have had a cup of coffee in the NFL too.

Jamaican Dartez at Ceceila was a stud around the same time Faulk was at Carencro. I think he ended up at Tulane.

Dartez was really good. Once saw him field an onsides kick on a bounce and run it back for a TD. Haven't seen that very often.
