LSU QB commit Lindsey Scott eager to return focus to winning after recruiting whirlwind

The reasons for his eventual commitment to the Tigers, his final scholarship offer, were as varied as the questions he fielded Monday.

Or at least more varied than some fans might have expected.

“The relationship was always great. Coach Cameron kept in touch with us, and he was always there. We built a strong relationship over the past couple summers … I always knew LSU had a great football team and a great football tradition, but the selling point for me was kind of getting on campus and seeing the things I was really impressed with, like the new engineering building that they’re building and the academic foundation that they have over there.

The 5A MVP, excited about the offer, but not putting the mystique of the hometown Tigers over other schools that have offered him a chance already.

For Scott, his decision will come down to not only football, but a multitude of things that will better his future.

National Signing Day is February 3rd.

Defensive back P.J. Cannon makes big impact for Zachary

“I know I’m not an eye-candy guy,” Cannon said. “I’m not one of those cornerbacks who’s 6-foot-2 or 6-3 or a guy all the colleges want. PJ 1

“Using the ability I have to make plays … that’s what I try to do. I spend more time watching film. I work hard. I have no control over the other stuff.”

Don’t make the mistake of thinking the 5-foot-9, 170-pound Cannon doesn’t have the right stuff to be an impact player. He’s a senior and a three-year starter who will be expected to play a key role when the second-seeded Broncos (12-1) host No. 6 Parkway (12-1) for a Class 5A semifinal game set for 7 p.m. Friday.PJ 2

“P.J. wants to be involved in everything,” defensive backs coach Chris Carrier said. “He wants to play defense, return kicks and be involved in the offense.PJ 3





“We have to slow him down and say ‘Hey wait a minute, you’re too valuable to us on defense.’
