Just west of Lake Maurepas, on Highway 22, between the I-10 (Sorento) and I-12 (Ponchatoula). Maurepas High School competes at Class C. Kid is solid and has done well to make it to LSU coming from such a small school. ...

I couldn't agree more. And to further that point, I am tired of seeing some here blame the staff for "letting" a few studs "get away" as if it's something the staff did wrong. Sorry, but some ...

You lost me with the comparison to Brown (Presumably you mean Mack Brown), who pretty much deserves a lot of criticism for doing the least with the most talent (Mark Richt would be another).
